  1. Those businesses are private property. If they want to prohibit ANYONE from bringing a firearm into the business, it's their choice. I fail to see how anyone could have a problem with a private business exercising their right to regulate their customer's activities on their private property.

  2. Fuk these stores. They are traitors !! They need to be SHUT DOWN AND REMOVED FROM OUR COUNTRY.. PROTEST THESE COMPANIES. Get Woke..Go Broke

  3. I wouldn’t want to be caught in those stores during a shooting. And if I did, I hope there is a good guy in there locked and loaded ready to protect the innocence at anytime anywhere. Everyone knows criminals sure as hell don’t follow rules, duh. And on a different note- CVS is the worst and lost my business long ago when they decided to dictate people’s health and smoking, yet still prescribe opioids through their pharmacy.

  4. It's against the law to mishandle top secret special access program info yet Hillary Clinton runs free. The Rule Of Law is no longer enforced.

  5. "Non confrontational approach" to people open carrying. Right. Calling the cops and enforcing a nationwide ban is non confrontational.

  6. I don't open carry but I agree they have the right to conduct business how they see fit. I have the right to drive by their store and go to their competitors.
