Who cares about some barflys shooting at each other?

The way Arizonans worship guns, shoot female politicians at Sara Palin's comamd and the way I'd hear so many of them get upset when not permitted to take their weapons into various barrooms or fast food joints, i can't imagine how a shooting could be news.

Yeah. Jimmie. Guns are NOT allowed in these places. That in itself IS a felony..

just a guess, but, maybe anybody around them? or do you think drinking makes you a better shot? it takes a special kind of stupid to not care about human life. (since you dont seem that bright, i am hinting that towards you)


did you get dropped on your head when you were a kid?

The people involved weren't allowed to carry, period, let alone in bars.

You have to have a concealed carry permit to carry into a bar, and you can't drink if you do.
