Soledad en masa


with one comment

I’m pretty sure LAist has banned me from commenting at their site. My most recent comments have never gone through; I don’t know if the problem also appears when I comment at other sites in the -istverse. No bother, it just goes to show that I’m important enough to be banned. The following paragraphs are a response to LAist posting a link to a story at the L.A. Times about people trying to ban openly-carrying firearms at Starbucks.

I welcome the initial shock that comes to people when they see someone lawfully open-carrying a firearm. It’s the beginning of a process that I hope will culminate with the public learning that they can, in fact, openly carry a firearm in public, provided it’s holstered, and reverting the law to once again deem loaded open-carry lawful (what’s the use of an unloaded firearm?). If it’s holstered, I have no problem with them.

In the case of Starbucks and business, they are private property and policies regarding firearms should be at the discretion of the owner and/or manager. If I don’t like their policy, I’ll take my business somewhere else, simple as that.

The moment I see someone reach for their holster, I’ll reach for mine. 🙂
