Tory, I'm sorry you disagree with me on this matter, I actually am on your side in many of your posts. And no, I am not a cop, and I am surprised at you for lowering yourself to calling specific people here names like "pig". We can disagree with others here and be respectful and merely state our POV and convictions w/o name-calling.

What we post here should stand on its merits alone. Sometimes many will agree, sometimes others will not. And sometimes others just won't get it. Despite your different POV on this, I'll still support you when I agree with you. But in this case, I don't think 2A trumps private property owners' right to control over THEIR dirt. I would consider it exceedingly arrogant and presumptuous for a man to CCW on my property without MY express permission. I don't understand why you would accept it at your house.

Placing tin foil over all your doors and windows will block the RF carrier signals so they can't be received on board the silent black helicopters regularly circling your neighbourhood.

Also, I recommend an additional layer of tinfoil on the inside of your feed cap at all times to block your brainwaves from reaching the net of NSA satellites over your head at this very moment.

In fact, I'm quite surprised you're even using the Internet because everyone knows that all gun owner's ISPs automatically search for keywords like gun, explosion, attack or Chuck Norris.

We don't need YOU or anyone to tell us about property rights. We already know a home owner can keep us out of his home FOR ANY REASON.

A man's place of business isn't his castle. Businesses are not homes and are regulated differently than homes. For example:
WalMart is private property until it invites the public inside.
Once we're inside WalMart our rights don't have to end there. As long as we're in there shopping (looking to buy something for sale), we are actually in the public's domain. It brings no harm to the owner if we're armed. The private property of WalMart doesn't give WalMart an excuse to endanger us just because Walmart owns the land and the building.

Should Govts be allowed to deny us our rights if we're on Govt property ?

Guns, other weapons, and gun owners are discriminated EVERYWHERE. Our gun rights are in the negative to the 10th power. We need more gun laws (that protect gun owners) to balance the blatant rampant crime of disobeying the 2nd amendment.
Nope. Property rights (excluding homes and some businesses) are never an excuse to trample the 2nd amendment (this could keep us disarmed everywhere).
I completely disagree with you. Florida law protects gun owners in employee parking lots. I agree with Florida. WalMart and Starbucks allow guns inside if the State of the store allows it. I agree with that policy too.
I made it crystal clear. I couldn't have made anymore clear. Homeowners don't need a REASON to deny anyone entry into their home.

All people who remind us about property rights trumping gun rights are antigun.

Here is a quote from the anti gun left"Gun control advocates find hypocrisy in Starbucks policy on firearms, citing that its employees are not allowed to carry guns and question why there's such a discrepancy between workers and customers" They question what????? Do they think the customers should be able to go behind the counter and help themselves to a latte? These fucking people are so pathetic. The left truly are deranged
