Here's an excerpt from article written by an Iowa columnist who freaks out after staring at man’s bulge:
There’s a mantra quickly repeating in my head: “Please have a badge. Please have a badge. Please have a badge.” It’s a steady heartbeat as I begin a conversation with a shop clerk and reposition myself so I can peer over her shoulder.
I’ve already seen the bulge in his jacket, and it’s clear from the size and shape that he has a holstered gun. Now my eyes are quickly scanning, hoping to find a law enforcement badge clipped to his belt.
I’m in a local bookstore and there’s a sticker near the door asking patrons not to carry weapons on the premises. My two children scurried off the moment we entered, each in search of their own treasures.

There was a comment from a guy (that subsequently disappeared for some reason) who claims he was the one with the bulge. He said that it was a halter monitor that measures arrhythmia for his cardiologist. Either way, from irrational rants like above, to tackling legal carriers, to "swatting" a guy in Walmart with a toy gun (who was subsequently killed by police)... we are starting to see more of these hysterical paranoid episodes from the crazed anti-gun community.
If I remember correctly, in Washington, signage isn't law. Is this different from state to state? My understanding was that here, if I see a sign like that, I can still go in BUT if they ask me to leave because of it, I have to comply otherwise I can be charged with trespassing.
Walmart after midnight is one of the few places I choose to open carry hah.Rapier1772 wrote:Actually, there is one - 'walmart'. Lack of intelligence of this magnitude is why I hate going there, especially before midnight.Cyberfly wrote:There are no words...
