Poor idea to loosen gun restrictions
These insane gun laws on tap for the Virginia legislature complete Gov. Bob McDonnell's pandering to the NRA during his campaign. Are all these dudes striding into bars with concealed weapons going to order sarsaparilla? I think not. Are bartenders going to frisk these cowboys before they pour a beer or bourbon?
Anticipate the carnage when nowadays too many disputes are settled not with fists but gunfire.
This is as crazy as allowing guns in cars and boats without a permit and other proposed changes. The rest of us better buy armored vests before we go out to our local bar, drive or visit the lake. A Second Amendment without some logical restrictions is a recipe for disaster.
