Army veteran Aaron Bennett says he was banned from an Old Navy store in Jacksonville, Florida, after he pointed out a teen employee improperly wearing a Marine Corps uniform dress jacket complete with rank insignia, ribbons and a weapons badge, News4Jax.com reported Wednesday.
Bennett, who comes from a military family, knows that United States Code makes it illegal “to falsely represent oneself as having received any U.S. military decoration or medal.” The law making that illegal is known as the Stolen Valor Act.
One customer, Tacinta Connor, was quoted as saying she was no longer going to shop at Old Navy, Gap, Banana Republic, or Piperlime. That won’t be a problem for me. I never ventured into those places anyway.
Lil Chantilly, who blogs over at Heels and Handguns, is a little steamed, both under the collar and in her blogpost. What’s got her peeved? Bill Cosby went and gone done said this:
“When you carry a gun, you mean to harm somebody, kill somebody.”
And Lil is not having any of it. She’s right, of course. Under the 2nd Amendment, Americans are justly afforded the right to bear arms. She goes on to lambast him in this manner:
What? Did he really need to take his comments to that level? This actually offended me, and shocked me. It is such a blanket statement to make, very surprising coming from one of the biggest advocates of personal responsibility. So tell me, readers of this blog, and proponents of CCW: When you carry a gun, do you mean to kill or harm another person?
If you are so inclined, go over and howdy Lil. She’s got pics of herself shooting sniper rifles. Sniper. RIfles. Do not mess. With a country lady. And her sniper rifles. All several of them. That is a recipe for disaster:
