At one point in our history, when we were building a nation, we had a folk tale, and songs sung of Johnny Appleseed:
With the help of Home Depot, we have a new folklore starting- Johnny Assaultrifle.
On Saturday, May 31, over 150 open carry enthusiasts plan to convene at a Home Depot in the Fort Worth suburb of North Richland Hills, Texas.If you were not able to strap your rifle on your back, grab your kids and attend one of these, allow us at CogDis to help bring you there:
The event has been billed by organizers Open Carry Tarrant County as “the largest open carry to date” in an area that has lately been a focal point for gun rights campaigners. Raffle prizes on offer include a black powder revolver and an AR 15 rifle.
Home Depot’s corporate communications director said the $80 billion (revenues) store chain has no plans to prevent the rally from taking place.
“Our feeling is that ultimately, the voters direct the laws on gun carry issues, so we defer to the prevailing ordinances in states and communities,” said Stephen Holmes. “Therefore, customers who are legally permitted to carry firearms are allowed to do so when entering our stores, provided the firearms are carried in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations.”
