    That pic is hard to look at. What a numbskull. That is supposed to be an example of 'carrying' inside a Staples Store?

    This is so stupid and yet he probably needs the attention to make himself feel good about himself. "Listen to what I did today at Staples"
    On a side thought, how do we know this isn't our opponents trying to force the hand of businesses to adopt these policies? Example, send someone into Staples open carrying a rifle to cause an uproar.
    This is a new self-focused generation. It's all about "me" generation. The death of common sense...so sad. :(

    I was thinking the same thing. A lot of this is staged by the antis for a photo opportunity.

    When the typical soccer mom looks at that picture she doesn't think 'nutcase' she thinks 'typical gun person that wants to carry a gun around and scare people.'

    you know, I fully agree that this is just a moronic thing to do. open carry of any sort got squashed in california due to this kind of stunts. even though it is permissible, it is not advisable.
    but we also do not want to start up the idea of "why isnt XX enough, who needs more than that?" that is the exact same thinking that leads to mag caps, bans, etc. in the mind of anti 2A people, it goes "who needs a rifle>handgun>handgun that can hold more than 7 rounds>semi auto handgun>any handgun>sling shot>dirty looks". the last thing we need to do is show them ANY sort of concurrence with their way of thinking.

    I've already switched to Tully's and Office Max. I never buy Levis (or Dockers) or Sara Lee.

    The article has Starbucks (Shultz) wrong.

    From the article............

    Where legal, open carry weapons (and legally concealed weapons) are not prohibited in Starbucks. Of course, did I really expect the anti-gun crowd to tell the truth about an issue like this?

    Aloha, Mark

    PS..........

    My letter to Starbucks went something like this:

    Dear Sir,

    I would like to thank you for helping me make up my mind, you see every Sunday after church service my wife and I would go to one of your stores and have 2 grande mocha's, hers a white mocha and mine a nonfat with no whip. I am respectfully no longer attending your establishments. On the bright side I now drive through a McDonalds and get 2 coffees and save myself about $7.20 and a lot of calories. Oh I sold my stock too.

    Thanks you

    Sara Lee has been on the anti gun, and actively supports things like the brady bunch. Stopped buying that crap 30 years ago.
