If you committed a crime with a gun, why dump it in a very public place instead of dropping it in a lake or a garbage dumpster or burying it in a landfill, why put it somewhere where it would definitely raise a lot of attention and cause outrage......the logic does not compute.

Yes, I've already mentioned that. If the point had been simply to get rid of the gun, there are dumpsters and even the Atlantic Ocean immediately available.

The only reason to leave the gun on a store shelf was that someone would find it. I doubt it was an anti-gun group because the it's too long a coincidence that they would get their hands on a gun owned by someone in that same neighborhood.

But someone who lived in that neighborhood might want to "set up" someone who lived in that neighborhood, and would most likely do so right in that same neighborhood.

That's why I still think it was Chavonne Moore's boyfriend setting her up.

There would be no need to cause any kind of delay for anyone, nor even get in their face. Or instead of concealed carry of metal detectors by store employees, maybe concealed metal detectors in the aisles of the store, hooked up to alert security automatically. Security might want to keep a high powered rifle trained on people suspected of having guns, but never actually confront them nor get in their face, unless they actually committed a crime. It would be important for this scheme to be kept secret, because, if people knew about it, they might stop shopping there.

This would have the additional benefit of giving more meaning to Target's name. But Walmart might want to do it too.

That's some of the best satire I've read in ages!

What needs to happen is that these free speech people need to have their rights stripped. It's ridiculous that our republic is at risk just so they can have their opinions.

Didn't like that much, did ya? Well guess what, 2nd Amendment rights are equal to 1st Amendment rights.

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?
Link please! They use RFID devices to identify tagged items. Not metal detectors that I'm aware of. Would get annoying when they went off every time someone with a shopping cart passes them.

What crime. Being stupid? The police would be arresting the public in general, in droves.

He chickened out on robbing the place when he spotted possible cops profiling him, and as a convicted felon, he couldn't take a chance on being caught with a gun.
