A year has come and gone since the passage of S.308, which allows legally armed citizens to carry their defensive firearms into establishments that coincidentally serve alcohol for on-site consumption as long as they do not consume alcohol.
Contrary to predictions put forth a year ago by the anti-gun crowd, blood is not running in the streets, restaurant patrons have not engaged in Wild West shootouts, and innocent patrons have not been harmed by negligent discharges. Despite the aggressive campaign urging restaurant owners to post questionably enforceable “No Concealable Weapons” signs, most used their common sense and declined to do so.
To those business owners who did post such signs, I ask: Do you honestly believe a “No Concealable Weapons” sign is going to stop a criminal from bringing a gun into your establishment?
Never miss a local story.
