    You're the one not doing the research in implying that a establishment owner would be liable.


    I'm simply helping you get the facts straight.

    For the most part most people in this thread seem to agree that people have a right to carry a gun into a bar. If the owner doesn't want people to be carrying a gun into their bar then they have the right to tell them to "leave it outside" or to have a place to put it while the person is in the bar.

    So...since it is ok for the owner to say weather or not to allow guns into his bar why can the same not be said for smoking? People that go to the bars in Arizona will know that there is a chance that the bar they go to will have guns in it. And will go to that bar or not based on that. Would the same reasoning not also apply to smoking? Those that are against smoking won't go to that bar. Those that don't care will.

    To me this law shows that the owners of an establishment have the right to allow or not allow something to happen in their place of business.
    I'm very against the smoking laws that AZ passed.

    An 8 1/2-by-11-inch sign that says "No Firearms Allowed" and shows a red slash over a gun now hangs next to Henrich's liquor license. If a bar owner does not post such a state-approved sign, people with concealed weapons are allowed in with their guns.
    This I do not approve of at all. That's a violation of the owner's property rights. He does not need a "state-approved sign" in order to refuse people entry or service.

    You're right he doesn't.. but if he wants to get bitchy about someone exercising their second amendment rights in his business.. then he does.

    And get the case thrown out when they can't say why they thought the person had a CONCEALED weapon, because it was.... wait for this.... CONCEALED!

    Re: Guns allowed in Arizona bars starting Wednesday

    If someone is going to get drunk and pull out their concealed weapon and start shooting then how does a law making it illegal to carry in a bar stop that from happening? Especially if its already illegal to drink and carry.

    Laws don't stop people from doing anything. They only punish people after the fact. Therefore, punishing someone who does NOT drink while in a bar is NOT sensible and does NOTHING to combat any type of gun violence.

    The only valid criticism of this law is that law abiding citizens who otherwise wouldn't carry in a bar may carry now. So what? Its still illegal to drink while carrying.
    If you believe in the Supernatural then you can become a millionaire!

    Questioning or criticizing another's core beliefs is inadvertently perceived as offensive and rude.

    A better question is what is the muder rate per capita in Japan. Studies show that the easyer guns are to own and carry, the lower the crime rates... of course they also show the inverse.

    Question: What does the title mean: More Guns, Less Crime?

    John R. Lott, Jr.: States with the largest increases in gun ownership also have the largest drops in violent crimes. Thirty-one states now have such laws—called "shall-issue" laws. These laws allow adults the right to carry concealed handguns if they do not have a criminal record or a history of significant mental illness.
    Interview with John Lott, author of More Guns, Less Crime

    Gun Ownership at All-Time High, New FBI Report Shows
    Violent Crime at a 35-Year Low, Murder at a 43-Year Low



    Over the last two decades, many “gun control” laws have been eliminated or made less restrictive at the federal, state, and local levels. Numbers of privately-owned guns and Right-to-Carry states have risen to all-time highs. Every step of the way, “gun control” groups have predicted violent crime would increase. Instead, the nation’s violent crime rate has been declining since 1991, and in 2008 fell to a 35-year low. In the same period, the nation’s murder rate fell to a 43-year low.

    Less “Gun Control”: The Brady Act’s handgun waiting period expired in 1998, in favor of the NRA-supported National Instant Check System. Some states thereafter eliminated waiting periods or purchase permit requirements. The federal “assault weapon” ban expired in 2004. Since 1987, 30 states have eliminated prohibitory or restrictive carry laws, in favor of Right-to-Carry (RTC) laws; there are now 40 RTC states, an all-time high. All states have hunter protection laws, 48 have range protection laws, 48 prohibit local jurisdictions from imposing gun laws more restrictive than state law, 44 protect the right to arms in their constitutions, and Congress and 33 states have prohibited frivolous lawsuits against the firearm industry.1 Studies by or for Congress, the Congressional Research Service, the Library of Congress, the National Institute of Justice, the National Academy of Sciences, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have found no evidence that “gun control” reduces crime.2

    More Guns: There are 250+ million privately-owned firearms in the United States.3 The number of guns typically rises by about 4.5 million every year,4 though between 2007-2008, firearm transactions cleared by the National Criminal Instant Background Check rose 14 percent.5

    Less Violent Crime: Since 1991, the nation’s violent crime rate has decreased 40 percent (murder, 45 percent; rape, 31 percent; robbery, 47 percent; and aggravated assault, 37 percent. From 2007-2008, the violent crime rate decreased 3 percent (murder, 5 percent; rape, 2 percent; robbery, 2 percent; and aggravated assault, 3 percent.) States with Right-to-Carry laws have lower violent crime rates, on average, compared to the rest of the country: total violent crime by 31 percent, murder, 39 percent; robbery, 55 percent; and aggravated assault, 19 percent. States that have the most restrictive gun control laws tend to have the highest ratios of robberies (confrontational violent crimes) to non-confrontational property crimes. 6

    He can get bitchy about whatever he wants, since its his property. You have no right to be there.
