    I think this about sums it up for me.

    "fundamental principle of American law that a government and its agents are under no general duty to provide public services, such as police protection, to any individual citizen." [Warren v. District of Columbia,(D.C. Ct. of Ap., 1981)]
    If I have to explain it, you wouldn't understand

    When I got the original report from my pal , David Codrea, I read the story and was not surprised. This has been the pattern of late, in Michigan, Texas, Florida and now Virginia; where CCW hasn't created the mass mayhem that the prohibitionists predicted.

    Sooo, I did a little homework and put together an Examiner column on it.

    I think I'll do a quick update and add a link to this thread. I'll have to hook up with Van Cleave for a story in Gun Week... This stuff just kills 'em over at the Brady Campaign.

    Truth and Consequences: Armed citizens behave; antis lose credibility

    Pacific Northwest gun rights activists tracking firearms issues nationwide are taking note of a report in Sunday’s Richmond, VA Times-Dispatch that shows how crime in bars and restaurants has actually dropped in the year since Virginia changed the law to allow concealed firearms in those establishments.

    Ohio just passed Restaurant Carry, no thanks to the Columbus Dispatch and most other big-city rags. If there's no "blood in the bars" a year from now, I expect they'll be quiet too.

    One year from now, you and I should hook up for a review so I can write about it in Gun Week. If I didn't have this stuff to write about, I'd have to sell french fries because I'm no good at anything else.

    I think ol' Sen. McDummie might have a little competition. I heard an ad from a Republican named Ryce something or anotherwho's running for the Va. Senate while driving home this evening.
