Oh the horror of a private company not allowing loaded guns to be carried into their place of business.

Seriously, I doubt very seriously many of the gun nuts shop at Whole Foods anyway.

So toddy are you saying that if I owned a business and you came in professing your love for obama...you would be fine if I kicked you out for doing so?

Why do you always insist on referring to people wanting to exercise their 2nd Amendment rights as "gun nuts?"

I used to go there primarily for one thing, French bread. I ran into a friend I hadn't seen in ten years one day.

My office is absolutely loaded with guns. One of my bosses has cases of every type under the sun stacked in his office.

I pity the fool who comes in here looking for trouble.

I like their California Club. Outside of that I would never be foolish enough to pay so much money for generic products.

The most common crime in Whole Foods is highway robbery for its food prices. And since the company and its customers are so politically correct, why not require that each fat cat wealthy customer bring along and finance an underprivileged minority shopper to increase diversity at the retailer?


This is just.. ugh, sad.

The ridiculous industrial food system is why things cost so much, at least places like Whole Foods are pushing for things to be more localized.

Also, not everyone that shops at Whole Foods spends a fortune. It's a huge misconception. Most people that shop there eat smarter than people who shop in regular stores, some things may cost a dollar more, but overall they eat less, they buy less garbage.. don't spend as much.

Actually the industrialized food system is why things cost so little....without it many would have starved to death.

Really? Maybe they claim to but their "organic" stuff is pretty much mass produced and isn't "local" by any stretch of the imagination.

Only in your world does that make any sense.

Because of the industrial food system millions DO starve to death.

Correct, to a degree. Listen, I'm not a Whole Foods advocate. It has been created out of this industrial monster, I'd prefer a much different way of getting quality food.

Nah, that's actually a common understanding. People that load up on a ton of garbage at normal stores spend more. Most people that shop at Whole Foods have a totally different mindset, they may spend an extra dollar on a product, but overall they're buying less.

Concealed means concealed. I practice judo and hand to hand combat every week and if that officer decides to do that to a highly trained guy, shite gonna get sticky fast.

I noticed that Mall of La Movie theater also has a 'No Gun' sign on the doors.

I would still carry concealed as I won't put my safety and defense in their hands.

Patently false.

Not a degree..."industrial monster"? How would you prefer to get food genius...and in what way can we feed more people?

I think a lot of people would be surprised at the number of women--mostly professional, middle class women--that carry guns in New Orleans. Most of them concealed without a permit. They are certainly customers Whole Food targets.

Remember when the lady set her purse down in Galatoir's and her gun went off??

It would not surprise me at all if 20% professional, middle class women in New Orleans are packing.

I bet there were at least 5 people in that Whole Food store at the time that guy was attacked by the cop that was carrying a concealed weapon--probably illegally.
