“A lot of states for a long time have not felt the need to say you could or couldn’t do it,†said Paul Helmke, president of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence. “There weren’t as many conceal-carry permits out there, so it wasn’t really an issue.†Now, he said, “the attitude from the gun lobby is that they should be able to take their guns wherever they want. In the last year, they’re starting to move toward needing no permit at all.â€
Sounds like Mr. Helmke is saying that there wasn't an issue until people became aware of & began exercising their rights. :righton:

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.
