    It looks like the LameStream Media is going to try and turn this man's stupidity into yet another "Racial Injustice/Anti-Gun" campaign.

    Carrying a loaded firearm into a "Nightclub" where alcohol is being served and egos are at an all time high?
    It also sounds like he was doing a very poor job of 'concealing' his sidearm.
    Not a very good idea.

    Does not sound like he was a very good parent either!
    Overall I would have to say that he's not very bright and probably not the kind of guy that should be carrying a loaded firearm in public i.m.h.o.
    In Minnesota, you don't have to carry concealed, the permits are just a plain Permit to carry. It's up to you on how you want to carry, if the police got on him for carrying that's BS. You can carry in bars here or any place that serves alcohol as long as their isn't a sign posted other wise.

    If the gun was in his waist band he wasn't open carrying, Can't really work up a lot od moral pout-rage over this one

    Interesting concept, last time I checked if I had my firearm in my IWB holster and IT wasn't covered, it still would be open carry. You could plainly see I had a firearm, which is what I thought open carry was. If I had a cover garment over my firearm it magically becomes concealed.

    I live in MN and never heard of this story....down town has turned a little nasty here lately, I wouldn't go there carrying or not but if I were to carry, I may not go to nightclubs with it. The police were wrong in this one, but there have been quite a few shootings at night clubs downtown lately so I'm sure if you come out with a gun in your waist band, permit or not, the police are going to react quickly and not ask many questions first.

    While I think their response may have been a bit harsh before establishing wether or not he had a permit, I put a bit of it on him. He's going to what is most likely a shady club and exits with a gun in his waist band. While there is no law against it, it may not be the smartest move....

    Well if downtown is where you have to go (not to a night club) and I mean "have" to go, then that's the place I would definitely WANT to carry! But that's just me

    His actions appear to be wreckless at best i.m.h.o.

    It also says that his 7 year old son was 'mauled to death' by his pit bull? WTF??
    He does not sound like he was a very good parent either i.m.o. ~SMFH~

    Overall I would have to say that this man does not appear to be very bright and he probably is not the kind of individual that should be carrying a loaded firearm in public i.m.h.o.

    A concealed firearm permit does not give anyone the right to behave wrecklessly, just like a driver license does not give anyone the right to drive wrecklessly.
    Just my .02 cents.

    I have to ask, why?

    Colorado allows one to carry a concealed firearm in locations that serve alcohol as long as you don't consume alcohol and we don't seem to have a real problem with it.
