    Will think for food.....

    ......or is that food for thought.......somethin' like that. Anyway, this happened just down the street in the next town.........
    Police: Franklin Man Threatens to Shoot Local Bar Patrons : exploreVenango.com

    Honestly, I never thought disallowing legal, licensed CCers to carry in bars was ever a good idea and this is exactly why. I understand the misplaced fear of many that some drunk might pull his gun for some stupid reason but really, even a loud argument, let alone a minor brawl seems to be as unlikely in a bar as running over Nessie or Bigfoot on your way to the grocery store. However, like ALL no gun zones, it invites loonies like this jackwad to target the patrons within since he knows they're unarmed. Luckily, he didn't have a gun but he very well could've made good on his threats and it might've been a massacre. Pay particular attention to the last paragraph.

    Never a good idea to mix bar drinks with when carrying a gun. It is only common sense not to carry if your going out drinking.

    In North Carolina the new law has allowed citizens to carry in bars as long as they don't drink.

    Even in the old west, it seems very few gunfights erupted in saloons. Nowadays, especially with strict DUI laws, people are unlikely to get "drunk" in a bar and most are just socially drinking so I can't see it really being an issue. People are more likely to get inebriated at home and are either carrying or have guns handy in the house so......does this mean if you are going to drink at home you should get rid of your guns? Should all homes which have alcohol on hand be no gun zones?

    Your right, that's why I quit drinking years ago, because I am always carrying.

    If you are going to drink at home you should empty the guns and lock them away.

    Do your drinking at home or be the DD when you go out. In Ohio it's legal to carry in a bar as long as you're not drinking.

    here in Georgy for some time now if licensed you are allowed to carry in any establishment that sales alcohol, the key is that if you are legally drunk (as per a DUI) then you can be arrested.
    of course now as usual I worry a lot more about the gang bangers that don't have a license, nor any training but still carry a gun anywhere they want.
