    Being followed does not constitute a threat. I often follow other cars going down the road just happen to be going the same way. Does that constitute a threat to the driver in front of me?
    Nope.

    Is this still an issue? Your hero got off with no charges and is free to practice his 2nd amendment rights and point guns at his girlfriend.

    So there's pressure on Target to restrict gun carrying. Now my own opinion is that open carry like this is more harmful to gun rights. If guns are OK, what else should openly allowed? Should we openly allow gay sex in the frozen foods aisle? You have that right too, right? It's my right to go barefoot, but they won't let me do that.
    I think carrying rifles into a store is a bit asinine. But when people want to take away ones constitutional right, those in favor of retaining their rights will push back. I would never carry my rifle or shotgun into targets or any other store, but if I was wearing my .38 I would give it a second thought. But actions like this, carrying rifles in a Target store is what happens when some people want to trample on other people’s rights. Both sides go to the extremes.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    There's a difference between someone happening to be behind you and being followed. But I also get that when someone talks about that case, there's no sanity.

    Target is a private sector company, they should be allowed to ban whatever they want from their stores as long as the bans do not violate civil rights. And people can choose whether or not to shop there.

    Target absolutely has a right to say what you can or cannot do on their property. If they don't want people bringing guns in their doors, that is their prerogative. That said, I don't personally favor such a ban. Some one carrying a rifle slung on their shoulder doesn't bother me, as long as its done in a safe manner.

    I don't get the freak out reaction on both sides. Some people are all like "Oh my God, a gun! Run for the hills!" and others act as if Target or Chipolte is somehow infringing upon their rights to own a gun. To me both sides need to just calm down and chill a little.

    I thought this thread was about Target selling rifles.

    Although your OP is retarded, Target can have whatever kind of dress code they want.

    I was going to ask which stores OP was talking about because I've never seen a Target sell rifles either.
