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.
