    This must be a big disappointment to The Virginian Pilot. They are so anti- that I had to drop my subscription because it made me puke. I do miss the comics, but not their editorials or their slanted news coverage.

    In Texas this is not a problem unless 51% of sales is from alcohol.

    Which I still don't get. Make it illegal to drink and carry a gun, but why make it illegal to carry a gun and be near alcohol? Can you get drunk from being near alcohol? Is it impossible to go to a bar and not drink? Sorry for the rant, just if people are determined to drink AND carry at a bar, they'll do it regardless of the law. Why leave the designated drivers (or those who just do not like to drink, but want to socialize with friends) unarmed?

    It's because hoplophobes believe the gun will get drunk, jump out of your holster and start shooting people. Because guns and alcohol don't mix....you MUST keep them away from each other....

    Hitler once said, The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subject races to possess arms. History shows that all conquerers who have allowed their subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by so doing.

    Done. Pretty safe bet that there is no mention of the poll not going their way in their next article. Probably say it was hacked or something. Anti's can never admit when they are wrong... Or get decimated worse than the Colts in a Poll !!!!

    I voted in the poll. 85% = YES!

    Had there been a comments section I too would have made a comment of something along the lines of: "So long as they are not drinking because I go there to EAT."

    As for gun in bars, the one thing that I see regarding this subject is that no one realizes the basic rule here. In every situation where a CCW carrier is present there is AT LEAST one gun right there. Bars tend to bring out horrible manners in people. Liquid courage does that. Now inject a gun into the mix and you may have a tendency to have some increase in incidents with a gun. Not because the carrier is the problem but because there are some drunks who won't know to back off before they get in too deep.

    Yes, people who carry should not be where there are potential problems if they can avoid it. However, does that mean that I can't take my family to a local restaurant that has a bar on the off chance that some drunk in the bar may become belligerent?

    The whole issue is one where 2 mindsets collide. Both are right. And both are wrong.

    Voted yes

    They should outlaw alcohol in bars. That would stop all of those belligerent drunks...
