    Sure, completely understandable.

    I've gotten used to check points on certain roads at certain times of year. On the one hand the police are pulling you over without first having probable cause, but on the other, they do find many drunk drivers that way.

    I suppose if I were carrying in a "restaurant that served alcohol" on, say, super bowl Sunday, and was pulled aside by cop for a breathalyzer, I wouldn't like it but I really wouldn't like that one drunk idiot who pulls out a gun either.

    I guess if people didn't abuse then the police wouldn't have to step it up.

    Whether smoking should be permitted or not should be the judgemnet of the Owner.

    I live in Reno, NV as well as I have asthma, and before the smoking ban I wouldn't visit places that allowed smoking and I was quite happy with that because before the ban there were many that didn't allow smoking on their own. I didn't feel a ban was necessary at all.
    Not smoking. Smoking is a health risk to those around the belligerent. Bringing a gun in a bar, should be the decision of the owner of the establishment.

    Funny pic, but the comment is a bit irrelevant given that carrying while drinking is still illegal.

    People opposed to gun control should oppose that law. Guns and liquor in a room of drunks is a certainty of unjustifed gun violence. There are MANY people who go red eyed drunk - meaning totally out of their minds. They might not even remember what they did. In that often is violence and total lose of self control and values. It just happens. The trash people redlight clubs I often went to would have been slaughter grounds if guns weren't kept out as an understood rule.

    So once he's good and drunk and stopped drinking, then you give him the gun.

    Do I need to say for the THIRD TIME that it is still illegal to carry a gun while intoxicated??
    And that a bar owner can STILL post his bar "no guns" if he chooses??

    Much like if I don't want someone to bring in their firearm to my home I have the right to tell him to not come in or leave it.

    The Gun owners don't have to go to his bar.


    What you're saying is that you read the thread title, and posted.

    Both the Tennessee House of Representatives and the Senate have overruled a veto by Tennessee Governor Phil Bredesen on a bill that makes carrying handguns into bars legal, it was announced Friday. Consuming alcohol while carrying a handgun will remain illegal, but those with a permit to carry a weapon will be allowed to do so in any restaurant or bar. Owners can still opt to ban handguns from their establishments.
