America's willingness to be cowed by gun-toting men with small penises never ceases to amaze. This time it's Target. As the L.A. Times reports, "Sidestepping calls for a ban on carrying firearms in its stores, Target Corp is asking shoppers to leave guns at home."
Now, of all the stores in the world, you'd think a store called Target would the the one place where guns would be welcomed. But, no. Seems a lot of Target shoppers -- Moms with kids, little old ladies in tennis shoes -- find the sight of some A-hole with a small penis carrying a ginormous rifle slung over his shoulder while walking down the home decor aisle highly disturbing. And the group, "Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America," have been pressuring Target (and other retail establishments) to ban open-carry, even in states where "open carry" is perfectly legal."
Target has refused to ban guns in its store. Instead, it's "asking." And said on its blog that "it would follow local laws allowing unconcealed firearms in stores, but 'starting today we will also respectfully request that guests not bring firearms to Target -- even in communities where it is permitted by law.'"
Respectively request? Ask? Really? Pretty please? That's odd. Target is a privately owned company, its stores are on private property. Have corporations now suddenly lost all rights over their own property? Like stores can no longer post a sign saying," No shirt, no shoes, carrying a gun -- No service?"
Well, I say, post the damned sign. Then have armed security confront the open-carry idiot and hope a gun-battle ensues, complete with huge, screaming headlines: Bullseye! Massive Shootout at Target! Followed by a hell of a lawsuit pitting gun rights against private property rights. A lawyer's dream.
See how crazy this country's gotten? A-holes and "respectfully requesting" cowardly weasels running the joint. And not a shred of sense anywhere.
