10% discount on "New Orleans style food"? I'm in. People open carrying scare me not in the least. And, I'd guess the restaurant would not make an attractive robbery target.

A hero with a concealed carry sidearm opened fire last yr to protect patrons at Cracker Barrel here. Well he tried to shoot his cousin for pissing him off but I'm confident the offensive look or talk was definitely dangerous enough to justify 5-6 rounds fired off.

Fortunately the gun was in the hands of a law-abiding and responsible citizen. Well, right up to the moment he wasn't...and such an exciting moment for all concerned. The NRA just bringing some random excitement to us all. You're welcome.

Well, to be fair, if someone took me to eat, and we ended up at Cracker Barrel, I'd be shooting pissed. Seems justified to me.

In the state of Virginia, gun owners are allowed to openly carry a weapon without a permit, and consume alcohol. Servers are usually careful with those carrying firearms when serving alcohol, Leesburg Police Chief Joseph Price said.

"The individual with a firearm can consume alcohol," Price said, "but when you get intoxicated, that becomes a problem."
 Wow, I support the 2nd amendment and I like a drink or 12 every now and then. Mixing the two is just such a bad idea that there are not enough facepalms on the internet to convey the stupidity.

xenophon10k: I don't trust most other people


That's really the crux of it.

Most people who want guns taken away do so because they don't trust other people. It's a kind of personality disorder on par with the gun nuts who stockpile ammo and chem toilets for Ruby Ridge 2: Electric Boogaloo.

I, on the other hand, trust most people with most things. I've often been drinking with people armed to the teeth with knives and firearms while camping. I've even argued with them heatedly. No one's ever even considered pulling a weapon because that's not what civilized people do.

But instead of making better people, we just try to legislate away our problems these days. It's very much something our grandparents would not approve of.

xenophon10k: I'll eat somewhere else. I'll be honest, I don't trust most other people with anything more dangerous than string.


Pretty much this. If the average person spent a couple of hours at the range each week then it wouldn't be such a big deal. It's the people who think guns are easy to shoot in a high intensity situation that scare me. They're just as likely to hit a bystander as they are their intended target.

The same goes for high capacity magazines. I'm less worried about the 15th round in the magazine that finally found its mark and saved you from your attacker than I am about the first 14 that found a different mark.

Open carry in public for no reason is retarded. Attention whores.

Ah yeah, open carry, so the impulse criminal knows all he has to do is bash you in the head with a rock and suddenly he has a gun.  Sun Tzu disapproves strongly.

Yet it's completely legal in dozens to states to be fall down drunk and still armed, yet hasn't been any kind of significant problem in the couple hundred years it's been allowed by law.

Absolutely, but they aren't trying to limit what other people do to quiet their terrors. Just modifying their own behavior.

xenophon10k: I'll eat somewhere else. I'll be honest, I don't trust most other people with anything more dangerous than string.


The question is "where else to eat"?  Sure, the place with the 'gun night' will have a higher proportion of gun carriers than other restaurants.  But, by the percentages of people with concealed guns in my state, I can be reasonably confident there are at least a half-dozen guns around any time I'm in a relatively full restaurant.  The concealed carriers I know don't pay the slightest attention to door signs without metal detectors ("nobody will know I'm carrying, unless I get to be a big damned hero, then nobody will care").

Once you start realizing that 10% or more of people are carrying around you, pretty much anywhere unless you work in an airport, you start rethinking a few things.

A) If it were really that dangerous, there'd be a lot more shootouts than we currently have.

but

B) Probability suggests that there weren't at least a half-dozen guns in the Aurora movie theater when James Holmes started shooting.  Nobody pulled one.  Making me think that, even among gun carriers, "get the fark out of here" is the natural response to such a situation, not "big damned hero".

I work in the financial district of San Francisco.

I can assure you that 1 in 10 of the people around me, even when I walk outside to get lunch, are not carrying firearms.

I'm pretty sure that the right couple of criminals could walk into that place and help themselves to every one of those guns, too.

It's sad to me that there are people who sit in restaurants and worry that it may get robbed.

The thought has never occurred to me once in 42 years.

I've also never been in a situation where deadly force was neccessary to protect my life, or the lives of those around me.

Between 800 and 1000 gun-shot deaths per year are classed as accidental. If they were all to the person who was clumsily or negligently handling the weapon, I would say this is a good thing (Darwin Award candidates), but all too often somebody else catches the bullet.

Should have earned the HERO tag.

Every day they take more money and more freedom away from us, under the excuse "--it's for your own good!"

Every day we put up with it, because this country is a nation of wussies.

You Farkers loudly defend the use of marijuana, but when it comes to the right of self defense your silence is deafening.

Double standard as usual, or just a yellow belly.
