    I know that MEM and others have been practicing OC and raising awareness.

    I wonder if there is a log of businesses that are identified as OC friendly or hostile?

    Has there been much OC activity in NWLA? I heard about the infamous incident in the Ruston Walmart. I'd be up for an OC trip up here.

    I live in Shreveport but I do work near Ruston. I could do a lunchtime visit to the Ruston Walmart.

    I'm going to look at the DHS page because I'm not sure what you're talking about.

    I think we've found an agency worse than the BATFE.

    I think businesses could be put in the following categories:

    1. Officially accepts OC and CC, does not contribute to anti 2A causes

    2. Officially accepts only CC, does not contribute to anti 2A causes

    3. Unknown, does not contribute to anti 2A causes

    4. Officially hostile to all carry and/or contributes to anti 2A causes



    I say officially, because some rogue manager could be anti carry and go against official policy. Rather than boycotting the business, I think they should be dealth with personally by going over their head.

    Letter grades or some such could be applied. It would be nice to have a quick reference before shopping trips.

    I'm of the opinion, (not to sound like an ass or anything) but if they don't support OC, then they don't support the 2A.

    I started a link similar to this earlier in the year. It was linked to a general discussion forum which had an interactive map. The more people who use it the more site can be identified.

    I think the Bass Pro needs to be taken off the bad list. I can't figure out how to do that.

    Don't go just to stir sh*t up. If you have actual shopping to do and it's somewhere that you would go anyway then sure, OC while there. But don't just go to screw wtih the management. Just go about your regular chores/errands with your pistol and don't make any special trips.

    Top right, add Business.

    Do a search for Bass Pro in Denham.

    Rate it and add a comment then submit.

    Far as I can tell the program will add or subtract as you rate it.

    Yep.


    That’s astrawman and a pretty weak one at that.



    Anyway, It's not about promotion for me. It's about defending my self and my family. I'm not trying to educate the public; I'm trying to mind my business, while getting done what I need to get done, in the quickest, safest way possible. I have a family to support; Kids, wife, aging parents/grandparents. Parading around in protest begging for someone to make a move against me is NOT in my schedule of priorities.



    Either way when educating people, we should resort back to raising children. If your child doesn’t know something, do you scare him into submission? I would hope not. The public has been riddled with the entertainment saturation. A lot of them are straight scared of firearms. I don’t think shoving it down their throats is the best form of education here. It might work for some, but you can’t teach everyone like that, nor should we. Do you deny their right to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness? Who defines what those three are to each individual? It’s not you.



    Open your mind Sir! Brute Force is not always wise when it comes to War, especially when you DO NOT contain the numbers to support such a tactic.

    They seem to say that OC is fine, as long as nobody sees you doing it.

    If you bring OC to new persons and businesses, you're trying to "stir things up." Just OC where it won't cause anyone to confront something new, and you'll have done your highest duty of minding your place.

    Years ago, being a homosexual was a crime. Now, they can get married and have full health benefits, and if you speak out against one, you'll be charged with a "hate crime." That's taking an issue an winning with it, and they didn't do it by being meek and quiet.

    It seems many gun owners are just cowards.

    Yet another Straw man

    Do you even dare to go back through the last two pages and please quote me as saying either that or what Mark said? it will be a waste of yourtime, b/c I promise you it's not there.

    Carrying a firearm OPENLY for protection, and making plans to go to a specific Walmartstrictly for the purpose of TESTING THE WATERS, is not at all the same thing, and the latter is most definitely NOT what the 2A is about. This is your OWN agenda at work, and in my opinion, is a disgrace to what the founding fathers wrote the 2A for in the first place.

    Let's see what straw man you can pull out of this post.
