I will say that carrying rifles in public places like this is generally either political statements or attention whoring, as Goshin said, and sometimes the two are hard to distinguish. There is no real reason for it, but we don't need reasons to justify the exercise our rights. That's why they are called rights. Just as I agree that Target has the right to disallow rifles or guns or yellow shirts in their store. I just don't see the reason for fervor on either side. If someone wants to be an attention whore and carry a rifle, more power to you, as long as its done safely. If a company or individual doesn't want to allow that sort of thing on their property, more power to them as well. Of the two, I'd say the company's response is more "reasonable" since some people are obviously freaked out by the very sight of a weapon and it could affect their bottom line if gun toting attention whores scare away other customers. But again, there is nothing illegal about being a gun toting attention whore either. I just personally think there about a billion better things to do with your time.

I see this as a case of a store owner not allowing certain kinds of property in his store. Which is far more reasonable than a store owner benefiting from taxes paid by the populace and then deciding to discriminate against certain members of that populace. You can't walk into Target with a dog unless there are certain circumstances around the dog. You can't walk into target wearing a spandex thong. You can't even go into Target while riding a sled pulled by reindeer. So why should guns be any different?
I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK
I sold it.....
It was super cheap and the return was insane..... It's difficult to sell online but if you can get a few thousand units into a retail environment you're making 4-6 times your initial investment - it's actually a very lucrative business.
I don't produce or watch the DVD's I have (in the past) just distributed them.... IM a CD guy that buys 100's to 10,000 at at time and got into porno distribution by accident and since I could make 6x on my initial investment the nasty factor went away quick,
I say it is a wonderful thing that gun fetishists want to open carry semi-automatic assault rifles into stores and restaurants. I personally encourage it.
Nothing will make the general population more uncomfortable with the gun fetishists crazies than that practice becoming common place.
I am for much stricter gun control and there is no faster way to achieve that goal than to allow open carry of assault rifles ...everywhere.
Lock, load and carry ...
Bring it ohn!
Any clown that uses the term "bad guy" in a redundant manner has a serious mental issue..... Am I a "bad guy" for being a bit tipsy on my way to get a cup of coffee 3 blocks way from my home?
Of course I am - because mommy and daddy put "bad guys" away - not simple pedestrians.
Cops make me want to puke - They're enforcers of the totalitarian regime..
I'd love to see nothing more than to see cops get severely hurt - because they would love nothing more than to kill them some "bad guys."
I've seen who the "bad guy" is and it is noting more than me, her or the next guy - that's the "bad guy"
The bad guy is also the guy with the ****ing cellphone - recording the tyranny that occurs on a regular basis, by claiming their Iphone can be used as a gun.... That's the dumbest **** I have eve heard..... I would love to hear the engineering behind that one - oh yeah it doesn't matter,
The truth is we have a bunch of kids with High School Deplomas telling us what our civil liberties are, when I bet half failed their civics exams but proclaim to be lawyers in the future so they can **** over some more "bad guys."
