the nra would love it here

two women, both late-thirties and dressed plain for cold weather, stopped mid-sidewalk, mid-conversation to scurry over to a shop window. one asked the other how much the object for sale cost like a schoolgirl picking out a dress on a lark.

in german, she said, “how much is that luger in the window?”

these two women had stopped suddenly to impulse buy a pistol.

they rushed inside like mallrats half their age.
