A, "trusted friend," may yell, "Back off! My buddy's got a GUN!", with a couple or three under his belt. The aggressor may decide to prove he can handle the guy with a gun, under some liquid courage. Bars, polls, governmental offices, schools, etc., etc., are all places where emotions run very high, at times. Bear in mind that in all but the wildest communities, throughout history, weapons have generally been disallowed at those locations.rotor wrote: ↑Sun Nov 11, 2018 2:21 pmI really don't understand the logic behind the no guns in a bar situation. If you have a LTC and are trusted to not drink and carry why would you not be trusted to go into a bar with friends and have a non-alcoholic beverage or be in a restaurant-bar situation for a nice meal? After all, if you were going to use alcohol you could use it any time anyway. Can LEO go into a bar and not drink? Of course logic and legislation don't always go together and to be honest, I am a non-drinker but I would go to a bar with friends and carry if I could without using alcohol. Same for concealed carry at a voting booth. Why would a LTC carrier all of a sudden be a danger at a voting booth? How many people ever get to be near an execution?
If we disallow carry everywhere, emotions, have run high, in the past, we will never allow carry anywhere. Emotions run high, in homes, at work, at bus stops, in banks, parking lots, grocery stores, basically, anywhere, people go, there have been emotional outbursts, sometimes becoming violent. I carry everywhere, I legally can, so that I can protect me and mine, from those who are not in control of their emotions. Disallowing carry, for fear, that someone, may lose control, is exactly, the reason the left, has chipped away at our rights. Every time someone loses control, the left wants to blame everything, besides, the person responsible. They want to blame the gun, the location, the alcohol, the trauma, the criminal experienced, news stories, ideology, lunar cycles, evil spirits, or anything else they can concoct.
