@Sarah: "If they can't be respectful with words, how are they with a gun?"
Unfortunately, this simply comes with running for office. And no, your analogy does not hold: publicly criticizing (or mocking, even) a public official does not mean one is intending to exact (or even advocating for) violence.
Gun control is the ultimate anti-woman position.
Tir Na NOg Annie, it saddens me that your restaurant has this policy, as I really like your food and I liked bringing family members there. Love the bangers and mash. But I guess you lost my business.
I do have to respectfully challenge what you said: "We had a lot of children in the bar, this is also very much a family restaurant and we get a lot of traffic from Marbles, we are not about to put any of our guests in any form of danger."
What danger were your guests (and, specifically, the children) in? Please be specific, as the devil is on the details.
-That the guy would just start shooting at people for no reason?
-That the gun would somehow go off by itself?
-That the temperature of the food would somehow ignite the gunpowder in some of the cartridges in the pistol, and they would shoot themselves?
"Guns and Alcohol don't mix, keep them out of the bars and clubs for Gods sake."
Was the guy drinking? If so, he was clearly breaking the law and no """gun nut""" would be running to his defense.
I've always found it hilarious how some people argue that, in the case of a violent altercation at a restaurant or bar, all of a sudden concealed carry holders would start pulling their guns and shooting in random directions like in a spaghetti Western movie.
For all the "common sense" talk, you all know this is just a theoretical fantasy, right? Or, can you find clear evidence of this being any type of significant trend? (I mean, there are ~379,000 CCW holders in NC! According to this train of thought, the bodies should be piling up!) Anyone? (Hit "dislike" if you give up)
