What if businesses prohibited armed citizens?

"Weekend reaction to this column’s story about an Arizona-based firearms retailer who is refusing service to people who voted for Barack Obama has been striking and among the criticisms of gun dealer Cope Reynolds were those that wondered what would happen if businesses decided to not allow armed citizens inside?"

"Actually, there have been such prohibitions for years. In the wake of gun law reform in Minnesota, Nebraska, Wisconsin, Michigan and elsewhere, the gun ban lobby actively encouraged businesses to post their establishments off limits to legally-armed citizens." ...
-------

Submitter's Note: As a MN permit-holder for almost 10 years now I can say exactly what happens when businesses ban guns: gunnies take our business elsewhere.

"The right to keep and bear arms embodied in the United States Constitution’s Second Amendment is almost certainly the most contentious and hotly debated of all the rights enumerated in the Bill of Rights. I have been active in the gun rights arena for almost a decade now, and in this book I will attempt to guide readers down the logical paths of the gun control/gun rights arguments which I followed in developing my personal belief that the freedom to own and carry the weapon of your choice is a natural, fundamental, and inalienable human, individual, civil and Constitutional right — subject neither to the democratic process nor to arguments grounded in social utility ..." ...

"A Second Amendment rights advocate isn't surprised that Barack Obama, following his re-election last week, is reinvigorated about the possibility of squashing Americans' right to bear arms."

"Larry Pratt, executive director of Gun Owners of America, admits he is still shocked that President Obama has won a second four-year term in the White House. After the election, Reuters reported that officials in Washington backed the U.N. General Assembly's disarmament committee's call to renew debate over a draft international treaty to regulate the $70 billion conventional arms trade." ...

... "This would seem to put these 'progressive' advocates of these marijuana reforms in something of a bind. Are they now 'Tenthers,' as statists have disdainfully labeled those of us who claim that the Tenth Amendment means what it says, and denies the federal government any power to regulate guns (and, for that matter, marijuana) that have not entered interstate commerce, since nowhere in the Constitution is the power to regulate those things delegated to the federal government?"

"If so, how can they argue that the power to regulate guns is, any more than the power to regulate cannabis, the domain of the federal government? The answer, of course, is that they cannot, without abandoning any pretense of rationality ..." ...

When you’re kitting out your precision rifle, a good foundation is the cornerstone of the whole thing, so choosing the right rail is essential. LaRue Tactical made some interesting claims about their rail, and since I had a Remington 700 in need of one, I asked if they’d send one to try out . . ." ...

"Back during the Vietnam War, USAF Security Police, Marines and Navy SEALs often used shotguns with "duck bill" spreader choke devices. The device would cause the shot to spread out in a wide horizontal pattern. It was designed to be used with No. 4 shot. An example is shown below."

"This duck bill spreader device had a couple of faults. First, the openings would catch in jungle vegetation. Second, they had a tendency to crack after extensive use."

"Paradigm SRP has just released their own versions of the spreader choke that they call the Gator Shotgun Spreader. Unlike the Vietnam-era chokes, it can be used with both No. 4 and 00 buckshot. ..." ...

"About a month ago, we had the privilege of announcing a new holster to the market, the X-FER by Armordillo Concealment. My initial impressions after running it for a few days were positive, but I promised to report back after I had the chance to test it more thoroughly, and it’s now time. If you follow Monderno, there will be a little bit of overlap between my announcement post and this more in-depth review, but not much."

"One thing to note is that most of my testing was done with a Glock 19 and a Smith & Wesson M&P full-size, carrying the X-FER in the appendix position, which I know many of you hate. That’s ok, as I think everything that I found holds true for other IWB positions as well." ...

I talked to one of their customer service representatives. His reply: get a new magazine. I explained that there’s nothing wrong with the standard mag save the baseplate . . ." ...

"'May you live in interesting times.' – Chinese curse. 'Only accurate rifles are interesting.' – Col. Townsend Whelan. Well, out of the box, the Savage Model 93 FV certainly looks interesting in that good, Whelenian way. It has the bull barrel, Savage’s AccuTrigger and a target crown. Top the rifle off with a BSA 'Sweet 22' scope, add a detachable box magazine for quick reloads and this rifle appears to be a winning combination. But looks can be deceiving, which is why we do these reviews . . ." ...

"The number of people who’ve comparison tested the ballistics of multiple self-defense rounds is smaller than the number of banana splits Kim Edri‘s eaten in the last month. The number of armed self-defenders who make their carry cartridge decision based on published ballistic tests is only marginally greater. Generally speaking, it’s down to price and branding. I don’t know the price of Barnes Bullets’ new TAC-XPD—I’m thinking expensive—but I do know that the company has a sterling rep for making bullets that count. And the box is way cool. But wait! There’s more! The new ammo’s got a unique selling point: 'almost no muzzle flash.' Now how much would you pay? Don’t answer! They also claim lower felt recoil than their competitors. ..." ...

"Illinois is the only state in the country that does not have a concealed carry law. We think it should stay that way."

"Ten mostly rural Illinois counties voted to support a concealed carry provision last Tuesday, pushing the issue to the forefront and adding pressure to the state government to join the rest of the country in allowing concealed handguns to be carried into public spaces. But the arguments behind concealed carry are couched in emotion, ideology and correlative statistics; allowing individuals to carry hidden guns is simply not a defensible solution to crime and violence." ...

"In general, what I’ve heard from those who own guns and support the right to own guns is guns are needed for self protection."

"Some students fear, 'the way things are going' and they feel the need to protect themselves, 'when things go down.'"

"But where are things going and why do we need a gun when we get there? Why is there a notion that, any day now, we are going to reach a state of disaster of apocalyptic proportions and all humanity will digress into chaos?" ...

There are too many countries and too many left-wing [NGOs] that want a treaty.' He was right and as Katie reported last week, it didn’t take very long to initiate another attempt. One question she raised in her post deserves more attention: 'Is the argument from the U.N. that it won't suppress Second Amendment rights an honest one?' And what about the Obama administration’s argument that they 'will not accept any treaty that infringes on the constitutional rights of our citizens to bear arms'?" ...

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
As an individual, I believe, very strongly, that handguns should be banned and that there should be stringent, effective control of other firearms. However, as a judge, I know full well that the question of whether handguns can be sold is a political one, not an issue of products liability law, and that this is a matter for the legislatures, not the courts. The unconventional theories advanced in this case (and others) are totally without merit, a misuse of products liability laws. — Judge Buchmeyer, Patterson v. Gesellschaft, 1206 F.Supp. 1206, 1216 (N.D. Tex. 1985)
