July 1, 2014 8:23 pm -

The same gun humper who has been posting images of himself Open Carrying in the Richmond, Virginia, area Target stores just happened to be at a Moms Demand Action event over the weekend. Oh sure, there are coincidences in life, but the Open Carry groups are notorious for following the gun safety group around, even to the point of staking them out while they eat lunch in a restaurant.

David Taylor is seen posing as a random customer at Target, then just happens to give his views on gun rights while a news camera is rolling. Of course, he did so without mentioning that he’s part of the Open Carry groups which the Moms group is protesting.

He’s seen posing as a random Target customer and also just happens, by pure coincidence I’m sure, to be interviewed by WRIC. You see how he’s wearing his concerned face?


Strictly by coinky dink, he looks strikingly familiar to this man who has been protesting with long rifles at their stores.


This “random” customer is also this guy, who just happens (wink wink) to be supporting Target for their support of protests inside and outside of their establishments’ premises.


It’s certainly not illegal to be duplicitous. Taylor is not a random customer weighing in on the topic of walking around with long arms strapped to their backs, which most find extremely intimidating.

Watch him just happen to be at the same place and the same time as the Moms group — with cameras rolling, They’re ready for your closeup, Mr. Taylor:

WRIC Richmond News and Weather –

As reported here, a San Antonio based Target store told protesters, including a mother whose daughter was killed in the Colorado theater shooting, to leave because they were a ‘distraction.’ Still, gun fetishists are welcomed into their stores.

I would never want to infringe on David Taylor’s right to be duplicitous but for every action, there’s a reaction. Enjoy your moment, because you were just busted for lying by omission.

Target is so #OffTarget.

    @Target is just getting deeper and deeper into the doo-doo. Stinky and #OffTarget.

    Let me see, his dietary intake is obvious considering his physical aspect, now add his stupidity to how sneaky he thinks he is, and the open carry tag fits him to a “T”. I bet these numbskulls cannot explain why more than 95% of this crowd consist of white males.

    • William July 1st, 2014 at 8:42 pm

      and the open carry tag fits him to a “T”.
      the only thing that fits this food blister to a T is maybe a circus tent.

      • Tommy6860 July 1st, 2014 at 8:53 pm

        Maybe he’s a “Constipation-ist” 😛

    • psyhawk0 July 6th, 2014 at 11:44 pm

      That crowd are a bunch of A-hats but here’s something for you called “Inconvenient truth”
      Blacks (46%) comprised a higher percentage of murderers than Hispanics (27%) or whites (23%).

      46% from 6% of the population.

      But hey! Who am I and why would the government lie?

  3. Hank Kelly July 1st, 2014 at 8:38 pm

    Hasn’t Target been in enough doo doo with the credit card fiasco, and now they wanna kiss up to open carry nut jobs.

  4. Foundryman July 1st, 2014 at 8:38 pm

    I have to say, we are in a lot of trouble if this guy is part of our “organized militia” that will be protecting our freedom…

    • Pilotshark July 2nd, 2014 at 9:23 am

      he must be part of the 101 worst chairborne heavy jumbo unit, like the one above.

  5. William July 1st, 2014 at 8:41 pm

    Yo, dude, yeah you, Burger King special forces dude. Yeah, two words.

    • Tommy6860 July 1st, 2014 at 8:46 pm


    • Pilotshark July 2nd, 2014 at 9:21 am

      LOL, thanks for the deep belly coffee morning laugh!

    • BanditBasheert July 2nd, 2014 at 10:56 pm

      Bet he votes Republican. If he can find his precinct and/or read a ballot.

  6. Bridgett Cash July 1st, 2014 at 8:42 pm

    Target doesn’t care. Are we clear on this yet? Weeks have gone by, months and Target is still giving us a big fat FU.

