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.

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.
You could do that, but you'd be forced to change or shut down very quickly. The two are not the same.Hell, I could open a store and forbid gays from shopping there - they have no more constitutional right than an individual that open/carries.
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?
