    "The problem with the liberal mind is that they believe everyone has the same twisted vision as they do. If that were the case, then why don't "No GUNS ALLOWED" signs stop people from getting shot in these same establishments? I sure hope they don't find out who fayncmike and pienne2 really are...you guys would be toast.

    I prefer to frequent establishments with "No GUNS ALLOWED" signs. At least in those establishments half of the armed Yahoos are out of the way and as I said, there will only be one out of control Yahoo firing wildly in one direction. The other way I risk being between two out of control Yahoos firing wildly at each other. As far as anyone finding out where I live, it would not bother me if they did. I do not live in constant fear or feel the need to barricade myself in some stronghold.

    "If you have passed gas wrong you will not get one (gun permit)"

    You can have a criminal record and get a gun permit.

    piene2,There you go again,sputtering about with your burqa stained with barbacue sauce,talking about things you have no idea about,we had better arm the public or soon we will be like Mexico attacked while being defenseless,now hows that working for you.

    If someone wants to get a weapon they will have no problem,criminals and trouble makers that use a weapon in a fight are usually of a cowardly nature anyway,with a weapon they must feel more of a man,I have seen men at a bar and other places that do have guns and a permit to own them get into a scuffle and neither of the two ever ran to the truck for the weapon,they just fought,thats the difference,you have a coward with a weapon and this is what happens.

    "For starters stop handing out pistol permits like party favors."

    Pass them out.. The sherif dose an extensive back ground check. If you have passed gas wrong you will not get one... Like some of the smarter comments on here people that have the premit aren't the one commiting the crimes....

    It'll be fun watching the shootouts on Main St. at high noon.

    Unlike you, at least back then someone was willing to face the criminals, stand up to them and defend the local community. Maybe if you were a little nicer and just asked with a please they would all turn their illegal guns in and join the local church choir.

    For all you against the concealed carry or citizens legally carrying handguns, of the last 20 or so shootings in cumberland county, every one was with an illegally obtained or carried handgun. THe shooters were already breaking numerous gun laws so another one would not have changed anything. Not one of the questionable shootings was by a citizen with a legally obtained weapon with a legal concealed carry permit. I would hope that you would be smart enough to understand the part about criminals and not obeying the law.

    Most shootings do not involve registered weapons.

  • 2BFair May 14, 2012

    Most criminals do not go about proper means to acquire weapons so preventing the law-abiding public from obtaining a weapon through legal avenues does NOTHING to stop the criminal element from obtaining one.

    There's a one week wait and background check to get a permit. Exactly what kind of parties are you going to?
