    Knowing that this is NOT a "corporate policy", if I were to see one of these signs, I'd be having a private discussion with the store manager immediately (I know this person in the Costco's that I shop in most frequently). Failing that, I'd be contacting the corporate office about it and have all my gun-owning friends do the same. Almost guaranteed that the sign would have a "short lifespan" if you do that.

    Too many people take things personally these days, when most of the time what goes on has nothing to do with them personally. He had a lot of space for one box, and there was a long line of people behind us. If something as simple as moving "his" item causes a severe public temper tantrum, than he has issues he needs to address with a professional.

    I don't think I could have shot the guy, there was no good backstop available. There were people everywhere in short distance. He was going to get a chin jab.

    No... it just shows that they were out of the flintstones vitamins.
    The facts are indisputable. There is more data supporting the benefits of Conceal Carry than there is supporting global warming. If you choose ignorance, in light of all the evidence, in order to bolster your irrational fear of guns, you are a greater threat to society than any gun owner.

    I've been known to keep anti-bacterial hand sanitizer in my pockets, on my desk, and in my car. I don't like shaking hands and I wear latex gloves when taking out the trash or handling babies.

    I can understand getting upset when someone contaminates your monthly supply of immune booster like your husband did.

    I don't think I'd fight anyone over it if only because I don't think I could handle getting someone's sweat on me. :(

    I can't tell if some of you guys are joking or if you're crazy too

    I don't let petty little things put me in a bad mood. People that get all worked up about little things like this must have very simple lives. (or OCD)

    When I see people getting all worked up on the road because someone cut them off, I feel sorry for them. I think it's a sign of stupidity and immaturity. If someone blocks the right turning lane at a red light because they're going straight, I just chill. I don't throw my hands up in the air and get all worked up.
    That's right, this sweet baby was made in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Retails for about a hundred and nine, ninety five. It's got a walnut stock, cobalt blue steel, and a hair trigger. That's right. Shop smart. Shop S-Mart. You got that?
