Ben Hicks started this petition to Target and

 I am a law abiding, peaceful citizen that simply wants to exercise his rights of personal protection without being harassed. Walmart, Kroger, and others are trying stop myself and my loved ones from being able to protect ourselves by denying us the right to carry our firearms into their stores. Let's stop these political games. The right to self protection extends beyond political affiliation, race, gender, or any other labels that might divide us. Check out these facts:

  • "The congressionally-mandated study of the federal “assault weapon ban” of 1994-2004 found that the ban had no impact on crime, in part because “the banned guns were never used in more than a modest fraction of gun murders.” (Urban Institute[1]) Rifles of any type are used in only two percent of murders. (FBI[2])

  • Murder rates were 19.3% higher when the Federal [assault weapon] ban was in effect.”[3]
    Americans own over fifteen million AR-15s and buy hundreds of thousands of new ones every year. (National Shooting Sports Foundation)

  • AR-15s are the most commonly used rifles in marksmanship competitions, training, and home defense.

  • Total violent crime has fallen to a 44-year low and murder to an all-time low, while ownership of the firearms and magazines that gun control supporters want banned has risen to all-time highs. (FBI,[5] ATF[6])

  • AR-15s and other semi-automatic rifles are not the fully-automatic, military-grade firearms they are often claimed to be by gun control supporters and the media.

  • Ammunition magazines that hold more than 10 rounds are standard equipment for many handguns and rifles that Americans keep for self-defense.

  • The terrorist attacks in France and Belgium show that gun bans—including those on semi-automatic firearms and standard-capacity magazines—don’t prevent crime. In both countries, the ownership of firearms, including semi-automatics, is severely restricted.

  • Gun control supporters are wrong to claim that “assault weapons” are used in most mass shootings. While the media focus on this false narrative, mass shootings have been committed with firearms of all types, and without firearms of any type."

Corporations are trying to cut off funding for firearms purchases by "We the People", Walmart is attempting to cease it's sales of handguns and certain types of ammunition, private sales are being heavily regulated in many states. The noose is tightening. Let's tell Walmart and other corporations that we will not let big corporations strip us of our rights!!
