    I he has the rifle slung over his shoulder, it is no big deal. Now if he comes in at the ready with his rifle pointed at you, it is a different matter. I remember as a kid I used to hop on my bike and ride into town with my .410. Walk into the Western Auto with the .410 in hand and buy some shells for it and go hunting.

    You could look around the school parking lot where I went to school and see several pickups with rifles and shotguns in their racks. All vehicles unlocked and no one cared or stole a darn thing. We never locked the house and when we went into town never locked the car or pickup. But society has changed way too much, it is sick. But instead of trying to get to the root of the problem, find out what it is, the idea is to take guns away from hard working, honest people. That makes government as sick as our society has become.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    what it shows is just how far you people will go to push the envelope of your "rights" over the "rights" of others--
    oh, and good with the lame anti-gunner meme --
    You have no right not to see a person carrying/holding a gun. Do you feel compelled to shoot police officers, security guards or hunters? If so then you are a threat.

    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 ?
    no, not every store owner... every PERSON should know .... and yes, I put the onus on every individual to be educated on their rights and the rights of others.... I do not arbitrarily vacate them of their responsibilities as citizens.

    so now you want everyone to live in your vigilant world--no thanks.


    stop talking out of your ass and i'll stop pointing out that you're talking out of your ass.... it's a simple concept.
    so you continue your moronic posting accusing me of talking out of my ass--
    how 'bout you stop trying to ram your asinine interpretation of the 2A up America's ass--

    I walk into 99Percenter's store wearing a GI and my black belt. He tries to shoot me because he thinks I might Bruce Lee him. better analogy

    1.How is this dude carrying this weapon into the store?

    2.Why does it have to be an assault rifle? Is the store clerk going to feel any safer if someone walks into store with a semi-automatic rifle that has the same magazine capacity and fires the same round as this so called assault rifle?
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
