You would think a place like Target would be sensitive to the fact Nutz/ Freaks seem to like to go postal in malls! A couple Mall cops being the only thing standing between me and a freak seems less than effective at minimizing their intent to kill innocent people.

They keep me out with the crowds, Baby Mommies and other rotten Brats hanging around; this type of garbage only puts another nail in the door I wont step through. If Lowes ever bows to MAG or Blumberg, I will be angry and will picket the damn store mercilessly!

So here we go again!

Gun owners across America are having to sign petitions and filling out polls in hopes that they can persuade corporate America to support the 2nd Amendment and not "Change" their policy on firearm carry.

A possible change in policy brought on by one man (Grisham) and his band of idiots parading around with long guns in hand.

Target and several others were fine the the Carry status quot until OCT came along and screwed it all up, Again. Now we are forced to put out his fires and try and convince Corporate America that we are not all a bunch of long gun toten idiots looking to scare Grandma to death.

Thanks OCT!

I have said it before and I will say it again, "nobody is stupid enough to continue down the path of OCT unless their goal is to ban firearms, not promote them."

interesting, i have NEVER seen a sign prohibiting CC at ANY target store i have gone to. in fact, i have only seen ONE such sign since i have been looking for them.

certain organizations have been using OC to shock and alarm customers at businesses that have NO SIGNS prohibiting CC, then turn around and claim they are "anti-gun"when the business reacts by saying "no thanks to OC."

this is about OC, not the right to have firearms in target. we already have the right to have a CC in target, well.....for the moment anyway.

why don't these organizations "target" businesses who display anti gun signs to start with? oh..i forgot...this isn't about rights, its about attention.

sorry, i'll opt out of this poll.

Yeah, me too. If they keep on beating this same dead horse, it's gonna come back to life and bite them (i.e. all of us) in the ass.

Give it a break.

Please don't kid yourself thinking that if OCT stopped, groups like MDA would stop as well. Even if everyone stopped open carrying in all private businesses, they would still be trying to get guns banned.

These groups want ALL guns out of America. They won't stop trying until they get their way. Nothing we do is going to stop them from trying.

Yes, groups like OCT and their legal activities give them some ammunition to fight us, but MDA would find something else if they didn't.

Their battle cry is "save the children." It's hard to fight against that when so many Americans refuse to think for themselves and refuse to take responsibility for their own protection.

QFT. You are correct on this one Franklin. If OCT was not on their radar, another group would be.

I myself am opting out on the Poll and the Petition, simply because it is target, a store I stopped going to after the day of the "Nurse in". No, it was not the nurse in that made me stop going, it was the harassment of the breastfeeding mother who inspired the event that soured me on that store.

They are already banned in my eyes.

Then force MDA to find another way, make it harder for them not easier. Handing them victory after victory after victory on a silver platter is no way to win a war. If it's OK with you for OCT to give MDA what they want so be it, it is NOT OK with me and I will not sit back and say, "Oh well nothing we can do about it".

Maybe you should do a little fact checking... their OC group had permission of the franchise store owner to hold their OC event. Chipolte corporate disagreed and issued their own policy.

WRT the poll and petitions, We're fighting Bloomberg and his BILLIONS for ALL gun rights.

They did not have permission from Target and that is what this thread is about.

...and we are fighting Grisham and his band of morons that are doing more harm then Bloomberg himself.

Wouldn't surprise me if Grisham is funded and very well compensated by Mr Bloomberg.
