Open carry laws in some states provides more comfort for gun owners. But is Target's move an effort to protect everyone else?
David Montgomery July 8, 2014 at 10:08 pm
My biggest dilemma everyday is deciding which one to carry: my 9, 40 or 45.

David, my brother, please make sure you don't bring any of them into Target or Chipotle.=)

Well, making Target stores into "gun free zones" is having predictable results. Thugs nowRead More know that Target is a place to find plenty of unarmed victims, and customers are paying the price. http://www.wnd.com/2014/07/armed-robbers-shopping-for-victims-at-target/

Power lines above ground in the older neighborhoods with tree branches falling on them will alwaysRead More be the same scenario. You can't bury the lines as it costs too much so this will always be a problem.

Tons more kids get killed by cars hitting them than they do from burning up inside one. Why isn'tRead More anyone freaking over that? This happens, but it's not like there are a hundred thousand children cooking in cars every year.

Sorry, I never, EVER, left my child in my car. Never. I was and am a mom. My son is now 22 yo.Read More NO EXCUSE. I've never left a pet either, much less my child. Are these people sitting on their brains? Guess so.

Its a rough world out there and people forget. It looks like the Atlanta guy may have something moreRead More than meets the eye going on with his case. I certainly hope not but that's what the cops are hinting at. In the case of some of these people that go to bars or where ever and leave kids in cars they need to be dealt with harshly. However it seems like we have lost all ability in this country to make rational decisions case by case at every level of this government.

Well maintained turfgrass will intercept significantly more water, allowing it to soak in, thanRead More trees/forest land. The problem is more about hard-surfaces (roofs, streets, parking) than numbers of trees. Trees have other very significant values, turfgrass is more significant and important in protecting from runoff, intercepting and absorbing nutrients and other potential water pollutants, and protecting water quality in general.
