Check Your Gun Sir?
The Arizona Senate has voted to allow people take guns into bars and restaurants, if the establishments don't deny them permission and if the bearers aren't drinking alcohol.
Supporters say that the current law, which prevents this, deprives law-abiding citizens of the means to protect themselves and others. It also subjects their guns to the risk of theft, if they're left in vehicles parked outside bars or restaurants.
Under the bill, backed by the National Rifle Association, people could carry weapons into bars and restaurants that don't post notices prohibiting it. Not surprisingly it is opposed by law enforcement groups and organisations representing bar and restaurant operators.
I would imagine that service improves dramatically in establishments where the customers are wielding a firearm.
