    We live in a corporate coward culture. Lawyers and doctors get this kind of indoctrination in our anti-gun commie-lib colleges and universities. Yes, fear of sue-happy people.

    Sadly, we now live in a highly litigious society. When I was a kid, a lawsuit involving your average Joe was practically a newsworthy event. :anyone:

    I disagree to some extent. There's a lot of companies that do really really janky horrible stuff and then use policies and lawyers to get away with it. There are also companies that vilify people with actual real complaints to push the narrative that they're under attack. Like the McDonalds case that always gets held up. That lady suffered some horrific third degree burns, McDonalds had a history of claims against them that they never fixed preceding that, and it never would have gone to court but McDonalds denied her initial request which was medical only. The judge/jury threw everything her way.

    Point is, she wasn't trying to get rich or file anything insane but years later gets held up like some kind of criminal that was scheming against the poor little defenseless multi billion dollar multinational. I tend to think there's a lot of lawsuits that are perfectly justified but the companies and PR firms on the other side do what they did the in McDonalds case --- wage a PR war against the individual.

    Wonder what would have happened if you had left that gun in the car and took out another one completely loaded in full view of him and returned to the store?

    Having seen this crap from the other side, that'd be my guess. People like to blame lawyers (then again, who doesn't?), but a lot of it is coming from insurance carriers.

    At that point I’d have been tempted to shove the gun in the holster with the lock attached, real hard. Then yank it back out, say “This holster doesn’t fit my gun” and hand it back to them. :D

    Same experience at the Norman Atwood’s last year. I asked why, and the manager told me it was an ATF requirement. I tried real hard to not laugh at him.

    So you became another 2A auditor?
    I don’t like that policy either but it’s their business and their rules. Why blatantly challenge them? The employee was just following work place rules their employer requires them to follow to keep their jobs that may be supporting a family.
    I don’t get it?
