3. Yeah, Gilroy the "Garlic Capital of the World", wants to stay classy, LoL

 

Been there many times and Gilroy is not a tourist destination, more of a "novelty stop", just a nice, small town using their local garlic farms to try and pull in a few passing tourists on their way from LA to SFO.

Comparing themselves to places like Los Gatos is like comparing a new Bentley Speed to a 76 Chevy Impala.

To support them in their fight against evil gunz, all you gun control fans here need to buy a "Mr. Garlic" T-Shirt?

Gilroy has a struggling old downtown area with a share of boarded up closed stores that should be happy for the tax revenue any functioning business can bring in.

But we've had the same thing here in the Chicago area in several suburbs, where the Bloomberg Astroturf Mom's Demand Action show up at Town Halls and Zoning Meetings and try to stop any new range or gun store by claiming danger to schools more than a mile away.

They are 0 for 6 so far.
