Well, history has shown that the best way to combat gun violence is to post a "No Guns Allowed" sign.

The only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. This has been the mantra of the NRA after every mass shooting. Just the other day I saw some NRA guys talking about how churches being a gun free zone is what caused the Charleston shooting.

If only one of the nine victims had been carrying a weapon this disaster could have been averted. Look at this picture of the victims

If only one of those sweet little old ladies would have been carrying a weapon. She could have pulled it put of her purse and shot that little punk.

Yes, She could have. And I've often wondered why more law-abiding blacks won't exercise their 2nd amendment rights. With the super high rates of black on black crime and supposed police profiling, you'd think they want to.

meanwhile in other news that the Kenyan in Chief hasn't mentioned....http://www.baltimoresun.com/news/maryland/crime/blog/bs-md-ci-shootings-homicides-20150511-story.html .

See, The thousands of killings every year just aren't newsworthy because it doesn't fit the MSM narrative of crazy white males with confederate battle flags killing blacks for no good reason at all. This has to be harped on constantly (24-7 for months on end) so that aging self hating hippies (that didn't have the balls to go to Vietnam) can keep being 'down with the struggle' against Jim Crow and point out that every once in a while white people sometimes commit violent crime too.

But, back to the point.... What caused the shooting was The kid was a nut. From what I understand he shot them with a .45 and submitted to a background check. So, he legally had the firearm, It would be no different than a guy getting a driver's license, buying a car and then riding down the sidewalk running people over.

Gun control laws won't work in the US. So, unless you're prepared to ban all private ownership of firearms, which ain't happening (yet) and turn the country into even more of a police state than it already is, it's a moot point.

This isn't Europe. If you took all the guns out of private hands in America, you'd have gangs of thugs roaming around committing acts of violence cart blanche.

One of the female victims is a former co-worker of my wife. She wasn't a "little old lady," but perhaps she could have had a chance at survival if she was armed. If it was one of your relatives, then I'm sure you'd feel the same.

If you owned a taxi company, would you invite your employees and customers to bring guns into your cars?

Remember, if a shooting occurs and you have advertised that guns are welcome you might get sued in a civil action.

Why should you care that a private business adopts a no gun policy?

Back in 1881 when residents of Tombstone, Arizona got tired of drunk Cowboys shooting up the streets and instituted a "no guns in town" policy, where they wrong?

Seems like we had a time in American history when everyone carried and it was violent as hell.

I know that I wouldn't want to go drinking at a saloon if a bunch of drunk people with guns were inside. Those assholes would pull out their pistols and start shooting up the ceiling if someone told a good joke.

You guys want our society to be like the American West of the 1880s?

AA,

I was the bartender at a nearby Marine Corps League Detachment for a couple of years. The whole time I was the bartender, a lot of bar goers came with pistols either displayed or concealed.

Never once was any pistol pulled out, other than to show me or other people present what kind of firepower that they were carrying. Done either by request of me or another Marine, or if that pistol was being sold to another Marine.

You may or may not not know the way Marines love bar brawls. Or did love them. Not quite sure about Marines enlisted in the past few years.

Anyway, there was one fight while I was bartender, which I recall very well. A member of the MCL Det. decided that even though I was standing right across the bar from my wife, he thought that it would be fine if he groped her.

I escorted him out of the back hatch, and proceeded to beat him to the balcony deck. Then he 'fell' off of the deck, to the ground below. Neither of us pulled out our pistols during that beat down.

For some reason, after that day, he never returned to that bar.

Anyway, plenty of guns in that bar. None ever pulled out of anger.

That little tussle happened last year.

In this state, after going to a class on concealed carrying, and not having done a felony, anyone 21 years of age or older can get their concealed weapons permit. If any one that has reached the age of 21 and that person doesn't have a felony conviction in their record wants to carry unconcealed, they are permitted to carry their pistol in a holster, unconcealed.

There are 5 banks in this town. For the past 12 years, since I came out here, there have been no bank robberies. Not hard to figure out why.

Also, in the school system, the teachers can go to the class on carrying concealed, paid for by the school system. After completion of that 2 day course, they are encouraged to have their pistols with them at all times, while on school property.

How many shooting deaths within the city for the past 12 years, since I came out here?

Zero.

I suppose that any criminal that might pass through here realizes that just maybe it just isn't worth trying to do their shenanigans here. At least they realize that even Granny might be packing. Maybe they should go to California or NYC, if they want to be using a firearm in their committing of a crime.

This state does have a regulation that states that the cities decide whether carrying a firearm is legal. This city decided awhile back that personal defense IS important.

Firing a firearm within the cities limit is illegal, except in self defense. Since firearms are rather loud, I have purchased a .22 caliber pellet gun, useful in the taking down of varmints. It is rated to be powerful enough to take down varmints.

It came with a 4x32 scope, with a laser /spotlight attached.

Much quieter, after the first 250 .22 pellets were fired.

The cops? They don't mind if I kill varmints. As long as it is quiet. Since my front and backyard seems to be a smorgasbord of delicious treats for anything from skunks on up through 'possums and 'coons, it has become my own private free fire zone for critters.

