Tell Target, No Open Carry in Texas - By Male OR Female Shoppers


Image 88

Wasn't it enough when a loaded gun was found in a Tar-ghay toy aisle earlier this month?

The Open Carry people are just arming up for their everyday activities now in Texass, apparently they feel the police, sheriffs and even their famed Rangers aren't keeping us 'safe' enough.

Judas Priest. Gun-fondling is increasingly a two-gender problem.

One more thing to credit half Governor Sarah Palin with, the bloodthirsty, warmongering, gun-toting, wolf-annihilating, bullet bonkers Teabagger Queen.


I can just hear Laffy mimicking her now: "You need us protectors of the inn-o-cent in your stores, at your res-tau-rants, at your school func-tions …  Amer-i-ca just isn't safe anymore under these hippie commie  pinko Kenyan liberals!"

Now, Texas women are slinging long guns over their backs instead of (or along with) their diaper bags and cross-body soft beer coolers, apparently … a movement not being enjoyed by Moms Demand Action. Nor the good folks over at Mother Jones.

Moms Demand Action began highlighting the images from the Corpus Christi store on social media on Thursday, again urging Target to take action. The company has acknowledged criticisms about the demonstrations, but to date has only said that it complies with all applicable laws; a spokesperson confirmed to me last weekend that the company has no policy specifically regarding firearms in its stores, and declined to say whether the company was considering one.

But there are indications that Target may now be doing so. On Thursday, Christopher Gavigan, the CEO of The Honest Company, which just began selling its line of eco-friendly family products in Target stores, tweeted "we are very much in an active dialogue to find a solution" on the issue.

Do these women think a homicidal dust-up is going to occur over a half-price Ralph Lauren tumbler set in Housewares? Or that other Target shoppers will just know the gun-fondling members of the über-armed Open Carry posse members aren't domestic terrorists, and not shoot back or go home with PTSD?!?

It's time to let Target know we would just as soon NOT shop alongside rifle-wielding Second Amendment fanatics. There must be plenty of Walmart stores in Texas for the gun-fetishist population to call home.


Picture 27

What I cannot imagine:  walking down the housewares aisle in Target, looking for a cherry pitter or something, and saying 'excuse me' to some dame wearing a loaded rifle when I bump into her barrel while bending over to check a sale price. First instinct would be to disable the gun-fondler by hitting her over the head with the nearest Dutch oven.

White Supremacy and the Bundy Tea Party Terrorize the Vegas Strip



The two Metro cops having a working guy's lunch at CiCi's on the Vegas strip couldn't have seen it coming.

LVMPD Officer Igor Soldo, 31, was catching a refill at the self-serve soda machine when an armed female 'in line' behind him put a bullet in his brain. She then turned to his seated colleague, Officer Alyn Beck, 41, and mortally wounded him with the remaining rounds before sprinting with her partner to a nearby Walmart to continue the terror.

According to The Las Vegas Review Journal, the real-life Criminal Minds level-of-sick shooting rampage had just begun. Domestic terrorism has many faces of hate.

Crossing the swastika-wearing modern KKK with the Obama Era Tea Party gave birth to the expected monster.

The shooters then stripped the officers of their weapons and ammunition and badges, according to a law enforcement official with knowledge of the investigation. They then covered the officers with something that featured the Gadsden flag, a yellow banner with a coiled snake above the words, “Don’t tread on Me.”

please tread on me
An early angle of truly deeply creepy is that - allegedly - cough  - the shooter, Jared Miller,  was part of the Cliven Bundy Militia and Tea Party Extravaganza we all enjoyed so much earlier this season.  That explained a LOT.

Repercussions much?

The man told Monroe [a neighbor of the couple] he had been kicked off Cliven Bundy’s ranch 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas while people from throughout the U.S. gathered there in protest of a Bureau of Land Management roundup of Bundy’s cattle.” Jessica Anderson, 27, said. She lived next door.

Rick's Café Moment, right?  Warning after liberal warning ensued after the Strap On Militia was encouraged to leave the Bundy Ranch, which apparently only served to incite the deepest levels of hate-crazed gun-nuttery.

After they finished off the two cops at CiCi's Pizza, the couple fled to a nearby Walmart where another innocent woman was summarily executed.  Whether they were going for Walmart's well-stocked munitions depot we may find out with the remaining nauseating details.

The shooters were a married couple thought to be in their late 20s who were new to the Las Vegas Valley, according to a law enforcement official close to the investigation. Police are looking into their links to the white supremacy movement and found swastika symbols during their initial investigation.

In a Monday press conference, local officials revealed that Miller had deeply resented being kicked off the Bundy Ranch Lipton Brigade Militia because he had a criminal record.

Background checks???!!!

Professor Eric Michael  Dyson filled in superbly for Ed over at MSNBC earlier tonight and this footage gets to the heart of the matter.


These good guys with guns were killed by bad guys with guns they never should have been allowed to put their violent hands on. Answer to that, NRA.
