If someone is prepared to slaughter 10, 20 or more innocent civilians shopping in a drug store, do you think they are inclined to respect the “wishes” of a retail outlet that doesn’t want firearms in its establishment? CVS and Walgreens think so. CVS and Walgreens joined the woke corporation crowd of Walmart and Kroger and announce they request customers do not bring firearms into their stores. “We support the efforts of other individuals and groups working to prevent gun violence, and continually review our policies and procedures to ensure our stores remain a safe environment,” CVS said in its statement. “We join a growing chorus of

Okay, then. I’ll just carry concealed, like I always have.

All this B.S. is about is the corporations trying to legally cover their a@#$% from being sued when a shooting is carried out on their property. The details do not matter in a lawsuit. Your life doesn't matter to them enough to even provide armed security in their stores in exchange for their B.S. policy. So, each of us will have to decide whether or not to continue to patronize these places.

So what? Private policy. They don't want firearms in their establishment. Don't like it, don't patronize them...then it's a win-win, isn't it?

I'm sure that good, law-abiding people will respect their request, or shop elsewhere, but what about criminals? When some crazy person, who doesn't care what corporate HQ says, decides to shoot up a store, what will corporate management say? I'm sure they will issue all the right condolences and sorrow for the victims, and call for gun control!

Are these companies politely asking crazed shooters and mass murderers to kindly leave their guns outside? After all, it’s so unfair to the other shoppers who have no way to defend themselves. There is no limit to the capacity for stupidity.

Wouldn't have been more even handed if they just prohibited mass shootings in their stores? The sign on the front door could be a typical red circle around silhouettes of running people with a gun held on them and a line through it.

The problem is this "get woke" strategy is contagious and once the intellectual lightweights in Hollywood give their fanatical, hysterical female pink hat zombies their marching orders, they mindlessly harangue every retailer into making these irresponsible policies. And from what I read CVS and Walgreens have eliminated ALL carry in their stores. So no open or CC.

In Texas, if they really mean this, have the cajones to put up 20.06 and 20.07 posters. That would make it illegal to carry weapons in their stores. But I bet they are just "all talk" to try to appease the rabid fascist gun grabbers, but won't actually ban guns in their stores until the emotional wave passes and people go back to their normal lives!!!

It may be an opening salvo by gun controllers, BUT, the stores are asking to not 'open carry'....nothing was said about concealed carry...get your facts straight before you have a heart attack...and it turns me off to see some dimwit with a rifle slung over his shoulder in a store...there is no need for that, 'just because I can'..... Open carry is a bit 'in your face' and could potentially 'turn off' some people.... That being said, I always carry concealed....

I thought they were just asking us to not open carry. Am I missing something? Anyway, concealed means nobody knows. If I am "outed" at one of these places I will have two items on my to-do list. The first is to make sure I conceal better in the future. The second is to not go into that store again. And my money won't go in their either.

Everyone else seems to be drawing the line at no open carry but cc is fine. In open carry states (I do not live in one so I do not know), is it legal to make the distinction?

Some years back I went to a Walgreen's near Tiger Woods former home because I had to find a prescribed drug no one seemed to have. A guy came in looking around that gave me the creeps. I left, but soon realized I left my insurance card there. By the time I got back to the store, yellow tape was up because he robbed the store. Maybe more should carry.

Presidential candidate and spiritual guru Marianne Williamson was caught on a hot mic asking why conservatives treat her better than her fellow liberals do, but she claimed she was misquoted in a key part of it. While still on camera after an interview with Eric Bolling on America This Week, Williamson seemed to suggest there's a cultural problem with the left that is evident in their mistreatment of her. She seemed to say she understands why many see the left as "godless," but she now denies that’s what she said.

"I've never engaged in hateful rhetoric against you or your family, and I never will, but your offering our military assets to the dictator of Saudi Arabia to use as he sees fit is a betrayal of my brother and sisters in uniform who are ready to give our lives for our country, not for the Islamist dictator of Saudi Arabia," the Hawaii Democrat said in a video posted to Twitter on Monday.

