I wish I could translate what you are trying to say here.As a gun enthusiast myself included gun owners are more than willing to safely show their firearms off in a more than safe matter - and on top of that tech gun safety...
Making up statistics is fun. 99% of gun owners who feel the need to carry their rifles into Target with them have erectile dysfunction. See that was fun.99.9% of gun crime is the result of stolen guns (at least in the lower 48) - yes accidents occur like every other job but the odds of a 20 ton piece of machinery is way falling on you is greater than being shot by a gun a legal gun owner is more obscure than being shot by a legal gun owned by a family member.
1. The bakery was in a place with an anti-discrimination law. Th law is Constitutional and so if they want to operate a public business they have to follow the law. It is that simple.
2. Prop 8 violates the rights of citizens. You can't pass a law that violates the Constitution even if a majority wants it.
3. Funny you are upset that the public should be able to pass a proposition to limit rights and then say something about the state taking your life away.
Go back and read the thread and try again.
Early voting in Georgia. On the 20th of October this old Goldwater conservative voted against both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton by casting my vote for Gary Johnson. Neither Trump or Clinton belong within a million miles of the Oval Office.
A bunch of guys walking into Target with rifles may be legal and Target may allow it, but scaring the crap out if a bunch of soccer moms is stupid beyond words. Those idiots simply confirmed every negative stereotype that the general public may have about gun owners. Morons.
Quo usque tandem abutere, Trump, patientia nostra?
in addition, i have no problem with Target banning firearms from their store ( in contrast to "their property"..that's a no-go.).. I most likely will not respect their policy, and in all likelihood, I'll ignore it without them ever knowing while I continue to carry concealed.... but i do believe they have the authority to set those types of policies.
I do find it interesting that folks automatically assume these guys are terrorists or up to no good though.... it's an interesting and far fetched assumption.... it's kinda like assuming every lottery ticket you buy is the big winner.. both assumptions ignore the numbers.
one would be infinitely more likely to be correct if they assumed these guys were simply carrying the rifles with no intention of ill will or harm.
If the law of the state is open carry, open carry it is.
