    Logic, surprising and refreshing.
    I'm not inclined to disarm for a concert, game, (entertainment) and I ain't going on a plane or cruise.

    Sounds like something a gun store would make up

    Referencing another thread and multiple articles, it may be because liberals are out buying guns.

    In LA (Lower AL) Kimberly Clark (very large toilet paper plant) is staying up and running. Airbus is still in operation and shrimp boats are still running. Unfortunately the beaches are all closed but the boat ramps are all open

    I'm flabbergasted. There's so much demand, though, for a variety of reasons, so the politicians keep them open to avoid a riot.

    What's left of them. When the Gov and his Dem Congress passed extremely restrictive and expensive license requirements, they say nearly half of them decided to close up shop.

    Well why not Gov Numbnuts in California said that pot shops were essential and must stay open.
    So why not the LGS in Illinois

    I'm not saying I agree with CA laws on pot, just following their twisted logic: CA law allows for medical marijuana with a doctor's recommendation. So you could say that pot shops do the equivalent of filling prescriptions, so in that sense, they would be akin to pharmacies. Hey, it's CA. Not much makes sense out there.
