    Lastly before I head home for the day. Last year, before the huge permit application spike this year, we had over 600,000 active permit holders in Florida. So we are not exactly a "very tiny fraction of the population"

    You all have a great weekend!!

    Actually that's still being debated, Supreme Court case coming up this term. Should be interesting with Sotmayor on there now.

    Instead of even addressing these anymore, I'm going to start citing the fallacious arguments:
    Fallacy Of The General Rule:
    assuming that something true in general is true in every possible case. For example, "All chairs have four legs." Except that rocking chairs don't have any legs, and what is a one-legged "shooting stick" if it isn't a chair?

    Similarly, there are times when certain laws should be broken. For example, ambulances are allowed to break speed laws.

    Another thread in a gun-rights forum where many of you don't believe in rights! You don't like people being allowed to carry someplace you don't think they should be, so you're willing to deny them their rights. You even missed a very basic point in your discussion of DUI and driving.

    Driving isn't mentioned in the Bill of Rights -- but the right to "Keep and Bear Arms" is.

    That's okay though, go right ahead and deny a person's right to Constitutionally protected behavior because you don't like it.

    I'm not sure about the date for lawful CCW in Nevada as it predates my moving here from AZ, but I know open carry in bars in Nevada has always been at the discretion of the owner. I have been in bars in rural Nevada and seen armed patrons drinking. Guess what --- no gunfire resulted. As I said, people who carry guns tend to very law-abiding. A simple fact the posters in this thread don't care about.
    Remember, the "blood in the streets" argument was used by the antis when concealed carry really started making its debut in the 80s. It never happened, either.
    I was addressing the 'antis' in this thread--those who would limit Constitutional rights due to their own prejudice against bar patrons. I stand by them being wrong when they start their 'violence will inevitably ensue' arguments.

    Out of 18,328,340, puts that at roughly 3.5% of the poulation. Care to define "tiny?"
    % is probably less in most other states, but I'm growing weary of researching your fallacies.

    Nope. Just don't think their guns should be there. They can come without their guns.

    And there you have it! If you don't like their rights, you think it's okay to deny them.
    When it comes to what should be a right protected by the Constitution and its Amendments your opinion should be of no importance.

    If you don't like carrying where liquor is served don't do so. You still don't have the right to force others to be unarmed victims.

    Yes, it's OK to deny the rright to carry a firearm in a drinking establishment. That's my opinion, and I'm entitled to it, thank you very much.

    Sorry, but as we all know, opinions are like azzholes, everybody has one so one guy's opinion is just as valid as the next.

    I don't and I won't. Nobody's forcing anyone go unarmed into a bar. Like you were suggesting, if you ain't got the stones to go in unarmed, maybe you might consider not going in at all.

    Unfortunately, there are many people like you that only believe in those rights they agree with. I would like to be protected from you.
    Sorry, but as we all know, opinions are like azzholes, everybody has one so one guy's opinion is just as valid as the next.
    No. My opinion is correct, yours is wrong. I say so, and as I said before, my opinion is right while yours is wrong.
    I don't and I won't. Nobody's forcing anyone go unarmed into a bar. Like you were suggesting, if you ain't got the stones to go in unarmed, maybe you might consider not going in at all.
    If the only brave people in society go unarmed then I suggest you go unarmed everywhere, Oh Brave One. I'll continue to follow my own habits, which include going everywhere I legally can, armed. I guess I'm just a cowardly scaredy-cat who needs my CCW to keep me from hiding under my bed.

    If you’re going to research my fallacies why don't you research them completely. Like maybe take into the fact that 6 to 7 million of those are under the age of 21 and can not legally own a handgun or apply for a permit. Or maybe look at how many people or not eligible due to metal defect or criminal background. Then maybe you'll see that the amount of people that can carry and chose to is a little larger then your 3%.

    Once again I'm not saying bar carry is or is not ok I'm just saying we should not jump to quick to deny peoples right because of a personal feeling.
