Infowars- Proving David Hannum right on a daily basis
I beg to differ about the discrimination based on sex. That is NOT what the owner is offering. He didn't say women or females, he said "Ladies" which is a subset of women. Only those who act like ladies get in free. This decision would be based on his personal opinion and could include men like the complainer, except he is NOT acting like a lady. He is acting like a slut who wants anything he can grab and if he can't have it, nobody can.
Does the range require ladies who shoot for free to purchse range ammo, or can they bring their own? If they are shooting range ammo, which is typically more expensive than what you buy elsewhere, the range is recouping some of the fees lost. If that's the case then maybe this guy will agree to purchase range ammo in exchange for range time. JMHO.

Just what is a "special police officer" anyway? Does this guy sue Denny's when an elderly person gets a free cup of coffee next to him? How about handicapped parking spaces. I want to park closer...
I'd rather be lucky than good any day
There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.
Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.

A "Special Police Officer" has limited jurisdiction under Annotated Code of Maryland, Title 3, §3–307 which provides that each special police officer shall protect and preserve peace and good order on the property described in the application for the commission and that the special police officer may:
1. Arrest individuals who trespass or commit offenses on the property described in the application for the commission
2. Exercise the powers of a police officer on the property described in the application for the commission;
3. Exercise the powers of a police officer in a county or municipal corporation of the State in connection with the care, custody, and protection of other property of the entity that requested the appointment of the special police officer or other property, real or personal, for which the entity has assumed an obligation to maintain or protect; and
4. Direct and control traffic on public highways and roads in the immediate vicinity of the property described in the application for the commission in order to facilitate the orderly movement of traffic to and from the property, if the Secretary approves of this activity in advance.
5. Make an arrest or issue a traffic citation for a violation of the Maryland Vehicle Law or any other State or local traffic law or regulation only if the special police officer:
· has a probationary or permanent appointment as a security officer or is a member of an industrial police force; and
· has completed the basic training course for police officers as established by the Police Training Commission in accordance with Subtitle 2, of this title.
6. Exercise the power described above only on the property of the special police officer’s employer as described in the application for the commission, unless the special police officer is in active pursuit for the purpose of immediate apprehension.
In other words, a "Special Police Officer" is a glorified security officer with a "Special" title. The only caveat being that they must complete a basic training course for police officers as established by the Police Training Commission. It is unclear what qualifies as a basic training course under the Police Training Commission but training requirements, in general, can be found in the Code of Maryland Regulations located at http://www.dsd.state.md.us/comar/Sub...rch=12.04.01.*
What a maroon!
I don't carry a gun to look for or start a fight. I carry one to finish a fight I never wanted to be in.
Revolvers, “more elegant weapons for a more civilized age.”
Hmmm I thought "Special Police Officer" was one who rode the "Short" police car to the academy
Sometimes I wonder who the old man in the mirror is....
Lord, Grant me a good sword and no need to use it.
Ladies night free admittance, ladies night free or reduced drinks, etc. There are lots of examples of businesses offering a different "deal" for ladies, there should be some precedents for previous suits. And hey, what about senior citizen discounts? Free drinks at Whataburger..
"Hey I didn't get a winning lottery ticket, I was discriminated against!"
"Hey my kid only had to pay $12 for a ticket to the ball game, why am I being discriminated against?"
I do not think it is discrimination to offer something to one type, but it IS discrimination to deny something to only one type.
Yoda, I am, yes.
Someone should introduce this guy to that lady who sat on the black seat in the middle of summer and sued the Dallas cowboys because it was hot. They would get along well. I just hope they don't get along well enough to pro-create.
