    Never in my life did I think Americans could get so ignorant...Imagine happy hour with your life at risk if you accidentally bump some dimwit.....The SEC Championship game with a shootout at the end. Someone gets pissed at the Masters. Makes our stand ya ground law look impotent. sad........

    Gun nutters on the loose...

    There's no reason that the average joe should carry particularly at a bar.

    Yeah, being surrounded by other people with guns never would make one less likely to be uncivil or provocative toward them, it makes them really, really aggressive. The fluttering about over Georgia having an open carry law pretty much crystallizes just how little about actual human behavior the left actually understands, so invested are they in the version they wish they could force everyone to (d)evolve into once they've created utopia through the power of the state.

    In the real world, do bullies pick on the weak and vulnerable, or the strong and and confident?

    Do street gangs steer clear of young bohemians out on the town, or vice versa?

    Hell, do crazy kids practice becoming future serial killers on the family cat, or on the alligator down in the pond?

    Lesson guys -- people with bad intentions prefer not to get shot.

    It'll be interesting to see what happens. My guess is nothing much.

    I know that conservatives are kind of obsessed with Chicago, and I'm not sure why. Maybe because Obama lived there. But you realize Atlanta has higher murder rate and violent crime rate than Chicago, right?

    WOW the sheer population size Chicago has over Atlanta gives some years to Atlanta.

    Anyhow when you look at the actual numbers, it is not even close:

    http://www.city-data.com/crime/crime-Atlanta-Georgia.html

    http://www.city-data.com/crime/crime-Chicago-Illinois.html

    Some of the other stats from Chicago make Atlanta look like utopia.

    I chose Chicago for two main reasons

    1. Known strong gun control laws
    2. Mostly because I had just read the above linked article.

    Has nothing to do with Obama.

    A significantly lower murder rate, though.

    Conservatives have been focusing a lot on Chicago's murder rate, even though it's not the nation's highest. Limbaugh, Drudge, a bunch of the Fox folks ...
