The stupidity of the Left knows no bounds…
AP reports a story entitled “Guns Allowed in Arizona Bars Starting Wednesday”… innocuous enough until you drill down into the article.
“The new law has Shields and other bar owners and workers wondering: What’s going to happen when guns are allowed in an atmosphere filled with booze and people with impaired judgment?
“Somebody can pull the trigger, then a bullet comes out, and people get hurt and killed,” said Brad Henrich, owner of Shady’s, a popular neighborhood bar that sees occasional minor scuffles. “The idea of anyone coming in with guns in a place that serves alcohol just seems ludicrous.”
To anyone with a short memory, this would invoke images of gunfights at the “OK Corral” Bar & Grill… but has it occurred to anyone that the exact opposite may occur?
In case most of the nitwit Lefties reading this have a short memory, or are too young to remember, period… I offer two words… Killeen, Texas.
What’s the significance of Killeen, TX? Luby’s restaurant, and the largest shooting massacre in American History until the events at University of Virginia. The shooting occurred on October 16, 1991 when George Jo Hennard drove his pickup truck through the front window of Luby’s Cafeteria in broad daylight during lunch with the place packed with 80 patrons and shot and killed 23 people. None were armed, with the exception Suzanna Gratia Hupp… her firearm was in her car because Texas law at the time forbade the carrying of firearms in restaurants or bars… instead of possessing the ability to stop the shooter, she watched as both her parents were gunned down before her eyes.
Wikipedia has a post on the events at Luby’s…
During the shooting, Hennard approached Suzanna Gratia Hupp and her parents. Hupp had actually brought a handgun to the Luby’s Cafeteria that day but had left it in her vehicle because laws in force at the time forbade citizens from carrying firearms. According to her later testimony in favor of Missouri’s HB-1720 bill and in general, after she realized that her firearm was not in her purse but “a hundred feet away in [her] car,” her father charged at Hennard in an attempt to subdue him but was gunned down; a short time later, Hupp’s mother was also shot and killed. Hupp later expressed regret for abiding by the law in question by leaving her firearm in her car rather than keeping it on her person.
So before you idiots go all Chicken Little and scream doom and gloom “the sky is falling” with the usual milk toast, pantie waist crybaby antics… think about who you kill with gun control.
