    Riddlemethis. Can you tell the difference between a person open carrying an AR-15 in a heavily trafficked area and a soon to be mass shooter carrying an AR-15?

    Glad to hear this, I always thought that Walmart poached from the small businesses anyways.
    Good to hear that there is a backlash, and it favors the small business

    See, I can engage in sophistry too.

    Does Walmart not pay attention? Did they not see what happened to Dicks? As speaking of Dicks

    I don't have a problem seeing the difference. And neither does a cop. If you can't see the difference then maybe you should own neither a car nor a gun.

    Hold up - are you seriously claiming that you know the sobriety of every driver you pass by? Really??

    Drivers driving drunk as well as drivers driving high make more mistakes per mile than those driving sober. You may get away with driving drunk a few times but sooner or later (even if you don't have an accident) a cop is going to use something else as a pretense to pull you over. You honestly believe that he spends all his time pulling everyone over with a bad turn signal? He doesn't. That just gives him probable cause. Or he pulls you over saying you did some real minor thing (that you really didn't do). But sooner or later, you are going to get bagged. It's not infallible but a drunk makes more mistakes per mile. '

    Now you have two people. Both armed with an AR walking into a crowded arena. How can you tell the difference between a gunnutter who is just eat up with stupidity and a mass shooter until the shooting starts? They walk the same, they look the same. You can stop both of them and they talk the same. Both will appear to be extremely stupid. One would have to be coming into an area in a densely packed crowd carrying an AR. Chances are, someone else that is CCW will draw down on both of them these days. Much like the Missouri incident with that moron just days after the Texas Walmart Shooting prancing into a Missouri Walmart with his AR so proudly displayed. Like the Missouri Police Lt. said, He's lucky to be alive. I don't think he's lucky to be alive. I think we are unlucky that he is still alive.

    And you not seeing the difference, you are either really stupid or just trolling.

    It’s not a ‘ban’ – just carry your gun concealed.

    Otherwise, Walmart isn’t going anywhere.

    Your post is sophistry – a false comparison fallacy to be exact.
