A law just recently passed that allows people to carry guns in restaurants. Now I am not naive enough not to realize that people were already carrying them into restaurants before. I just don’t know how smart it is to allow people to just carry them on their side like in the old west. Do not get me wrong, I own a gun myself but keep it at home and in a case away from my children.
Just think about all of the horrible things that have happened in restaurants in the past. Also, just imagine a child getting hurt by one of these guns that are just there for anyone to grab or misfire.
Now the law states that the person carrying the gun is not allowed to consume alcohol while being armed. It is just a matter of time before someone tells one of these people that they can not have a beer and the gun comes out. I know that it seems far fetched but it will happen in some capacity.
I know that most of the people with carry permits are going to do the right thing but all it takes is one person to make this law NOT WORTH IT!
What do you think? Do you like the idea of guns being around you or your family while they are eating dinner? Do you think that it is OK? This is all just my opinion since I have kids and I am responsible for lots of others in the restaurant that I work at.
