The Restaurant – sub-part 2
We sat down at a round table reminiscent of those poker tables in those western movie bar scenes, right in the middle of the room. I half-expected to find a well-worn deck of cards. There was no panicked rush for the doors, or even a slow exodus, and people all around us were friendly.
On closer examination there were quite a few of people carrying sidearms in plain sight or discretely carrying them. I would say about 10% to 15% of the people were doing so. I personally felt quite safe as an armed society is a polite society, but I realize not everyone else thinks or reacts that way, especially in California.
The people here in Arizona are used to practicing and asserting their Second Amendment Rights. The 85% to 90% of the people that were NOT armed in this restaurant were not in the slightest bit worried or disturbed. I also did not see or hear all those gunfights that the liberal gun-banners say happen when the general public is allowed to carry protection that the U.S. Constitution guarantees.
I love America!
Move this scene to California and you would have had people yelling “GUN!” running out the door, hurting and trampling people in their stampede. The SWAT teams would follow and the law-abiding citizens would be arrested and taken to the Gray Bar Hotel for an extended stay.
