Darwin's law? Since when did Darwin start writing laws? I thought he was a theorist?

I'd be curious to see the store's internal surveillance footage to back up the store's story.

For all we know, this could just be an overblown mock-up of something else. What if someone simply acted recklessly, or if the clerk was jumpy for some other reason, and the "perp" got caught in the crossfire somehow, and this is the story they decided to tell?

That thought actually crossed my mind for a split second. Unlike with the police I think, if there is one, the real story would get out quickly.

Yeah, that's a very unusual gun store policy. At least around these parts. I wouldn't even go to a gun store that didn't permit me to carry my sidearm.

I've always wondered about this.

Personally, I would never carry loaded into a gun store when carrying my item in. I don't need to worry about carrying because the friggin' employees are all armed; at least in Philly anyway.

At the gun store I go to here in the city, at least one employee is OC'ing in the store at all times, and they have a very good reason to.

I always clear a firearm before handing it over to any human being, and I do not hand a gun over to a gun store employee without the chamber being kept open, and that's so I know that *I'm* safe; in case the gun store employee sweeps me since there's a counter between us. If a dude comes barging into the store, I'll rely on the employees to fire or return fire; I'm happy with lying flat on the floor until it's over.

Which stores do you go to? I used to go to The Firing Line years ago and they did not want customers to have loaded weapons on them. You had load you gun at the line if you used the range.

I frequently go to Tanner's, Clayton's and Classic Pistol. I've been to a few others as well.

Locks. I used to live a few blocks from the store.
