The is no extra charge though.

Personally, I prefer to let some obtain/retain their own level.

We are all familiar with the analogy of wrestling with a pig.

LOL It has been a long time since schoolyard attacks, and learning "Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me." Equating disparaging epithets with hate is the tool of PC political correctness.
Antis could hate you but you would never know it until they verbalize their hate.....or, they could shoot you then you would know.

Au contraire - non verbal actions (facial expression, body language, tone of voice) speak volumes - just like here :)

So no one has drawn fire like I recently have. Hmm.

At one time or another some of us have drawn fire equal to, greater, or lesser than what you describe.

A lot of us do not rise to the bait being presented. And a lot of us consider the source and go on about our day secure in the knowlege that there are petty, angry people out there who we really don't care about.

Do you know the story of the Scotsman attending his first baseball game? "Walk proudly, me boy!"

stay safe.

In the past few days, I've been told that I am:
extremist, domestic terrorist, redneck, ammosexual, disgusting, fat idiot, insecure, compensating for lacking in male sex organs, and many more, because I shopped at Target to express my support for them, while OCing.

Good Lord man, where do you live that those sort of comments are directed at someone carrying a sidearm?

I think I may have been called something in August 2009 at a McDonald's. That incident was the only one I have ever had from a civilian in the entire 19 years that I have been carrying a firearm (the last seven of which, openly). And that man claimed he was a retired police officer however judging by his accent, he was definitely not a native Virginian. More like someone from up in the northeast.

SouthernBoy, I posted a photo of myself and thanked Target for not giving in to moms demand action, they reposted it, kinda made me their whipping boy. You can read about it here: https://m.facebook.com/hashtag/offtarget

Any way to get to the photo/article without logging into Facebook? (for those of us who don't Face the Book?)

Thx...

Thanks for sharing

Liberty (LOD) ...

Nice. Even a HashTag (which seems to be a fashion now).

Who uttered or created "Ammosexual" .. how interesting.

Oh ... I'm sorry I asked:

Meet The Dangerous Ammosexuals and Gun-Fetishists That Invaded Chipotle With Their Blessing

Bill Maher goes after Open Carry "ammosexuals"
Guns aren't just a tool of last resort. They're awesome. That's why people stroke them. And name them, and take pictures with them. You guys aren't just firearm enthusiasts — you're ammosexuals.

And before you try and deny you have some sort of unnatural romantic relationship with your gun, consider this. You're taking it out to dinner! (hysterical audience laughter) Because it completes you. Get a room.

Oh dear. :uhoh:
