I applaud the judge for his action, it’s insanity to allow bar patrons to pack heat. After a few beers bar regulars will argue over anything, I’ve heard winos argue over who is the the most intimidating major league baseball mascot. Sometimes these discussions end with a broken nose or a black eye, but if a gun is in the mix it might end in tragedy.
 
We aren’t living in the days of The Wild Wild West, and no municipality should consider allowing folks to bring handguns into restaurants and bars. If the rednecks in my neck of the woods are ever allowed to bring their weapons to the local watering  holes, I will never again patronize a bar.
 
I’m a responsible gun owner, but I wouldn’t even trust myself with a weapon after I’ve downed a few shots of whiskey.
