Guns in Bars: What Could Go Wrong? – Yahoo News

The legislation will allow guns in places of worship, sporting events, bars, and yes, schools. Clearly they’ve learned nothing since Newtown, or since any of the approximately 50 school shootingsmore than three a month—in the last 17 months. Of course those attacks happened because those schools were “gun-free zones.” We can’t go blaming the easy access to guns for any yahoo with a Ted Cruz tattoo, which is clearly why we’re seeing the same epidemic of school shootings in, say, the Netherlands or Australia.

This bucket of warm spit is a perfect example of the “logic” of leftist gun grabbers.  Georgia is crazy for allowing law abiding citizens to carry legally wherever they would like to do so, as is provided for in the Second Amendment to the US Constitution.

Why do leftists consider this idea crazy?  Well, because banning guns in certain places prevents them from being used for criminal purposes.  Like at Newtown, where stolen guns were not used illegally to commit mass murder in a location where gun possession was specifically banned.  Oh, wait….

Or maybe like in Colorado, where twice crazies committed mass murders with firearms in places where firearms were banned.

Or, as sane people like to call gun-free zones:  “Free fire zones.”

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

  1. The legislation will allow guns in places of worship, sporting events, bars, and yes, schools. Clearly they’ve learned nothing since Newtown, or since any of the approximately 50 school shootings—more than three a month—in the last 17 months. Of course those attacks happened because those schools were “gun-free zones”.

    (Emphasis added)

    Yes – yes, in very nearly every case, they did – coupled, of course, with the clear facts that a) sometimes, nutballs (or just plain bad people) get hold of guns and, for a variety of reasons – none of them due to simply having access to guns, also clearly – they go to one of those handy, dandy “gun free zones” (whether actually posted as such, or not) and proceed to shoot up the place, including any and all persons present.

    Where such “zones” occasionally have someone readily present who is responsibly armed, of course, the shooters don’t get very far – but, by all means, let us ignore that in the course of your little rant – mustn’t allow actual factual evidence to besmirch your finely-tuned bullshit, hey?

    (Y’know, whenever I see one of these little tantrums of rampant asininity, it always brings to mind: Does it never occur to clowns who even think – much less actually write – hysterical manure such as this that maybe, just maybe there are some brave folks who, since most such “gun-free zones” are not openly-posted as such, go ahead and go armed, legally or not, in such places, so as to be better-assured of at least some on-the-ground protection in case of urgent need – and that all this sort of law does is protect said folks from being unnecessarily exposed to arrest, trial and unwarranted punishment? Or, alternately, that actual criminals routinely go armed in such places, regardless, and that enabling lawful concealed carry thereabouts would produce some deterrent effect, as well as affording some possible immediate assistance in case of need, rather than having to depend entirely on the somewhat-tardy arrival of The Blue-Suited Cavalry, at least eight to ten long, long minutes after being called, if not longer?

    No – no, I don’t suppose boneheads like that can even conceive of the idea of either lawful deterrence or interim intervention by a Good Guy. After all, everyone knows that guns, whenever and wherever present, are merely awaiting the slightest opportunity to leap into independent, blood-splattering action, and that there’s simply no such thing as a “Good Guy With A Gun”, whether concealed or not…)

  2. Based upon some prior circumstances I choose not to recount here, BTW, I do not regularly have a very favorable view of the (Not So) Great State of Georgia – however, the passage of the particular item of law referenced has served to alter my viewpoint in a somewhat-positive direction. We shall see, however, just how this new law is handled on a Statewide basis – the early media reports appear to indicate that, in certain locales, the Minions Of Enforcement and/or Prosecution may not be all that prepared to accept and to follow the law as plainly written. “Selective/elective law-enforcement” may prove to be somewhat problematic in the matter – we shall see…
