    Like we allow private establishments to decide what time to stop serving, whether or not patrons can smoke inside, what ages they serve alcohol to, etc?

    People shouldn't be allowed to drive to places serving alcohol either. Same logic.

    "And now lawmakers want to allow concealed guns in bars? Are the stabbings not exciting enought for them? - HankScorpio"

    I hate to break this to you, but there are already lots of guns being carried in places where alcohol is served (not just bars, restaurants too) -- criminals don't care about the laws.

    You should read about the Luby's (restaurant) massacre

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Luby's_massacre

    A woman followed the law and left her firearm in her vehicle at the restaurant. A madman came in and shot 50 (fifty!) people, including both her parents fatally. Based partly on her testimony, Texas passed one of the first concealed carry laws and now (22 years later) concealed carry is allowed in almost every state in the US.

    Guns should definitely not be allowed in places where alcohol is served. BuglessDuster

    Good - when we catch a criminal carrying a gun in a place where they're not allowed to have one, we'll imprison them for 20 years, right?

    Or maybe we'll do what we did with one of Eve Carson's killers : a convicted felon out on probation when he was caught carrying a stolen gun -- he was released the next day and ten days later he murdered Ms. Carson with ANOTHER gun.

    And you're worried about licensed concealed carry holders having dinner in Applebees ....

    Key word being "hurt" and not kill... note, if guns had been involved there is a good chance that one or both of the injured would be dead, or that others may have been hurt/killed...

    Will people always be able to find something to hurt and kill someone else with, yes of course... but you can't stab a wildly into a crowded from a distance and kill several people.

    The steely eyed gun owner would have been standing at the bar, totally sober, because he always follows the law about not carrying while drinking. He would have spotted the "perp" (as they love to call them) pulling a knife from his pocket while standing only inches away from the victim, pulled out his gun and got a clean shot through a crowded bar in the 0.1 seconds it took for the knife to reach the victim. This is totally how it would have played out if the "good guy with a gun" was there.

    More violent crime in Raleigh in two separate areas on same night.. How does this have anything to do with a gun debate now? Allow or disallow guns, knives, broken bottles, chairs, tables and etc and violent people WILL STILL find something to hurt another with...

    "Maybe if a "good guy with a gun" had been there, the stabbings wouldn't have occurred. Wise up!"

    Or in a more likely scenario, many would be shot and killed because some got too drunk and rowdy at a bar. You need to wake up!
