    I didn't get any names yet - this just came over the KPAX 8.1 Local News:

    A merchant in Missoula, where masks are mandatory - told a guy that he had to wear a mask to be in the store. It's a gas station/convenience store.

    The guy without a mask reached under his coat and brandished by showing - but did not draw - a pistol and said: "Make me".

    Not good - not good at all.

    This is in Montana.

    I'll try to get names - if they release them - as soon as I can.

    If it went down like that, hope they are prosecuted with book thrown at them. Anyone that foolish should NOT be carrying a firearm.

    Some people are going nutz over this.

    https://www.clickorlando.com/news/l...sed-from-volusia-county-school-board-meeting/

    " The women were ultimately trespassed but not arrested.

    “I’m being pulled out of the room, OK? This is America 2020, I’m arrested for sitting in a room,” Cohen said as she was being escorted out.

    She said her stance is that parents and students should have the right to choose whether or not they wear a mask on campus.

    "It needs to be an option. If children come from families that want them to be masked, everyone has that right. We’re not asking to take that right away. We’re asking to be given the right to medical choice,” she said. "

    Pretty clear what the publicity whores needed to do.

    “You all can choose to either leave, wear a mask, go out and come in without a mask to speak and then leave or be removed,” he said.

    You are right. Both are stupid. One could have died in front of his daughter. The other is going to jail.

    If you are worried about someone not wearing a mask walk away from them. No need to say anything. Unless they pursue you or assault you, then maybe have a confrontation.

    Businesses should also recognize that some people are Medically Exempt from wearing a mask.

    I would not shop at that business ever again. This nonsense will end soon enough, but people will remember. Long term damage by way of lost regular customers will have an effect.

    And these are the people who should stay home or wear a face shield.

    Here's the deal, don't like the shop's policies, don't shop there. It's that simple.

    Where was the outrage over the "no shirt, no shoes, no service" signs?

    Wonder which place it was. I was recently in Missoula - the stores I was in had a mix of both masked and unmasked people. Nobody seemed concerned one way or the other.

    I hate wearing a mask. But I wear it to get by... if it is not required I don’t and most of the week I am with people who don’t wear one and none of us have gotten the virus. I’m not talking about 10 or 12 people either. We have a rather large circle of family and friends and we all interact with others too. I’m not saying the virus is fake, I’m saying the continued response is ridiculous.
