    Easthampton: The turdhole of Western Mass. My wife grew up there and was graced with the worst possible public education a New England school district could offer. Luckily she rose above her lot in life… but then she married me. So I guess it was a wash.

    I've never been kicked out but have gotten some NASTY stares for my firearm related clothing.

    What a crappy store, if you're anything like me you spend a lot of money at liquor stores. Stupid they just lost all your business

    Nobody (outside of "gun people) knows what that is, or what it means, or Molon Labe for that matter. Everyone knows who Glock and Smith & Wesson are.

    I vote for "statist authoritarian hoplophobic douchebag". A moniker that can apply regardless of skin color, race, creed, religion, gender, or national origin.

    OP edit made it clear...

    The offending store is:

    Jims PACKAGE is in Easthampton

    OOps. Now everybody knows there are fraid of guns.

    How long before they are robbed now since the clerk is an unarmed fool.

    Well, those screen printed images of a gun are pretty dangerous after all... What a maroon. It is frightening, the level of stupidity at large in our society these days.

    One of the local stores I visit all the time has a sign in the door asking to remove your hoodie, they are not against hoodies at all, they just want to be able to see a face on the camera in case something happens, I can't say I blame them very much, some people today have no regard for life and would kill you for a pack of cigarettes.

    Soooooo, the honest people will all be smiling for the cameras and the thugs will keep their hoodies tied down. lol

    At least this might give the clerks an extra second or two to suspect someone so they can get to their cell phones and their Charmin

    Having an incoherent Christmas night I see ~

    Read my post again and try to give an effort to what I posted! Not what you thought was a fast clever response.

    I only posted what my local store has as a sign in their door, Never said anything about who is honest or who ain't ~

    Merry Christmas

    I'm not taking an issue with your analysis, I'm taking issue with their sign which won't work to keep them safe from robberies. It'll give them an extra moment to recognize that they are being robbed.

    But they'll get to see in the camera footage the look of fear and horror on the honest patron's faces as the hoodied thugs rob them.

    Sounds like an opening for 2A education via your brother. An opportunity to enlighten presents itself.
