Seen in Minneapolis:
The fact that they needed to make it explicit somehow fails to reassure me.
I wonder how many people (who carry guns) actually obey the signs? I mean, if they choose to enter the mall, and of course they choose to on a daily basis, then how is this enforced?
I guess it can’t be enforced –which is why I find the signs disturbing.
If my neighbour had a sign in his door saying “No wifebeater lives here”, I’d start to wonder about him too…
So, if you have got a gun and you go to the mall, is there a Gun-Check for $1 apiece? Is it next to the Coat Check?
$1 a piece, yeah, except bazookas and rocket launchers –which cost $5 each 🙂
One of the arguments made in favour of concealed-carry permits is that had one of the students at Virginia Tech been allowed to have a gun on campus, the death toll would have been lower.
This argument is no more convincing to me.
It’s a myopic and hypocrite argument –myopic because although the death toll in this one occasion might have been lower, the number of total homicides would be (has been) far higher if people bring their guns everywhere. Hypocrite because if our goal really is to decrease the death toll, there is an evident, much safer solution.
