Stores being shaken down by local and federal authorities is nothing new. A close friend owns a retail music store in North Jersey, and he tells me all kinds of stories about the local "code enforcement" gang showing up and trying to "squeeze" him for alleged code infractions.

I'm not saying its right, but the gun store owners are not alone in being harassed. I bet if an envelope was passed under a table in a diner, the problem would go away immediately.
