Ohio Considers Guns & Booze Bill

Heck, I though Texas was gun crazy, but Ohio takes the cake!  The Ohio State Legislature is working on a bill making it legal to carry a loaded firearm into a bar or an open air arena where alcohol is served.  That is just what I want, a bunch of drunks with loaded guns, or worse drunk sports fans with loaded guns!

In defense of the insane bill Republican Representative Danny Bubp, said the bill is necessary to make sure law abiding citizens have equal footing with criminals. Say what?

So by that logic we should all carry guns everywhere just in case one of those crafty gun toting criminals is present.  Oh wait!  How will we know who the criminals are?  Well are they the ones with the guns....or the ones with the guns?

This is just more of the political pandering to the gun lobby who believes that until every American, man woman and child carries a lethal weapon we are in danger!  Bullshit.  When are the lawmakers in this country going to wake up and smell the gunpowder?  This kind of thinking will result in old west style shoot outs at every corner.
Of course that is not part of their thinking, they just want the money and the votes.  If someone shoots up a town, God will sort out the bad guys I guess?