    • Foundryman July 1st, 2014 at 8:48 pm

      I think you’re right. There were never enough progressive who shopped there in the first place to make a difference now. I sent them an email a few weeks ago letting them know I wasn’t going in their stores anywhere until they make a statement about keeping guns out of their stores. I’m sure many others did too, they don’t care, probably like the publicity.

      • Anomaly 100 July 1st, 2014 at 8:49 pm

        I shopped there (past tense). They had some pretty good deals, but Costco is even better. I’ll be getting a Costco card this week. Obviously, they don’t mind my business.

        • Foundryman July 1st, 2014 at 8:57 pm

          I wish there was a cosco near where i’m at…nearest one is about 60 miles away…

          • Anomaly 100 July 1st, 2014 at 8:59 pm

            Damn. There must be another alternative.

          • Foundryman July 1st, 2014 at 9:02 pm

            We have Kohl’s and Meijer’s…Wla-mart but I don’t go near Wal-mart either….

          • Anomaly 100 July 1st, 2014 at 9:06 pm


          • Foundryman July 1st, 2014 at 9:08 pm

            We had a Super K-Mart, until Wal-Mart moved in across the road….Now it’s a parking lot.

          • Anomaly 100 July 1st, 2014 at 9:11 pm

            Figures. WalMart does that to areas, and they also eliminate the Mom and Pop stores

          • m2old4bs July 1st, 2014 at 11:30 pm

            which is why, among other labor issue, I boycott Wal-Mart. It was actually the first on my boycott list.

          • Anomaly 100 July 1st, 2014 at 11:37 pm

            My boycott list has been growing quickly lately.

          • Carla Akins July 1st, 2014 at 9:18 pm

            You don’t know K-Mart? They’re damn near gone now. They’re partnered w/ Sears. This:

          • Anomaly 100 July 1st, 2014 at 9:35 pm

            Oh fuc…-(Oopsie, almost forgot I wasn’t on FON.)

          • Carla Akins July 1st, 2014 at 9:41 pm

            Funny, huh? Still didn’t save them. They have a great line of Martha Stewart stuff for the home.

          • tiredoftea July 1st, 2014 at 10:45 pm

            Supporting a felon, are we Carla?

          • Carla Akins July 2nd, 2014 at 4:44 am

            Yep. I like Martha. I bet she learned things.

          • Foundryman July 1st, 2014 at 9:20 pm

            Actually, K-Mart is owned by a far right wing nut that used the Ayn Rand economic business plan, bought Sears and is currently running both into the ground…

          • BanditBasheert July 2nd, 2014 at 10:54 pm

            Nope ..

        • tiredoftea July 1st, 2014 at 10:44 pm

          You know that you can’t use it as a driving license, right?

          • BanditBasheert July 2nd, 2014 at 10:54 pm

            Is she trying to do that again?

          • tiredoftea July 2nd, 2014 at 10:56 pm

            She’ll stop?

        • M D Reese July 1st, 2014 at 10:55 pm

          I live in the “bush” and I think the nearest Costco is at least 300 air miles from me. However one of our 3 small supermarkets just put in a 20′ x 20′ “Costco Corner” in their store. We used to have to mail order a lot of the stuff. The prices are great and they carry a lot of Costco’s bulk food items and a few sundries. The spices and nuts are especially affordable. They have 2 workers dedicated to keeping that area stocked and they can barely keep up.

          • BanditBasheert July 2nd, 2014 at 10:54 pm


          • M D Reese July 3rd, 2014 at 5:32 pm

            I hope it starts a trend. I make sure to let them know that I appreciate it and shop that section. I guess they have some sort of contract with Costco. A lot of the food is “Kirkland” brand.

      • m2old4bs July 1st, 2014 at 11:28 pm

        Yup, did the same. So far no reply, not even a rote “thank you for contacting us” type of thingy. It joins my ever growing boycott list.

      • BanditBasheert July 2nd, 2014 at 10:54 pm

        I’d agree except after that pesky little faux pas where they lost hundreds of thousands of people’s credit card numbers, Target is definitely trying to become “the company most hated”.
        There is nothing at Target that can’t be bought anywhere else.

