There is no such thing as 100% effective birth control. Even surgical sterilization has a failure rate. Extremely low, but it has one.
Everyone is praying that yours was effective.
Even the atheists.

Now I know the resident gun nut, Race, is not this nutty, but this is the kinda person that gives peeps like Race a bad name.

Question for you, Race. If you were out with friends, and it was discovered that you were carrying and they would not let you in, would you

a) go lock it in the car then head into the bar
b) convince your friends to go somewhere else (and hope that somewhere else does not notice you're carrying)
c) move on(or go home) without your friends (either because you don't want to make them go somewhere else or because they don't want to leave just cause of you and your gun)

I hope they take this woman's gun away. IMNSHO, she's way too skittish to be in possession of a firearm.

wtf? She had a chair under the door? So what's the message? Grandsons are fair game for any intruders, but don't even think of getting in MY room?

First off, you cannot take your weapon into a bar(in FL), so If I knew I was going to a bar, I would not have my weapon on my person.
But you can bring your weapon into a restaurant, even if it has a bar as long as you do not sit at the bar. In this case I doubt their wold be bouncers, but if there were, and I was told I could not enter with my weapon, I would put it in my vehicle. The business has a right to refuse you entry, even if you have the right to carry.

Most malls have a sign stipulating no weapons. It's a CYA thing for them. I ignore these signs because I never see them, and if challenged, I can only be asked to leave, which I would fully comply with.

Ha! I was thinking that the grandsons were in the room with her and were suppose to be taking a nap, too. It doesn't say that, but I assumed.(I know, I know about assuming.)
In any event, you have locked doors AND you put a hair on the door AND you have a gun within reach with young boys nearby?
Not smart and very paranoid. Those boys could have gotten their hands on that gun while she was sleeping.
Although, heh, probably not -- they were more apt to be shot dead.

I know you would comply as you've stated before. I just was not sure if you meant that you would stow the gun away in your car or that being without it would be so uncomfortable for you that you would just choose not to go in at all. You ARE the guy who walks around his own house strapped.

I don't think a business should be allowed to deny you your right to carry. They're not allowed to deny service to gays, why are they allowed to deny service to cc-ers?

Public safety.

If a gay woman gets in a fight with her GF and tempers fly, I may be at risk of being hit with a glass of water or a flying plate.

If a cc guy gets in a fight with his friend and tempers fly, I am at risk of a stray bullet. the scope of potential harm an is balanced against eh minimal inconvenience of putting the weapon back in the car.

There is no law that says a person without a shirt or shoes cannot be allowed in a restaurant but there are "No shoes, no shirt, no service" signs everywhere which is enforced.

The rationale is public health.

Sometime when you live in a society- an aggregation of people with competing interests- you can't fully exercise all your rights all the time.

What P said.

There is no compelling reason to deny service to gay people. Prejudice is not a compelling reason.

There are good grounds why some businesses may not want armed people in their place of business. I think this is especially true when the place serves alcohol. I don't think it is a good idea for people to be drinking in public and be armed.

Not buying it. It's prejudice against something you don't like, plain and simple, no different than being prejudiced against gays

I don't like being unarmed, but I accept that there are places where I cant carry. I am not going to skip out on my friends because they want to go to a bar (but that is rare nowadays anyway), so I would leave it secured in the car.

If you drink responsibly you are no more a danger to someone else as a tea drinker.
Just because I drink wine with my dinner should not preclude me from carrying, but I agree that it is not wise when wine becomes my dinner.

I don't like the idea of a bunch of drunks carrying, but I dont support the law disallowing it, I just comply with it.

Disagree, you are implying that because there is the potential for serious harm from a firearm it should be disallowed. But why stop there? Disallow Knives, and pointy sticks too. No Steak knives, unbreakable plates and glasses because any of those things can be used to cause serious harm if someone looses their temper.

Fact is, its not about safety, its about hysteria.

How are you any safer sitting at a sidewalk cafe that disallows guns while the cafe next door allows them?
