    So you are agreeing with me, disguised as arguing with me. I've been telling you that a business can ban guns on their property and the constitution does not come into play at all if they do, and you finally get it.

    Once you're out of the system you can vote and buy guns.... Sure it takes 7 years for that felony to go away but you can still vote if you're off parole - it just takes 7 years to clear your name to buy a gun.

    I've bought a few.
    I have a friend who was convicted of manslaughter and will be able to buy guns in just a couple months.

    My bad, it varies state by state, but in most states convicted felons can never own guns or vote again, so people do lose their constitutional rights.

    Should Target take action to prevent people from walking around in their stores with long guns? That answer should come from Target itself, and not from the government, or political talking heads. If it is driving other people away, then it would be a good business practice to disallow carrying long guns inside their stores. And, if the bottom line is unaffected, and people are not leaving because they feel uncomfortable around others who carry long guns inside Target stores, then I don't see why people shouldn't be allowed to carry long guns inside Target stores. It's all about the market place, and Target's decision will be based on the impact upon their business, and not based on politics. In short, common sense will rule here.

Target can also kick you out of their store for cursing too loudly and it would not be a violation of your constitutional rights.
    I know exactly what 'm talking about....

    In reality I could sue a store if I was open and carrying and there was no sign posted that said such an act was forbidden.

    It's store policies.

    Hell, I could open a store and forbid gays from shopping there - they have no more constitutional right than an individual that open/carries.

    In reality you could sue a store for absolutely anything you want to.

    You could do that, but you'd be forced to change or shut down very quickly. The two are not the same.

    Damn right it should be store policy and not government policy weather or not a business is willing to accept open carry, and I'm sure in some regions it's more acceptable to open/carry than others.

    I'm still not sure why anyone would want to go shopping with a rifle, I could certainly see a sidearm but a rifle is just making a political statement - and there is nothing wrong with that.

    Also, who really cares anyways?

    Who on this thread argued that it SHOULDN'T be store policy? Of course it should be store policy, if they want it. Government doesn't come into play in this, and shouldn't.

    Quit interchanging law with your opinions...

    IF you can refuse to serve a man embracing his Second Amendment rights then you sure in the hell can refuse to serve a homosexual - who have ZERO rights beyond what the Bill of Rights grants them.

    You want it to be store policy because you hate the Second Amendment and I would oppose such a store policy for tyrannical ideas.
