Troy I respect your position on gun control. However, would you take a gun into a bar and if so why. It's not responsible to drink and carry a firearm. That being said there could still be a situation come up while a person is intoxicated where they need it. This issue should be left to bar owners to not allow weapons and to patrons to be responsible gun owners and leave the gun in the car or at home.

If I were going to a bar I would definitely carry my concealed gun with me (if it were legal). IMO, you are safe in the bar, it is walking to and from the bar you are not so safe, and that's why I need a gun inside the bar.

I never drink booze or take street drugs.

Many people are illegally armed in bars all the time and no person gets hurt.

But the majority of people that go to bars do drink and when drunk people make stupid dicissions. I have been a bar fight for slipping on a rag on the for and falling into a guy. He was way to drunk to listen to me and if it were leagel for him to have a gun he may have shot me cause I slipped.

Is great that you are a responsible gun owner and I am glad that you carry if you can where your at. I do here in Kentucky and more people should all across America

A drunk may not need a gun to kill you (or just beat the crap out of you).
