    @Thegrif

    Oh yes, because you read about it in the news everyday (rolls eyes).

    Please cite data of accidents and/or murders from gun owners in bars. I'll wait.

    "...at the discretion of the business owners or church officials." Excellent. Give the individual establishments their own choice. Personally I've seen too many rowdy drunks in my day to want to set foot in a gun allowing bar, but it should be their perogative.

    hahahaha.... listen to the Democrat all of a sudden she's concerned about the majority of the citizens... the majority of their citizens didn't want Obamacare either...

    Then that kind of goes along with the seceding comment that was made. Only good thing out of Georgia I'm aware of is the walking dead and peaches.

    @CandleJack Obviously you have never visited. Georgia is a beautiful state from Atlanta to Savannah. The best part? Freedom rings!

    @TigerLandSC I would have to agree 100 percent.... although I don't care much for Atlanta... savannah is an absolutely gorgeous city....t I've been through Georgia enough to know that the people are friendly.. and the hospitality is genuine.... and that's something you cannot say north of the Mason Dixon.

    @TigerLandSC Don't correct him/her. They might visit and want to stay. We have enough leftists as it is.

    BTW 66 degrees north of the perimeter right now. It's cloudy but nice. going to be 72 tomorrow.

    Living in Georgia just sucks LOL.

    Guns were allowed in bars and taverns in the 1970's and 80's (and presumably for all time before that) in the state where I went to 6th grade through high school. It was not a problem. I don't expect it to be any more of a problem now.

    Yeah, I should have read your post before I wrote mine. Lots of kids had guns in their trunks to get hunting right after school, but now you get suspended for having squirt guns or a plastic electronic skeet shooting game.

    These laws aren't allowing anything new, they are removing restrictions that have been created over the last couple decades.

    @Yank Same here. Many 18 year olds who drove to my high school kept rifles in their trucks for hunting after school. And we never had a single school shooting, and there was no hysteria over it.

    @CaryNickel Me too in Arkansas. Heck, I'd some times drive my Dad's truck with his gun rack in the back window, 2 or 3 rifles, no problem at all. Come to think of it I was in ROTC and was running around HS with an M1 or M14 allot of times. Again no problems. We've got a bunch of pussies in school now!:)

    We all had guns in our cars and trucks, and like the last topic, we got spankings if we got out of hand, but to these new kids that's abuse. Smh.

    @JIMBO56 to the point where kids are getting suspended for using their fingers as a fake gun or chewing their pop tarts into threatening shapes.

    After reading some of these comments I find a lot of them are just ignorant of the law and have NO idea what law-abiding citizens are. What has happen to the America I once knew it been taken over by a bunch un-informed children.

    @Sam-T-Jones Yeah, it's sad how things can't just stay the same forever. I mean, don't you wish America was still fighting the british and native americans? Don't you wish the west was still undiscovered territory, and everything was nice and slow...no phones, no lights, no motor cars, not a single luxury....

    You know what I bet ruined it all....those damned progressive liberals!

    Hell yeah. And when the lies of "blood in the streets" "Wild West shoot outs" "mass killings in bars" doesn't happen, I wonder what the left will do? Leftists have NEVER made a prediction about ANYTHING that has come to fruition. The reason? Everything that comes out of their mouths is based on emotion and feeeeeeeelings, instead of reality and logic.
  • #97

    Maybe if American had more feeeeeelings, we wouldn't be the violent, hateful place we are now. Everyone in this country acts like they're just itching to kill someone.

    Didn't mean that vote up, bty

    Reciprocity bill is drawn and ready for vote. After midterms, shortly after both Republican speakers take control of their respective houses I expect this to be done.

    Don't be surprised what we don't see blue dog democrats making reciprocity a part of their stump promises if elected.

    Reciprocity's time is near. My take on carry in bars is same as conceal carry when first passing in Florida. All the hoplophobes cried blood would flow in streets, like Dodge City before Wyatt Earp came to town.
    Then crime rates dropped.
    Now hoplophobes want to cry about guns in bars, except like you say. Bar carry hasn't produced any wild west gun fights in states where bar carry is legal.

    @daclark1911 like I said I've always found it highly hypocritical that someone on the left has no problem with all the hoops we have to jump through to exercise our 2nd amendment rights, but they scream bloody murder if we require a free state issued ID to vote. Idiocy.

