    not if there is a law against it.

    It's a two-way street here.
    no not even in the same city

    Do you really recommend stepping over that line? because it's only asking for trouble.
    over the line of businesses deciding what is best for their business?
    Let people do what they do and live free until they actually physically hurt someone.
    Target is free to ban guns.
    who have they hurt?

    Really? show me an Amendment that upholds homosexual marriage. And don't even attempt to show laws that legalized interracial marriage because gays are NOT interracial, and quite frankly I'm getting upset at gays comparing themselves to slaves or even interracial couples.

    anti-discrimination laws in some place require businesses open to the public to not discriminate against gay people. So....a bakery that sells cakes cannot discriminate against a gay couple wanting one for their wedding. As for you getting upset about something I didn't do well great. But I think you are just upset that there are gay people in the world and that Target has a right to ban open carry in their store. You should relax.

    You do realize that forbidding individuals from open and carry is a discrimination - not only against the individual but discriminating against the Second Amendment.

    Furthermore - homosexuality is NOT a civil liberty - owning and displaying guns are, so you're attempting to turn a fringe argument into a civil liberty which obviously isn't - anyone who has ever taken a civics class damn well knows homosexuality is not a "civil liberty." Now, I know you actually believe it is and wish it was but it's not hence it's not legal "discrimination."

    I suppose you may have a discrimination case with EOE if a homosexual was denied employment based on his sexuality - but that is a far cry from a civil rights argument.

    Of course you wouldn't understand the difference so I can't say I'm shocked.

    Business can restrict Constitutionally protect stuff as much as they want since the Constitution only applies to the Government and not private business.

    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.

    No they should not.

    Most mass shooters kill themselves and the ones that don't often admit that "suicide by cop" was their goal. Just like control laws have no impact on criminals, the presence of armed people has no impact on those who aren't thinking rationally.

    Target is private property. They can do as they please.
