As long as the company they are buying it from allows it of course, if not they can find dozens of other places that will be more than happy to sell it to them.

Do you want the government regulating what companies can and can't do? If so, that's extremely surprising coming from you.


You don't honestly expect a direct answer to any of your questions, do you?

Yeah it is crazy.

If the left gets to tell them what to do.

SO DOES THE RIGHT.

Democracy in action.

DEAL.

Ever going to grow up?

That's not democracy, that's authoritarianism. A company choosing not to sell weapons to certain age groups is not the same as the government making a law. You're getting your wires all criss-crossed.

That 20 year old in Portland already knows that.

He has dozens of other options to buy his guns from. Like I said, one company's decision does not a law make.

Neo? I can imagine these same people arguing that Rosa Parks should have just kept her mouth shut and rode in the back.

18 can go to war or even be drafted.

18 can vote.

18 should be the age to purchase.

And what did that 20 year choose to do?

Work within the law instead of break it.

Sounds like an adult to me.

We are not talking about laws here, This is not a government issue. We are talking about the rights of individuals and corporations that are selling the guns. Eighteen to twenty year olds are not a minority, this has nothing to do with sex or sexual preference. It is illegal in some cities, so go after the cities.

I am sure that the heads of Walmart consulted their powerful attorneys before passing this policy, it was not a whim. Every bigger decision that goes through a corporation is brought before a legal team before implementing. These people did not get rich by making fly by night decisions that open them up to lawsuits. I am betting Walmart attorneys will not even offer a settlement with this, just a big countersuit which will bankrupt the person filing it. Their actions on this are allowable, after all, you can refuse to serve people under the age of twenty one even though they are legal in other states, so by this precedence, a store should be able to refuse selling guns to these people. I sure wouldn't sue a big corporation over something like that, I could wind up hiring an attorney that would wipe out everything I own after the lawsuit was denied to pay for the lawyers of the corporation I sued.

There are other places that sell guns, Walmart is not the only place, just shop elsewhere. Walmart doesn't have good prices on guns, some sports stores have much better deals you can make. I am sixty two, if I was to want to buy a gun, I sure wouldn't go to Walmart to get one.

Yeah.

This is what passes for liberalism in the 21st century.

Your point?

Dick's hasn't broken any laws with their decision. If they did you'd have government regulating what a business can and can't do. I thought you guys were against that kind of thing? Small government right?

businesses can refuse service to any person for any reason, unless the business is discriminating against a protected class


Not true

Were the ones defending that bakery's decision also telling Rosa Parks to sit down and shut up?

No, they weren't. Because it's just as wrong to force someone to sit where you want as it is to force someone to make a cake.
