    You sure do go on a lot about how much you love NY.

    I'm with you. I did the same as you did. I also used to go to Sprouts until they posted a 30.06 sign. I talked with the manager and he said he didn't want my business if I carried a weapon even concealed.

    My local Sprouts manager had no personal problem with me carrying. However, according to him the 30.06 signs were absolutely mandated by the higher-ups and there was nothing he could do about it. I haven't been back. Partially, though, that's because I have plenty of alternatives. I don't hold it against anyone who patronizes anti-gun businesses when the non-posted alternative requires a detour that will waste an hour of their day.

    sounds like he gave you effective consent.

    No, it was a longer conversation than that. He made it clear that his position was in line with the company. He wasn't going to risk his job by giving me consent. He just wished the company policy was different.

    Kaepernick’s a cop hating, racist, commie loving dirt bag. He and Nike can go to Hell as far as I’m concerned

    Are you OK with a 10 year old making your shoes in a sweat shop so Phil Knight can be a billioniare?

    Really, cause Kapernacke says he knees in protest. If you want to be respectful, stand, take hat off, and put hand over heart and STFU.

    Exactly what we are doing. Speaking out against you.

    I am against the government violating citizen's rights on a regular basis, and against Nike for using children in sweat shops. Sorry to see you are not with me on that one.​

    I am with you on sweatshops. That is a valid point - but I guess I thought this was about boycotts for companies being anti-2a and not human rights abuses. It seemed like people were boycotting for supporting Kaep, and not some anti-2a thing. I believe that these folks are poorly informed about the issue and the protest - as is their right to be. I don't personally own anything Nike and I don't think I have for many years. When you can buy equivalent non-branded goods for half the price, I'm not going to pay up just to wear The Swoop.

    For what it's worth - I agree with Kaep that the police in the country have gone way, way, way beyond what is acceptable. Until they start (actually) policing themselves, stop shooting unarmed people or law abiding citizens in their own homes, start wearing body cameras all the time to enforce accountability, and allow investigators outside the police/DA circle to investigate them, you won't find me trusting any cops.

    Granted... to do the job we demand of them, they probably need to be paid a hell of a lot more than they currently are - and most of our large cities have squandered their ability to employ quality police officers.