    • LoriBelle July 1st, 2014 at 8:53 pm

      What do you expect from an anti-gay company? Its been years since I shopped there. I have too many gay/lesbian friends to step foot in one of those stores.

    • heirloomtomato July 1st, 2014 at 9:37 pm

      It took Starbucks a month until they issued their “gun statement”..

  7. neworleans878 July 1st, 2014 at 10:16 pm

    SPS (Small Penis Syndrome) is real, folks. This guy seems to have a severe case.

    • Pilotshark July 2nd, 2014 at 1:22 pm

      he has a SKS for his SPS

    • BanditBasheert July 2nd, 2014 at 10:52 pm

      I think he has MPS (Missing penis syndrome) –

  8. tiredoftea July 1st, 2014 at 10:46 pm

    I’m guessing that his rifle came in handy when he ran them out of candy bars. You know, for official militia purposes only. Honest.

    • Anomaly 100 July 1st, 2014 at 10:52 pm

      Finally! What took you so long to get here?

      • tiredoftea July 1st, 2014 at 10:58 pm

        Buying candy bars.

        • Anomaly 100 July 1st, 2014 at 11:03 pm

          Well now you’ll never get ‘it’ back!

          • tiredoftea July 1st, 2014 at 11:24 pm

            I was going to share!

          • Anomaly 100 July 1st, 2014 at 11:25 pm

            Oh SURE, and I totally believe you.

          • tiredoftea July 1st, 2014 at 11:27 pm

            Oh, that’s the way it’s going to be! I’m telling Alan on you!

          • Anomaly 100 July 1st, 2014 at 11:37 pm

            I don’t care. You’re not the boss of me!

          • tiredoftea July 1st, 2014 at 11:38 pm

            I’m telling him, I’m telling him. I’m telling on you!

          • Anomaly 100 July 1st, 2014 at 11:41 pm

            Oh puh-leaze! Go right ahead and tell. I’m not askeered of Alan!

          • tiredoftea July 1st, 2014 at 11:41 pm

            You just wait. He’ll show you.

          • Anomaly 100 July 1st, 2014 at 11:43 pm

            What can he do, HUH? Nothin’, that’s what. I moved out of state. He’ll never find me!

          • tiredoftea July 1st, 2014 at 11:44 pm

            Oh, yeah? Oh yeah? Well, I’m telling!

    If THIS represents the average American, I’m sickened. To quote Dean Wormer: Fat, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life. Sadly, these jerkoffs didn’t get the memo.

    • BanditBasheert July 2nd, 2014 at 10:51 pm

      Also male, ugly and white.

  11. SmarterThanGlennBeck July 2nd, 2014 at 3:45 pm

    If you’re so fearful that you’re going to be attacked while shopping at Target then stay in the safety of your own home and shop online.

    • BanditBasheert July 2nd, 2014 at 10:51 pm

      Actually I think I will just take my money elsewhere As will a whole bunch of other people especially families who take their kids shopping.

    • Jasper Taylor July 4th, 2014 at 7:13 pm

    Is there some rule that you have to be a complete fat slob to be a member of the Open Carry groups , or is that just another reason for their overcompensation ?

    • BanditBasheert July 2nd, 2014 at 10:50 pm

      He doesn’t know if he has a penis or not, he hasn’t seen it for years.

  18. Yeah way July 3rd, 2014 at 1:01 am

    Is it just me, or did suddenly become much more….erm…”pithy”?
    The quips are coming fast and furious…without any of that bothersome profundity that typically used to bog down the site! It’s like our mundane ole prog rock station got re-formatted to an AM sock hop…with a 24 hr morning zoo!
    Did we merge with Rachel Maddow’s fansite or perhaps the Jon Stewart Show or some such thing?
    Why am I always the last to know these things??

