Editorial: Brewer should veto guns in bars

Oh yes, I don't think there's any question that legalizing concealed carry in bars is a bad idea. I work in bars a lot, and I sure don't like the thought of encouraging this, even though I realize that there are probably many people doing this illegally now, particularly women, who have a better reason for doing it than men. So let's applaud the unnamed Courier editor for taking a sensible stand on a gun issue, where so frequently in the past the Courier has been the NRA's panting lapdog. As it stands the bill's language is really stupid, as the editor points out.

Of course, let's not forget that if it passes and some really awful things happen, it could turn public opinion even more against all the gun-totin' going on in this state. But that factor should not cause us to question the editor's sincerity. Not a bit.

1pm: Hilariously, several commenters accuse the editor of radical liberalism! Yup, darksiders eat their own young.
