Hours after President Barack Obama called on Congress to ban assault weapons, one man's protest raised some eyebrows at a Utah store.
An Ogden woman snapped a few photos of a man standing inside a J.C. Penney on Wednesday with a big gun slung over his shoulder.
I've shopped at the local J.C. Penney store from time to time over the years and have actually increased my shopping there since they defied the anti-gay One Million Moms group over hiring Ellen DeGeneres as a spokesperson. J.C. Penney is a chain, not a franchise, so policy decisions are made by the corporate headquarters, not individual store owners. I have decided, after seeing this story, to contact them and tell them that I will boycott their company until they ban guns from their stores and post signs advising shoppers of the ban before they enter. They have that right, since their stores are private property. And they should enforce it, too, by immediately calling the police if one of these morons ignores the sign and walks into the store anyway. I can't imagine that most of the other shoppers were comfortable with this ridiculous stunt - I know I sure as hell wouldn't be. I'm tired of this bullshit.

I've only published a few diaries over the years and I'm not very good with tags. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
