    and?

    I can show you pics of many more than 3 people open carrying rifles...who didn't shoot or kill anyone... or even commit a crime
    why do you judge everyone on the actions of a few crazies?

    I don't worry about liberal store owners... they aren't armed and they are no threat to me.
    their lil " no guns allowed" signs are cute though...I carry my firearms right by them without anyone being the wiser.
    i know, i know. Just saw a chance to take a stab at several thousand forum trolls with a single sentence. That's all I meant by that liberals comment.

    That is presuming that the weapon is either shouldered (if a long gun) or holstered (if a hand gun). Now if someone comes in holding a handgun, or holding a rifle at the ready, then they are putting forth a threatening demeanor, and if the establishment's owner then draws a weapon, demands the customer put the weapon away and he doesn't, then that very well could be seen as a case of self-defense.
    exactly.


    I think the OP wants you to say it's ok to shoot the guy though.... he isn't getting much validation so far, but that's what he wants.

    So we no longer want these weapons for home defense, a "not-so-bad" excuse.
    And we no longer want these assault weapons to go to the gun range--also "not-so-bad" as society moves further to the wrong wing.
    Yes now we need to walk around with assault weapons because we're scared--or is it something else ??

    How long does it take for you to go from concealed-carry to gun in hand if you wanted to carry into the store?

    right now, it's just about pissing off anti-gunners and their constant attacks on our rights....it's a political statement being made.... I highly doubt we'll be seeing people start to carry rifles on their backs as the "norm".