'This is my rifle. There are many like it, but this one is mine' ...

Completely Agree. The Old West had to be a really scary place with hardly any standing police departments and Guns and bad guys with Confederate flags everywere and stuff.

But, back to the topic..... I think Uber should require all its drivers to only use Electric cars. Because, 5 Gallons of Gasoline has the destructive power of a stick of dynamite. And, I think the Government should pass laws requiring people to submit to a background check and take a class on safe handling procedures and get permits before they can be allowed to buy something as dangerous as gasoline....

What if some Racist White supremacist maniac from the Klan, got their hands on some gasoline and decided to burn down a house or god forbid torches a crowded theater by turning it into a raging inferno?

A responsible government wouldn't be giving the power of life and death like this to everyone!!!

Ahhh.....you have a good memory of old Hollywood Western films. Tell me, how many news stories do you hear about concealed permit carriers who decided to "shoot up" the establishments they've carried their guns into. I've heard of one in the past 5 years...a retired cop who shot some asshole in a movie theater. That's it. All of the other shooting incidents were from people who are not CCW holders, not NRA members, or otherwise interested in obeying any existing gun laws or "guns not allowed" signs.

Flaps,

Been a CCW permit holder for 6+ years. Not once have I had to pull my weapon, for any reason. While I was fishing once, I was asked by a conservation agent if I carried concealed. I answered in the affirmative, and he told me that was fine, and that he didn't need to see my concealed weapon.

While I was at the range to do my 'qualification training', I drew a smily face on the target, using my shots downrange to do the artistry. The instructor looked at my pre-qualification warm up round placement, then he signed off on my paperwork.

While I was in Augusta, Ga, prior to moving here, I hung up a target that I had shot a few days prior, for the Halloween festivities, on my front porch. All of the holes in the target were either in the head or in the heart.

Prior to that Halloween, my front porch seemed to be the place to go, to steal anything out there. Trash cans, flower pots, etc..

After that Halloween, the thievery stopped. Completely.

Peace through superior firepower!

Actually Flaps that 71 year Old man did us a really big public service. These days there's really a lot more courtesy in the movie theaters down here, I noticed the last time some asshole was texting during the movies, When I politely asked him to put his phone away, He didn't mouth off or threaten me or even try to attack me (like that punk ass did), He just simply said, Yes Sir, No problem and just put it away.

I know It seems like a crazy concept ..... But, I think If you don't attack the old people, then they don't seem to want to shoot you...

Sounds like you got lucky. You physically assaulted someone who you knew was carrying a weapon. Lucky for you he decided to de-escalate the situation. What if he had pulled out his gun in "self-defense" similar to what George Zimmerman did when he was getting a beat down? At that point your only option would have been to shoot him or let him shoot you. Your example, seems like the exact reason you wouldn't want people carrying weapons in a bar. The second someone starts losing a fight they can claim they fear for their life. If both people are packing someone is going to die.

You are forgetting about the magical aura that encircles concealed carry permit holders.

The fact that they have a permit mysteriously counter acts bad judgement, even if they have been drinking or are in an emotional state from a bar fight.

Actually, I'm surprised that the gun permit allowed him to exercise bad judgement to grope a lady in the first place.

That sort of thing rarely happens in Gun Town. Usually the concealed carry permit sends a signal to the cowpoke's brain, and he tips his ten-gallon-hat at the lady instead of grabbing her ass.

AA,

I quit doing the bartending thing. Since I don't drink, and I don't allow drunks to hang out at my house, the chance of drunken gun play in my case has been lessened by far.

Cops live down from the corner on which I live one way about 200 feet, and about 400 feet on the other street.

When hunting season for either turkeys and ducks, or for deer arrives, it is not unusual to see hunters at the nearby restaurants carrying their shotguns and rifles in with them.

I do wonder why they think that turkeys, ducks, and deer come into those restaurants for a meal, but since the hunters are sometimes gun happy, I haven't asked them about that.

A bunch of animals that I won't shoot is this groundhog and her family. They were here before I got here, so we have become friends. She and her family will come up to me to see if I am bringing out some whistlepig approved food.

Well, maybe she has passed on. I know that this sounds animal type racist, but they all look the same to me!

I believe you missed the part where our good old Uncle Rastas said "I was the bartender" and "he thought it would be fine if he groped her" ...... Now, The bartender is the individual that is responsible for maintaining the safety of the patrons. I believe you Code Pink Ladies North of the Mason Dixon line like to refer to them as a mixologist or a cocktail shaker.....

But,anyhow If it helps just Think of the bartender as sort of a benevolent agent of the government kicking your ass because they love you.....

If you really think a man should de-escalate a situation when someone cops a feel on his wife, then you need to check your wife's purse, Because, I think you left your balls in there again. Nomsayin?

If i owned a car company, yes i would have no problem if my drivers Or the customers were legally armed and carried. Much better for everyone's safety than not being armed.
As to your other point.. what about those who advertize gun free zones? Are they not MORE liable if someone gets shot there, cause no one was armed and able to defend the victims?

You hicks from rural Ohio have a tradition of stealing each other's guns from your cars?
