Joe the Plumber (Bob the Builder's less intelligent cousin) tells the father of one of the USCB shooting victims “Your dead kids don’t trump my Constitutional rights.”

Joe almost makes me ashamed of having been born in the same state.

Don't forget Chipotle.

Quote
Chipotle Mexican Grill may have thought it was protecting potentially frightened customers when it urged people to leave their guns at home. But not so fast.

It’s clear to me that Chipotle should have known better. It was playing with fire by infringing on the Second Amendment and bowing to public pressure from a social media campaign. The ban was bound to give pro-gun supporters indigestion. Even though the company claimed the move was voluntary, that's not how it played among gun enthusiasts who believe their rights are under siege. This smells like a step toward a total ban and activists want to use their firepower to make sure it goes no further.

Oh, FFS.   Roll Eyes

Yes, it's your constitutionally protected right (discussion on whether that should continue to be a neverending, all-exclusive right will be tabled for another time), but what the fuck happened to common sense?  With the number of nutjobs walking into public places and randomly opening fire, you don't see how this might possibly cause people to have a problem with it?  I don't know your intent.  I don't know whether you're high, drunk, crazy, responsible with that gun, etc., so yes, I will quickly be moving me and mine away from you stupid assholes as quickly as possible.

Bunch of attention whoring dipshits, all of 'em.

You're not.

Quote from: Forbes
Imagine this: you’re working your shift at Jack in the Box, serving up chicken nuggets and shakes behind the counter, when a group of men carrying assault rifles walks in. What do you do?

In Fort Worth, Texas last week, employees took to the fast food outlet’s freezer, hiding among the frozen burger patties until squad cars arrived at the scene.

“Officers spoke with Jack in the Box employees who reported that they feared for their lives and believed they were being robbed,” said the Fort Worth Police Department in a statement.

“They locked themselves inside a freezer for protection out of fear the rifle-carrying men would rob them.”

But these men weren’t robbers. They were demonstrators from a branch of pro-gun group Open Carry Texas, who told local media that they entered Jack in the Box armed in a display of their constitutional rights.

They actually started using freedom of information act to get the 911 audio of people who called and publish it to their website so people could harass them.  So they are actively trying to intimidate people into not calling 911.

The restaurants, at least in Texas, still have the right to tell you to go pound, and have the force of law behind them to have you cited for criminal trespass if you are made aware of the restrictions.  The funny thing to me is that the statute number denoting the requirements for forbidding licensed concealed carry entry is 30.06.

Just as with the 1st Amendment, no one owes you a venue, especially not a privately owned business.  Whereas the exploration of gun rights as the government regulation is concerned is an ever-shifting array of laws and court decisions, the rights of property owners is less so.  Being a firearm carrier is not a protected status in the manner that race or gender is, so, even if a business is a provider of public accommodations, they are within their rights to refuse you service, tell you to go pound, and call the cops to have you cited and removed for criminal trespass.

I gave up on the concept of banning guns ages ago.  But I support reasonable applications of gun control.  One of the more reasonable applications would be allowing a business to tell you NOT to bring firearms into their establishment.   

And before it comes up, that's NOT the same as allowing a business owner to refuse service to gays, blacks or jews.  Guns you can leave in the car.  Your color or sexual preference can't be.

All I know is that if I walk into a restaurant and see a gun, I'm turning around and walking out.

This seems like screaming fire in a crowded theater.  Ammendments only extend so far.

Guys come in en masse with weaponry displayed, how TF do they think people are going to respond?  And then say '2nd ammendment?'  Forget that. They're causing a panic.  At a minimum they should be rung up on disturbing the peace and fined to cover the cost of the police's time.

I thought this was standard application of private property everywhere. I see those "no firearms allowed" signs all the time in AZ. And AZ is about as pro-gun a state as you can get.

Is it the employees who retreated to a secure location-

That's possible.  Then my question would be, "Who are the idiots on the anti-open carry side of the issue?"  There must be some, or the "both sides" part of his statement wouldn't apply.

