People with licenses to carry concealed guns could take their firearms into restaurants that serve beer and wine under a bill that zipped through a Senate committee Wednesday. Full Story

That the editor is against concealed carry has always been obvious but could the paper at least try to be honest in the articles about it, please?

Headline, "Bill would allow guns in bars"

Reality, "The bill would apply only to establishments that derive at least 60 percent of their income from food eaten on the premises."

Then again maybe the editor has a different definition of bar than the rest of the world. It seems this bill is only about being able to eat dinner at a place that serves alcohol and not about guns in bars.

It should be up to the owner of the property, not some scumbag politicians.

But that only happens in a free country.

So, they are concerned about possibly serving alcohol to someone who MIGHT have a gun...but think nothing of serving alcohol to someone with a 1 ton vehicle? Give be a break! CCW holders have training and respect for guns and have been cleared by the FBI to have the license.

More on that. The holder of the CCW also must not consume alchoholic beverages on the premises during the visit. This indicates "a sober and resposible" restaurant visit.

You're right on with that type of thinking there. Actually, I carry a Glock and I have a one ton vehicle so that makes me an especially responsible citizen.

I sure hope this passes, I am tired of having to worry about my gun in my car, and as I don't drink in restaurants or "bars", I am not too worried about accidentally ordering a drink. I am waiting for the flood of chicken little wannabees to show up.

In Killeen Texas a man drove his truck into a Lubbys and started shooting people, he had three rifles and a hand gun.Lucky a man eating there had a gun and shot him ,if not many more would have been hurt or killed.

somebody with a gun - often drinking - kills a friend or family member. This is a much more common scenario and a bigger thing to worry about that than the remote chance that another nut with a gun will start shooting randomly and that another bunch of armed drinkers will make the situation any better.

you would be amazed at how dumb texans are and how much they buy into the Wild West myth. You go to downtown Houston and every third person is wearing a cowboy hat.

Where do you get "...the editor is against concealed carry has always been obvious..."? Steve Terrell is a reporter from the "Santa Fe New Mexican" and the ADN title reflected the article. I have never seen the editor of ADN voice an opinion on guns in bars; or even guns for that matter. You are stirring up false opposition so you can whine about being mistreated.

The only thing this will help is to lower the arrest numbers of professional athletes.

How can you possibly say "the ADN title reflected the article"? This bill has absolutly NOTHING to do with BARS. It's about responsible, legal carry in restaurants that server liqour. Whether ADN is pro-carry or against, could they at least be accurate? Not bloody likely.

I remember carrying my pistol in the open at many bars and restaurants in Nevada. I did not see any "wild west shootouts". Unless they changed the law there, you can carry concealed as long as your BAC is below .10.

CCW Holders Licence's are Not Valid when the holder comsumes Alcohol, If People would read the Laws pertaining to Concealed Handgun licence's before they Comment would not comment in a bad way, Most people posting about subject's like this one really have Not a Clue what they are talking about in the first place, Most New Mexicans don't even know that A CCW licence is NOT REQUIRED for a person Open-Carrying And not otherwise disqualfied from owning a handgun!
