Default Obviously, I'm not being clear.

So, because "someone" does something wrong, we all must be punished. Is that really what you are saying?

Does NO ONE see the equivalent statement in my extreme example of murder? Because "someone" is a murderer, we all must be punished.

How about this: Take the person who is "sweeping everyone", escort them to the door, and say "We do not want your business. You are hereby banned from entering our store."

I think the same reason is true here. I can see their point. They don't know me from Adam's house cat, and they don't want me handling a loaded gun in their presence. I feel much the same way around strangers with guns.

I did have something funny happen a while back in an Orlando Gander Mountain. I wanted some rubber grips for my carry 1911 since the checkering on the factory grips was pretty sharp. I figured a 1911 is a 1911, and even if there is a difference they should have a Sig 1911 in their case, so I carried it in concealed. I never suspected that they might want to see the gun.

When the clerk asked if I had it with me I answered yes, but I couldn't show it to him since it was my carry weapon and it was loaded. He asked me if I could unload it without shooting any of the customers. I just offered to go out to the car to do it and come back in, but he insisted it was okay. I looked around and decided on a safe direction, then asked him if there was an office or anything that might be occupied behind that wall. He said no, so I unloaded the weapon and handed it to him.

The really funny part is that once we got my grips and made sure they fit, he offered to let me go into into an empty hallway so I could reload and holster the weapon. He didn't want me to leave without a loaded sidearm.

That's not even close to accurate. My carry gun is loaded and on my hip in condition one. Any guns that are expected to be handled are unloaded and verified as such at the entrance.

Your second amendment rights don't supersede my right to a safe environment in which to conduct business. Personally, I'd love to see a store owner with the marbles to throw anyone observed in violation of fundamental gun safety rules out on their a$$ but you and I both know that we're not going to see that happen anytime soon. Next time you go to a gun show, look around and observe the lack of gun safety. Remember, those are gun enthusiasts. The old lady at the gun shop counter wondering how much she can get for the Luger her recently departed husband brought home as a war trophy has never shot a gun before and she has no idea that it spent the last 50+ years in the nightstand loaded with one in the chamber.