    I go to bars so rarely that this issue isn't very high on my list of important topics, however, I'll repeat what I said last time we discussed this on Politix: Mix alcohol with testosterone, then add a little gun powder ... what could possibly go wrong, eh?... ;)

    @Denizen_Kate

    Based on the last 20 years or so and all the states that already allow it? Nothing. Oh, in Virginia, a few attempted robberies and carjackings were stopped, and people died. But dead criminals don't bother me too much, as long as the bar owner cleans up the parking lot fairly soon.
  • #14
    !
    Ok. So what? There's about 20 states that allow guns in bars. With how big gun related violence is being pumped out in the media right now, how come we don't hear any reports of "Man, drunk, shoots another man with his gun he is legally allowed in bar..."?

    Doing a search of it and I find nothing. A variation of guns and bars in some relative sense, but nothing about a man who is legally allowed to bring a gun into a bar, gets drunk and shoots someone. Can anyone find a story?
  • #76
    !
    Thank you. One story sorta matched up with what I was talking about. Although the guy had to go out to his car to get his gun when it was perfectly legal for him to have it inside the bar... if the bar allowed it.
  • #93

    @Poltal only problem, not one of them had a permit to carry and pulled their gun in the bar and started shooting. Nice try though.
  • #120
    !
    @Poltal

    ...and not a single mention of license status. Therefore, for all we know, based on media information, other than the retired cop story, the shooter were criminals and/or unlicensed carriers. I expect that part to go unread by the liberals who prefer to believe it's simply a bad idea. Basically, it's a bad idea for criminals to carry guns. Let's put an end to that. Oh wait, by disarming responsible citizens, criminals will have a free pass at any target of their choice. Smart people we have here (rolls eyes).

    "The new law extends gun rights quite broadly. Teachers and administrators will be able to bring weapons into schools..."

    Good!
  • #121

    There is no reason not to. A guy w/o concealed carry permit will bring one in regardless. BUT the guy with a permit knows his permit is invalid as soon as he takes a sip of booze. This has nothing to do with drunks shooting others.

    Sadly many are yankees bringing in votes what brought down the north.Before the trasher's start I am a transplant that sought a better life and the south did just that.For that I am forever grateful and glad to be home.Born in the south raised in the north and now back to were I belong.

    Actually it is the blue states that seem to be losing their population to gun violence. They also seem to want to make their children and movie goers as vulnerable as possible.

    @Yank yes, because 1 person shot up a movie theater, every movie theater from now until the end of time should have armed guards stationed at every entrance and exit! If only they had done that after Lincoln was assassinated some 200 years ago, we wouldn't have had that shooting in Aurora. Oh well, at least we can fix it now, so that in another 200 years when some nut decides to shoot in a theater, there will be people with guns in place to stop him!

    By the way, I hear that someone has been shot at almost every type of location you can think of one point or another.....are you sure we just shouldn't declare martial law, and imprison everyone in their homes for their own safety?

    @boombatic since he was talking about Darwin awards what is the more Darwinian approach, easing gun restrictions or forcing people to be targets for mad men? Also who said anything about heavily armed guards? Your own post shows that people should not be restricted in CC.

    When I got my CCW permit, the class instructor emphasized that only an idiot carries when he goes out drinking!

    @Keyjo

    But a bigger idiot doesn't realize one can go to a bar and not drink. But of course, it's a bar, why else would we go there. For starters, to meet friends who do drink. Second, many bars have great food. They also show sporting events when you can't get them at home. They also allow great manly/sport conversation if need be. But hey, why think of factual deductions. It's easier for a liberal to believe illogically emotional concepts.

    @Meanie

    I'm not a Liberal but I don't agree. Yes, people can go to bars and drink soft drinks. The law, at least in this State, requires that they be served. On occasion even I have done that for various reasons. How many times, however, do people actually do that?
  • #143

    @Meanie

    Firearms do not belong in bars. It's like taking a condom to church and putting it in the collection plate. It's legal but not a very good idea.

    @ahsum99ss

    Why not, they already drink and drive. Even though more drunk drivers kill 5 times more than guns, let's worry about guns in a bar when there isn't any data connecting the two with accidents (rolls eyes).
