Because People in power are Stupid: There's nothing better than getting drunk and waving a pistol around. Then I lead the police on a quick chase into my exwife's trailer which I then leave. As the police are kicking in the front door, I sneak 'round the side and pull the brick out of the corner that holds the whole thing up. The trailer comes down and it is glorious. My ex-wife now has grounds to sue the cops. I quickly hide my pistol in the grill and get my brother in law to vouch for me. I was never at the bar; it was someone who looked like me.


Oh man, that's happened to you too?

Firethorn: Plus, why prohibit in a public playground when it would be the adults carrying, and not the street they walk down to get there?  Why not the grocery store?  Daycare?


I think you should be allowed to carry a gun wherever you need to feel safe, which is apparently everywhere.  shiat, you should be allowed to carry twelve guns if you feel you have to.  It's your right.  You never know when a school play could turn ugly.

You know what else we need?  Turrets.  More turrets in strategic locations like playgrounds or kindergartens and we would be even safer.  Maybe a couple at the churches, too, to protect our religious freedoms from Sharia law.

Peter von Nostrand: Pointing out that stupid laws are stupid doesn't equate to freaking out and acting like it's the end of the world but I'm sure you already knew that and were just feeling a little a bit derpy for a few seconds


Yes.  It's suddenly so clear that it's stupid to legalize the carrying of firearms by licensed individuals in bars and parks because....  Umm... Fark says so?  Oh, I know.  It's because in all the other states where it's already legal there were sudden up swings in bar and playground shootings by CHL holders... Hang on, someone just handed me something.  Hmmm.. Apparently that last claim about shooting sprees is completely false and that didn't happen.

Wait... hang on.. Don't Obama supporters try to claim he's not anti-gun because he legalized carry in National Parks?  OMG!  GUNS IN PARKS!!  OBAMA'S STUPID NUR NUR NUR!!

Try to pass a law legalizing carry while drinking? Yeah, that's stupid.  Making it illegal to carry simply because you are in the same room as alcohol?  Heck, the only way that makes sense is if you believe that inanimate objects have the power to... Oh, never mind.  Suddenly it makes sense.

Firethorn: pueblonative: Some black woman was told SYG applied to her, She got 20 years for standing her ground going into the house of a guy she put a restraining order on and firing randomly in the air because she apparently feared more for her life from the miller moths than the guy she said was threatening her.

I'm somewhat familiar with that -
1.  He also had a restraining order against Her.  She violated that going to his house
2.  He was on the phone with 911 when she left, came back, and yelled "I've got something for you!" before shooting at him(and angle wasn't in the air; that was some bullshiat claim she tried to make; holes in drywall say angle much more horizontal).
3.  20 years was the mandatory minimum for her crimes; the prosecutors offered 3 for popping off in the direction of her own kids, for some reason she didn't take it.


Well the important thing is that her 2nd Amendment rights weren't violated.

FirethornFirethorn: mod3072: I just don't think that it is proper justification to put a new law on the books.

Thing is, this isn't really a 'new law on the books', it's a revision to existing law where they're shortening the list of prohibited places to CCW.

Soup4Bonnie: I think you should be allowed to carry a gun wherever you need to feel safe, which is apparently everywhere. shiat, you should be allowed to carry twelve guns if you feel you have to. It's your right. You never know when a school play could turn ugly.

Huh?  Dude, you're not even good at constructing a strawman because you can't attack my real standings.

My sole point is that if you're going to issue CCW licenses, you shouldn't get nitpicky about banning carry in XYZ more or less random areas that have no more security or safety/danger attributes than ABC other places.

Plus, well, I don't like the idea of leaving a firearm unattended outside of a security container(and a car doesn't count), and due to the distance between my home and town I tend to batch up my trips, you know?  If I want to carry because I'm going to the theater(Aurora), I might as well carry at the restaurant(Lubbys), the grocery and hardware stores, etc...

When I carry, and I don't carry all the time, I carry ONE gun with ONE magazine.  Most cops, who have ready backup, carry at least 3 magazines, and many have a backup gun.  If I'm actually expecting trouble I don't go.

Pincy: I just jizzed my pants reading that sentence.

Eww...

KeatingFive: Pointing out that something is stupid isn't "freaking out and acting like it's the end of the world. ". Just like reasonable restrictions on firearms doesn't mean OBAMA IS COMIN FER YER GUNS!

Okay, please explain why a specific prohibition on carrying in a playground or park, or at a bar where you're not legally allowed to get drunk anyways if you're carrying, when it's legal to carry at those locations in other states and they haven't had an excess of problems with legal CCW carriers in those location ...

Marijuana is illegal and you will go to jail in most states sitting in your living room in your underwear smoking a joint.

In North Carolina you can have a loaded, concealed handgun party at a bar and a loaded, concealed gun reception at a children's playground. Completely legal.

Still can't smoke a joint there, though.
