So, if I work six days a week and would like to enjoy a beer at a restaurant on my one day off, why is that your business? Worry about yourself, I'll talk care of myself. Do you really think that morons that choose to drive drunk are dissuaded in anyway with the laws we have now? All that's happening now, is Winchester is losing money and opportunities because of poorly thought out strawman arguments like yours. It's actually more dangerous now because the drunk drivers are driving longer distances on the roads to avoid an antiquated set of thinking that does nothing but punish people for what they might do.

Gardner Wages wants this to pass in order to keep a good reputable relationship within the country club. The CC has always sold their liguor no matter what day of the week it was but now the members there want it to be legally available when they want to consume it. Tuesday night's are Bridge nights and you should see the ladies that leave there afterwards drunk as hell. If a cop or two would monitor that club on Tuesdays then some very high class and reputable people would be named in the court section of the paper or a few cops would make some very interesting bribes disappear into their pockets.

Alcohol sales will not make or break a business.If you can't make it with out Sunday sales just close the doors. Did anyone read the paper and see the bigger business men just don't care.
I think it is a local thing.Someone wanted it and they got it. Politics!

Alcohol sales on Sunday should be the norm, most all other cities is any size has it; it's just business sense and helps the economy of the city.

It does not matter who is pushing for this to pass. It also makes no difference if you imbibe in alcoholic beverages or not. Private business should be allowed to compete with surrounding businesses in terms of alcohol sales on a Sunday. If you, as a free-willed individual, would like to eat a meal at a restaurant, and have a glass of wine, or a cocktail, OR beer, one should not have to drive to Lexington. Nor should restaurants in the archaic law should be restricted from selling an otherwise legal product. And furthermore, as for this religious aspect, Jesus drank wine on Sunday, as do a lot of church parishioners every Sunday. Don't want a beer, don't have one, ANY day of the week. However do not tread upon anyone else's free will do such, business owner, or patron.

This sounds good. They have already stepped on the rights of smokers. Now there is very few places where a smoker is not treated as a second class citizen. I don't smoke and I still see the wrongs done to them. This state use to be a leader in tobacco.
