    Doers every American store-owner have the onus on him to know what you think your "rights" are when you open-carry a rifle into his store ?
    The laws pertaining to businesses and guns is different in every state....and vary greatly. It is indeed the responsibility of the business owner to know the laws that pertain to guns & businesse in his state, esp. if he or or she is concerned about it. In some states, ignoring the signage only constitutes trespassing, in others it carries the force of law for a felony. In others that signage must use explicit, exact legal wording provided by the state, and/or be posted in specific places and heights near entrances.

    Please see my signature, in blue, for the answer to that.

    You seem to be asking other people to be accommodating you and your feelings, rather than taking personal responsibility for their own safety.

    Another extreme gift from those bastardizing the 2A .
    As business owner, it's ALWAYS your responsibility to provide good service and a positive environment for customers.

    So you see someone open carrying, then you address them, "hey, how's it going today? What are you looking for? That's a nice AK, got one myself.....yada yada yada."

    YOu would do it for lots of other questionable customers, wouldnt you? "Hey, leave the skate board outside or carry it in here...what is that model? My kid rides over at the park on Main St...do you know him? Tod Smith....yada yada yada."

    How so? Despite purpose, cars contribute to alot more deaths.

    The fact that many are unintentional does not make me feel more safe around them. But they are indeed used as weapon too.

    And yet feels unrealistically safe when many more people carry concealed in the store?

    If I thought I 'needed' a gun, I wouldnt go there, period.

    I carry a firearm the way I carry a cell phone...because you never know when you will need it.

    Looks like we're heading back to Dodge City.
    If that is their plan, they are criminals planning a crime, not citizens open carrying. Those are 2 very different things.

    But few criminals telegraph their intentions...they prefer the safety of ambush and surprise. The 2 do not look the same...and people have provided details and images here for you already.

    I say, anyone who carries his rifle into a store needs to be shot just on general principles.

    You drive on the roads with them every day, dont you? So I agree with you, I DONT trust their judgement and consider myself at risk everytime I drive or walk on the street. It's an assumed risk, isnt it? I dont see anyone saying they dont drive or limit their driving because of it.

    I actually do. I do not just jump back in the car to get the milk I forgot. I would NEVER casually allow my kid in other people's cars without a better knowlege of those people. I fear every day the idiot texting.

    We accept those risks almost without question...but not guns. It's matter of perception, not reality.
