And you can thank Open Carry Texas once More: Target does not want ANY open carry in its stores

This is a complicated issue, but it boils down to a simple belief: Bringing firearms to Target creates an environment that is at odds with the family-friendly shopping and work experience we strive to create.

Notice that is not the Open Carry of Long Guns but ALL guns and it is not subject to Texas but nationwide.

And the Antis celebrate:

Moms Target OC

I am sure Moms Demand Action, Michael Bloomberg, the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence and the Brady Campaign would like to thank C.J. Grisham and his “followers” for helping them achieve what Active Shooters could not.

If it is stupid and it does NOT work, it is stupid!

    1. Miss Parks did not throw a tantrum when she was told to move to the back of the bus. She calmly and politely refused.

      What OCT is doing would be like if Miss Parks had assaulted the bus driver at gunpoint and demanded all Whites leave the bus.

  1. They don’t cite the clarification that target has made in this regard.
    “Molly Snyder, a Target spokeswoman, said the retailer will not post signs at its stores asking people not to bring guns inside. “It is not a ban,” she said. “There is no prohibition.””

    “”Target is trying to have it both ways,” Joseph Olson, the group’s founder, said in the statement. “They want to stop Bloomberg’s social media attacks, but they don’t want to alienate millions of Target customers who legally carry, so they call it a ‘request,’ one that carries no enforcement.””

  2. Every account I have seen show OCT to be calm and polite. I’ve seen nothing that resembles a tantrum. I’ve seen nothing that shows them to have threatened anyone- an action which would have assuredly resulted in arrests.
    What we call concealed carry has historically been considered the purview of the scoundrel and an indication of questionable moral charactor
    “I believe in the Second Amendment but…”
    I guess we know your “but”

    1. Almost everyone I know who carries does so concealed. It’s not the purview of the scoundrel or rogue, it’s the purview of those who wish to not garner unwanted attention, who want to quietly protect themselves and society.

      Concealed carry is far more effective at preventing crime than open carry. Because after one or two encounters with someone who carries concealed, criminals will realize that LITERALLY ANYBODY they see during their daily lives could be packing heat. Literally. Anybody.

      I don’t know how many people I see on a day-to-day basis are capable of suddenly producing a weapon from an unseen location about their person. My personal experience suggests it is somewhere between 30% and 99%.(Even I have a weapon which is at once carried openly and could be considered “concealed,” simply because nobody ever notices I have it until someone asks for a knife.)

      A much better example than Miss Parks would be Jackie Robinson. Remember him? First black baseball player in the newly-integrated league? Mr. Robinson was selected for his remarkable talent, yes, but there were actually players in the colored league who were significantly better at the game than him. Jackie Robinson was selected for his remarkably mellow attitude, because it was known that the first integrated baseball player would be forced to endure MONUMENTAL abuse, and it was his quiet tolerance that did far more than Rosa Parks’s stubborn action to help bring society’s acceptance of colored people into vogue.

      In fact, do you know why gingers are better accepted than other people of color?(fun fact: for a long time, gingers were not considered “real” whites, and have historically put up with just as much abuse as any colored person. We’re rare because we were once thought devil-posessed and red-haired babies were killed at birth.) It’s BECAUSE we don’t rock the boat, don’t take offense, and take a much more charismatic approach to abuse than the modern Black community.(THANKS, Al Sharpton, you race-baiting antagonistic pig)

      Also I’m calling BS on your claim that OCT doesn’t throw tantrums. That’s exactly what comparing yourselves to Rosa Parks is, and your behavior IS damaging relations with the anti-gun crowd just as badly as if you were going in there and shooting the place up.
