Comment of the Day: Rifles in Target
Our post about rifles being legally carriable in Minnesota Target stores has well over 300 comments and counting as of yesterday morning, many comparing the need to ostentatiously pack heat while browsing Mossimo racks to various forms of male enhancement.
Today's Comment of the Day, however, comes from Tammy Belka, who longs for a time when toting guns was about more than trying to make some sort of obscure political point.
Here's what she said:
Funny stuff, but take it from someone who was recently robbed (right outside a Target store, no less) -- given the choice, we're fine with people packing heat merely for show.
