    this is just like America people don't even know who is Muslim but they are sure fast to judge.
    I am sure The donald would be proud.

    ISIS's best bet would be to radicalize white Muslims. They'd fly right under the radar.

    What did Obama say? If you see something say something?

    Profiling works

    I think the point of this story is that sometimes it doesn't.

    The Dick's Sporting Goods near me treats everyone like a criminal for buying ammo, regardless of race. They looked at me like I had 17 eyes when I asked for more than 100 rounds, then said no, then reluctantly changed their mind when I pointed out they don't have any policy against it. I still got to do the walk of shame with the ammo in a locked container to the counter, accompanied by a grumbling employee.

    I hate that place.

    Same here in Utah. I never shop there because they ensure to make you feel as uncomfortable as possible over your purchases.

    If you see something, say something, you bigot. I dare you.

    I have no problem with that. I don't think it's a new idea, as it's one we've been dwelling on since at least 9/11. But yes, if you see a crime being perpetrated, or see something that leads you to become suspicious, then by all means say something.

    This part makes no sense. Who's the bigot? Who are you daring?

    Same thing here (NY)... You want to buy .22 long rifle, you must have some kind of pistol because .22 are only used by the bangers in the cities. Nope, I just want bullets for my .22 rifle.

    You're so full of it. If this happened to a white or Hispanic person, you'd be losing your **** over your rights.

    Just asking, most spree shooters are men right?

    So if I see a man buying 100 rounds of ammo, I should alert the authorities?

    No sympathy. They need to profile anyone buying large amounts of weaponry and firearms. She should be thankful.

    In all fairness anyone buying such a large amount of ammo should have a police visit, regardless of what profile they are tbh

    Its the confusion between sikh and muslim that bothers me here, the two are very different.

    That's only 160 rounds if it's still sold in 20rd boxes I'd not call that a large amount.

    If I had police show up at my house in the same situation, I'd answer their questions, all would be fine. I would then shake their hand and thank them for doing their job.

    Anyone going to that many LGBT/Pro Life/Occupy/Tea Party rallies should have a police visit.

    Anyone posting that much about the government online should have a police visit.

    Anyone going to the mosque/church/synagogue that often should have a police visit.

    Anyone buying that many Qurans/Bibles should have a police visit.


    It's a Constitutionally protected right; the government or anyone else has no business deciding how much you can exercise it.