    • yeah way July 3rd, 2014 at 1:05 am

      Firearms enthusiasts, hunters, range marksmen and my fellow collectors of historically significant milsurp, are now described as having “small penis syndrome”?
      On Liberaland?? Really??

      Lol, well, when my penis can drop a moose at 300 meters, maybe I’ll consider your analogy…

      • Carla Akins July 3rd, 2014 at 5:23 am

        The small penis monicker is reserved fro those that feel compelled to “educate” us by open carrying into public places like city parks, little league fields and Target. We can only assume they are compensating for something, since it is absolutely unnecessary and makes them look ridiculous. They are successful in scaring the hell out of small children.

    • ryan July 3rd, 2014 at 3:31 am

      The answer is that they merged with a site called freakoutnation. I like freakoutnation and I like Alan, but I don’t think I like both. I liked the profundity of Alan and I liked liked the snark of Freak Out, but together…it’s like mixing gun powder and lemonade.

      • Alan July 3rd, 2014 at 8:11 am

        I appreciate that you like me AND FON, but, together, we have the best of both worlds. Anomaly and her snarky friends help lighten the atmosphere, and Anomaly’s posts bring a dimension to the site that gives it more depth.

        • Um Cara July 3rd, 2014 at 8:38 am

          The bunch of new moderators will take a bit of getting used to. I’m sure we will figure out what their rules are at some point – but right now it can be kind of confusing when many of the actual site posts can be filled with obscenities & insults, but we can get chided for moderately polite arguments in our posts. I always appreciated the fairly clear, but liberal lines you and Epi drew in the sand, and the classy level of the site posts.

          I’m sure over time it will all make sense – but I have to confess to missing the old I’m sure I will come to love the new unholy monster the site has become, however 😉

          • Alan July 4th, 2014 at 1:24 pm

            it is the same, with more users and, thus, new views and attitudes.

        • ChrisVosburg July 3rd, 2014 at 3:21 pm

          We can do profundity. We can be profound to beat the band!

          [Oh wait, no we can’t]

          • Alan July 4th, 2014 at 1:26 pm

            sorry, that was too deep for me.

          • ChrisVosburg July 4th, 2014 at 1:36 pm

        • honeycombfan July 27th, 2014 at 8:02 am

          Anomaly did no fact-checking on me, Alan. That certainty takes the site to new depths.

          • arc99 July 27th, 2014 at 8:23 am

            given the unexplored depths one will find on right wing sites, particularly the Adidas soccer jersey as a Muslim prayer rug, this site is a beacon of accuracy.

          • honeycombfan July 27th, 2014 at 8:30 am

  19. psyhawk0 July 6th, 2014 at 11:41 pm

    A lot of pro-gun people are upset with these a**hats who are open carrying long guns.
    Its the wrong approach and there is no good excuse to open carry a long gun safely.
    By the time you get it unslung, a mag loaded and a round chambered, you’re dead.

    Many are split on open carry for various reasons: No need to make people who are already nervous even more so. It makes you a target for those with bad intentions and they know who to take out first.

    Now, I read the thread and just stunned that a group of open minded people who call themselves open minded feel that it is OK to make fun of, make light of and attack someone citing their weight.

    Really? I don’t know what issues he may have. Maybe he does eat too much and exercise too little but is that reason to make fun of someone? Seems pretty prejudiced and bigoted towards obese people.

    What next? Making fun of cross-eyed people and those with physical deformities?
    Simply childish and those of you doing it should be ashamed of yourselves.

  20. honeycombfan July 19th, 2014 at 7:37 pm

    When asked by the news crew why I was there, I told them it was “to watch the show” MDA was putting on. I never said I was a customer, but TV8 news did correctly call me a customer. After I saw that their protest was a bunch of nothing, I joined my wife inside who was shopping. By the time we left, all the hullabaloo outside was over with, everyone was gone. Was I armed? Of course.
