    That letter is a work of art. I would like to save it and shamelessly plagerize it should I ever need to write a similar letter. May I?
    The facts are indisputable. There is more data supporting the benefits of Conceal Carry than there is supporting global warming. If you choose ignorance, in light of all the evidence, in order to bolster your irrational fear of guns, you are a greater threat to society than any gun owner.

    Actually, I was thinking the same thing. I couldn't write a letter of that nature that well.

    I think this is one of the most disturbing things to happen in this country in my lifetime but it seems to get little "press" or discussion. I just can not believe that the Supreme Court ruled this way. Talk about an assault on our rights. This is just unbelievable.

    As far as open carry, it's not something I would care to do "in society". Of course, I have no problem when I'm hiking, fishing, etc. Of course, in Wyoming, we're not permitted to carry in bars. I do think open carry would make a lot of people nervous and would not win friends for "self protection" advocates. Personally, I don't want anyone to know I'm carrying.

    I think the business owner has a right to establish rules for his business and we have a right to "vote with our feet".

    I was a very well written letter, btw.

    Thank your great governor kaine on that one. Virginians(I used to be one) need to not elect antis like him anymore.
    Anyways I'm curious what the reply will be(if any).......

    Unfortunately that is a right that has long since been lost. You cannot refuse service to someone based on race, religion or a number of other factors. Since you could not have someone leave because they were black or because they were wearing traditional arabian garb why should you be allowed to remove anyone who was not creating a disturbance, breaking the law or otherwise being disruptive? Not trying to start a fight === just looking for your reasoning.

    I think you were right to not pay for the meal. When I eat at a restuarant, I don't consider that the food is the only thing being purchased. Equally important are the service, convenience, atmosphere, etc. -- the whole experience. If this were not true then a restaurant would be nothing more than a drive through window. How many times have you eaten in a restaurant even when you know you could make a cheaper, better meal at home?

    If they had attempted to make you pay the bill after asking you to leave then they would be cheating you out of half of what you are actually paying for. I hope that sometime in the near future you will be able to carry concealed in restaurants.

    I didnt say you could do so, I said I liked the idea. I think anybody should be able to refuse service to anyone for any reason. If they dont want a "protected status" persons money, they shouldnt have to take it. The free market will take care of any problems.

    This is the exact reason I pointed out the difference between civil and political rights earlier in the thread.

    Am I close?