The leader of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints reaffirmed Tuesday the religion’s opposition to gay marriage, saying God’s law dictates that marriage is restricted to unions between a man and a woman. Church president Russell M. Nelson also said during a speech to students at the church-owned Brigham Young University that the religion’s love for everyone regardless of sexual orientation led to the repeal earlier this year of a 2015 policy that banned baptisms for children of parents in same-sex relationships and labeled gay couples as sinners eligible for expulsion. Nelson said love also motivated the original policy as he and other leaders attempted to prevent friction between

Government watchdog Judicial Watch has issued a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against the Department of Justice in order to obtain documents and information about Felix Sater. Sater was working inside the Trump Organization in 2016 on behalf of the FBI and reportedly pushed the Trump Moscow project. That Moscow project was often cited as "proof" by Democrats and media that President Trump had business dealings with the Russians. According to a release, Judicial Watch is "seeking all records of communications, including FBI 302 interview reports and offer agreements between former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s office and Felix Sater."

The "Church of Climate Change" demands that Western nations impose restrictions on industrial CO2 emissions, encouraging them to squander billions on unreliable "green" technologies and renewable sources of energy. They continue to ignore the one policy that has significantly increased atmospheric CO2 levels in the last few decades, generating hundreds of millions of metric tons of the stuff annually: mass third-world immigration (see Kolankiewicz and Camarota, 2008). If the IPCC were objective, it would demand an end to mass immigration instead of more carbon taxes and emissions trading.

The co-authors of a new book about Brett Kavanaugh blamed New York Times editors Monday for removing a key passage from an essay they published over the weekend that laid out a new, but uncorroborated, sexual misconduct allegation against the Supreme Court justice. In an interview with MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell, Times reporters Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly addressed the controversy over a New York Times Review essay they published Saturday that previewed their book, “The Education of Brett Kavanaugh: An Investigation.” The essay focused on uncorroborated allegations that Deborah Ramirez made against Kavanaugh in 1983, when they were both stu

While it may seem like merely a minor inconvenience to drink out of a mushy paper straw or sippy-cup lid, bans on straws have become the trendiest piece of legislation in the United States. Virtue-signaling lefties rejoice in what they consider to be “planet-saving” bans on useful items that children and disabled people need daily.

For a while, we thought MSNBC had temporarily usurped CNN as the font of fake news — although both networks had tied for the most negative coverage (93 percent of all their news reports) of President Trump’s first 100 days in office. A cynic would argue that CNN had deliberately given Trump undue coverage during the Republican primary on the theory that he would be the weakest Republican in the general election and would therefore be the weakest challenger to Hillary Clinton. CNN president Jeffrey Zucker at one point had bragged that in the primaries, Trump made CNN money. Only later, after Trump’s nomination, did Zucker regret giving

In a bad year for Republicans, the GOP successfully used Brett Kavanaugh's contentious Supreme Court confirmation as a rallying call ahead of last year's midterm elections. But Democratic presidential candidates are running headlong into the issue ahead of the 2020 presidential election regardless. Reporting from a pair of New York Times reporters on new—though hazy and unsubstantiated—sexual assault allegation has thrust Kavanaugh back in the news. Several leading Democratic candidates for president quickly seized on the report, now revised to note that the alleged victim of the assault doesn't recall the incident, to call for Kavanaugh's impeachment from the Court.

On September 9, 2019, Breitbart News reported that Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) asked Trump to support H.R. 8, thereby giving “political cover” to allow other Republicans to support it.

The teens approached three residents at the front yard of a home early Monday morning and attempted to rob them, authorities say. One of the would-be robbers took out a gun and fired shots at them, before one of the residents returned fire.

One video was taken in 2015 off the East Coast by a F/A-18F fighter jet using the aircraft's onboard Raytheon AN/ASQ-228 Advanced Targeting Forward-Looking Infrared (ATFLIR) Pod.
