    On this whole, this is a below-average example of your usual sophistry.

    No one should have the authority to keep you from your weapon while on their private property any more then they can keep you from drawing breath.
    That just wouldn't work out. If that applied that interpretation to the 1st Amendment, then private Catholic schools would be required to allow Muslims, bosses wouldn't be allowed to fire employees for dissing them while on the clock, etc etc. Besides it would be an increase in federal govt regulation of the private sector, if that's worth anything.

    I personally refuse to be a member of any of these groups, in the regard members become targets of authoritarians.

    I misread the title of this thread. I mistook the R for a B.

    Considering so many recent events, my reaction was "What?! -- and have nobody attend?"

    Nope. It was something like 2-4 years ago, and my memory isn't that good. It was some kind of CCW/CWP expansion, I think it had to do with guns and bars, or maybe it was guns and schools...maybe both.
