    Sounds like Mr. Helmke is saying that there wasn't an issue until people became aware of & began exercising their rights. :righton:

    There wasn't an issue as long as their side was winning.

    So some people want bars to be gun free zones.
    Maybe they can also make them "assault-free zones" while they're at it.
    And PLEASE tell us HOW they intend to enforce the "no committing felonies against your disarmed fellow patrons" law?
    By the way, when I lived in New York State, there was no law against carrying in bars, but the county that issued the permit could add their own local rules, and many of them did have that restriction. Violation of the restriction was not a crime, but could get your permit revoked.
