Luckily the outcome is harmless. If a child has discharged the gun it would have been a whole set of different issues to talk about.

I read on another site that they have video of a man leaving the gun, so they are now trying to track him down and the original owner of the gun. Many are saying this was possibly planted by the "Moms Demand Action" group. Especially since they have been putting pressure on Target to ask that legal concealed carry people to not enter the store. With the bile, lies and hatred being spewed by that group, I do not put it past them.

How did they manage to get a gun owned by someone living close by?

Keep in mind it is only speculation, although the video does show someone planting the gun. And I guess I'm not following your question. I'm sure there are members of MDA all over the country, why would one local to that store be odd ?

How do you know he planted it and hadn't committed a crime and was dumping the gun?

Much more likely. It's a lot more likely than the idea that someone from "Moms Demand Action" would have access to a stolen handgun and it would by wild coincidence be one stolen right from that same neighborhood.

This happened in a Myrtle Beach Target recently and so it begs the question. Places like Target and Walmart used detectors to keep their merchandise from leaving the store. Shouldn't they also take a bit of their budget and screen for weapons entering their stores? Would doing so violate our second amendment?

You think the lines at the registers are bad....the ones at the door would be worse.

Nah. After the first week, there would be no lines at all at either the doors or the registers.

I'd love to hear your thoughts on preventing plane crashes and rainy days.
