I'll play.

I went back to Lowes today. I had gone on Friday to check on appliances. This morning I went back with my beautiful 5-year-old daughter in tow and my SR1911 once again on my hip. (The 1911 may and/or may not be a product of a 35-47-11.1 lawsuit that advanced gun rights in Indiana. I'll let you wonder about it.)

At any rate, I spoke with a polite associate. He was very apologetic for being terribly busy, as when I arrived he was already on the phone trying to track down the status of a special order. I was very gracious.

Partway through, an announcement came over the loudspeaker for a meeting to take place in the appliance department of all associates who weren't currently with customers. It sounded to me like a normal Monday morning pep talk-Here's what's going on this week, keep an eye on such & such areas' stock levels because they're selling fast right now, etc.

As the associates (about 8-10 of them) trickled back, one youngish-looking guy stopped near me and commented apologetically that they were about to surround me for their morning meeting. I smiled and said "I don't mind, as long as you're friendly." He smiled back and agreed.

I also checked out at the register and walked through the gardening area to look at flowers with my daughter.

If you think that a clean, neatly dressed, polite guy in cargo shorts and a polo shirt, with his 5-year-old daughter, carrying a 1911, politely going about his business, is a set back for gun rights, then the problem is yours, not mine.


Oh yeah, my daughter was openly carrying a stuffed bunny the entire time. I guess we set back bunny rights as well.

holy crap! whether it's your daughter or not...that takes brass ball$ to walk around openly carrying where a 5yr old girl can see your gun. I'm surprised that she didn't take it from you.

Super gluing a bunny to their hands is the only way to keep a 5 yr old girl from disarming and then pistol whipping you. If they have a full set of teeth and wearing flip-flops instead of covered shoes, then you may still be in danger...

If I'm not working, I'm usually clad in a utility kilt.

I don't believe you. You need to post a picture on the internet of you brandishing your firearm inside of Lowes. Then we'll believe you...

Ok, I'll play.

apparently OP doesn't see the difference between OCing a pistol (something people do everyday all across this state and others for personal protection) and OCing long guns with the intent to either force people to agree with gun rights activists or ban guns from their establishments. How's that long gun OC working out for us again?
