    I think we all can pick our favorite times when we saw an American Institution bend leftwards...... Jackie cites Walmart, you say "when France III kowtowed to Jesse Jackson" where I use the term "pandering to the bigots" but they all point to the same problem....which is US

    WE, as in OUR GENERATION have failed to recognize and stop this sort of stuff early and more importantly we have failed utterly to pass on solid mores, values and abilities to our young. We look at these "millenials" with wonder..... but few of us stop to think, "WE MADE THEM!" We made them by dropping the value system of our forebears. We, as in my generation, send our kids off to college to make ourselves feel good. We've made college into a "guilt tax" where the more we spend the more we can say "well, I did all I could".... "we gave our children every advantage" ..... "it's not OUR fault" ......

    Nope, it's OUR stupid fault. And it's time for us, for we, for those of us who can RECOGNIZE the problem to fix it. From the ground up, we've got to fix it.... We're the last generation of people who've seen both sides. Our kids don't even know what it's like to have "esprit de corp" or "patriotism" nor to feel the endorphin rush of achievement and growth. These kids today are being told they already have a voice, they already "matter" and they're already equal to society's call....

    When I was a kid my parents recognized that I was A CHILD, therefore unable to make good decisions.... I wasn't given any credence. Nowadays we've got the collective opinions of groups of school children being used to make government policy decisions. And we stand by and let them do it. Not only do we stand by but most of us wonder quietly if "maybe they're right, maybe gun control IS the answer".... this is the part, one of the parts, I call "stupid!"

    WE have made all of these choices. Now it's time for US to fix them.... this is how the real world works.

    Or doesn't.

    The choice is ours to make.

    Fix it is easy to say I worked for our largest School District 43 sites and there is no changing the School Boards minds they are the Left. Educators no longer have a part in running the District they all now have Business degrees and it's all about the money and not education.

    I was buying gun stuff before Walmart was selling it.

    From what I have read about the Walmart policy is that they have asked their customers not to come into Walmart stores caring guns in the open carry mode. This was after the shooting in the El Paso store and after a nut was stopped in the parking lot at another store trying to walk in with an AR styled rifle on his hip. This policy does not include law officers. I see no problem at all with that. Their choice to sell or not to sell certain items is also theirs to make. It doesn't affect my 2nd amendment rights or yours in the least. Frankly, I do not like to shop at Walmart anyway because their stores are just too large. I buy my gun stuff at my local gun stores or on line anyway. I respect their right to operate their stores as they think best, after all, this is America. If I ever need something they have, and I cannot find it somewhere else, I will shop there.

    We've been on the school boards. My Dad was on the school board. And in the last 20yrs we've moved from the public school system to private school, then "Christian School" and now, for the last 5 yrs to home school.

    It's WORK raising effectual kids.

    I do not shop at Walmart.

    What's the big deal?
    Wallyworld asks that you don't walk around in their stores with a gun on your hip where everybody can see it, looking like a cowboy. No problem. Concealed carry.
    IMHO, the only person that should have a gun on their hip (with a badge next to it) is a LEO.
    The LEO are the ones with a target on their backs anyway.
    Don't like the way Wallyworld does business? Don't shop there.
    Don't like the store policy? Don't shop there.
    Funny how Wallyworld was the best thing since sliced bread when you could go in and buy a gun cheaper than any place else.
    Now? They're worse than ANYTHING ELSE could ever be.
    Bottom line? Wallyworld is in it for the MONEY. That's the American Way.

    I bought one a' them cheapo chi-com lathes so's I can do gun work......

    I also paid quite a bit MORE money and bought a Heavy 10 because I can.

    The SB10 is a pita to use, fussy, lots of oiling maintenance, HAD a place in history.

    So here's my youtube contribution, this is how I love to see history preserved, and no whining!

    Youíre missing the second amendmentís point. You donít need the govt permission to carry a firearm. Donít need a CC or any govt certification. Every inch we give, we donít get back.

    The Colorado baker lost lots of time and money fighting a lawsuit from a tranny lawyer. Big difference
