Concealed Carry in Restaurants Passes Senate: Smoking Guns Not Allowed!

As a concealed weapons permit holder, there have been times that I have been forced to leave my weapon, reluctantly, in my car to eat lunch or dinner. As a responsible gun owner, I have always been concerned about the security of a weapon left unattended in a vehicle. Now that worry should be gone, assuming the bill finds it’s way to a willing pen in the hands of Governor McDonnell.

The left has argued as if the bill would suddenly allow a gun in a restaurant where they were currently prohibited. That is simply untrue. It is currently legal to carry an unconcealed weapon into a restaurant, something I prefer not to do. Many feel forced by current law to do just that.

Other than exposing three Senators as anti-second Amendment liberals on the issue: Senator Harry B. Blevins (R-14), Senator Thomas K. Norment, Jr. (R-3) and Senator John C. Watkins (R-10), the bill changes little as far as safety is concerned.

Besides, since the ban on smoking in Restaurants went into effect, Smoking Guns would be prohibited in a restaurant.

We are all perfectly safe!

    The same debate happened in Tennessee. Cries of “blood in the streets!” rang to high heaven. And they have actual bars.

    Of course, the bars that wanted to, could restrict weapons from their premises. And 2 days later a murder happened at one of those. By someone illegally carrying.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