I've lived my whole life without immediate access to a semi-automatic rifle, and somehow I've been able to do everything from ordering fast food to renewing my driver's license to confronting a snide shop clerk without ever needing to demonstrate my preparedness to project lethal force against whoever stood in my way.  Perhaps that's why I only perceive idiots on one side of this particular issue.

In areas like mine, DFW, there are plenty of plots of farm and ranch land inside an overall perimeter that anyone would be ill suited to define as "rural".  And yet there are still issues in and around this urban area with things such as feral hogs and other such pests, including predatory animals.  So for someone involved in management of open land, the ability to carry a weapon for their use without running afoul of 30 jurisdictions for having a rifle on him when he makes a trip across town to the local Bass Pro Shops is a reasonable expectation.

Yup.  I grew up on a horse farm in Ohio.  We occasionally had issues with wild dogs that would attack the horses if they were left out in the corral at night.  My father owned a .22 that he would use to scare them off.  

...of course, he got rid of the gun shortly after he accidentally shot our truck.  My father was a horrible shot.

No, my issue with guns is not with those who view them as tools, or as a means of home defense; but those who view them purely as an expression of political freedom.  The underlying message in that expression (to me) comes across as "I want to be able to shoot someone I don't agree with".   Of course there are exceptions to that rule...there always are.  But by and large, the majority of people I encounter who scream about their second amendment rights just come across as itching to be able to use that gun on someone.

As with so many other issues, it's the people on the fringes that help determine the middle ground.  If one side were foaming at the mouth while the other were reasonable, the ravening hordes would likely pull things too far to one side.

So while I have little love lost for those taking up the extreme positions on either side of this or any other issue, it's a co-dependent, balancing relationship.  I wish there were a middle ground where the issues could be explored reasonably, but that doesn't put money in people's accounts, and marking your opponent as a society-destroying enemy keeps the money flowing much better than a reasoned debate. 

What a piece of work is man.

Who do you see here -- or *anywhere* -- that is arguing otherwise?  Two of the articles you linked indicate the exact opposite, reporting tens of thousands of dollars in grant money to licensed hunters willing to help cull the feral hog population.  The count in Feburary 2012 was over twelve thousand feral hogs dead.  

Unless your local CBS affiliate has really buried the lead about porcine refugees seeking asylum inside the nearest fast food joints, I'm having trouble seeing the connection between, "I want to secure my firearm when I go out hunting and no one objects to it," and "I also want to wield my gun inside Starbucks because an armed society is a polite society."

I agree that getting a bunch of people strapped with long irons to stroll into a local food establishment is stupid, provocative, and likely could be construed as criminal in some manner. 

But as I said, it's the wingnuts on either fringe that allow us to keep some happy medium.  Unfortunately, I am of the belief that we need provocative actions from the NRA crowd to offset rampant overreach from the ban-em-all crowd.  I wish it weren't the case.

And who composes the board of directors of the NRA? The owners of all the major gun manufacturers. Why does the NRA want what it wants? Because hunting is a slowly dying sport and the gun manufacturers want to stay in business. Hence, all the crap about 2nd amendment rights and jackbooted gub'ment thugs coming for your guns. This nonsense didn't exist exist twenty years ago. Why does it exist now? To sell guns to people who would never hunt.

While the marine should have avoided cursing them out when first confronted, he has a valid point about wearing rifles around in public areas like they were jewelry.  It does intimidate people and I truly believe that's the primary reason they're doing so.  If you want to insinuate you'll shoot people who don't agree with you, you've already lost your argument.

The Marine may have passed his INT check to know he was in the right, but he sure failed his WIS check in confronting an armed group.

The AR-15 is the barbie doll of the adult male shooter.  Have you seen how many customization items that people make for those things?

Yep, Legoesque customization. I want one myself, but it would stay at home or go to the gun range with me, not to the local burrito shack...
