How about suing the supporters of Gun Control??
Advertisements [?]
Edited on Mon Aug-31-09 10:32 PM by virginia mountainman
I wonder, just how successfully a lawsuit would be against businesses and individuals, who ban mear possession of firearms could be??

Say for example.

A CCW holder goes to a store, they are a posted as a "No Guns" zone. The permit holder, being law abiding leaves his sidearm locked in his car, and goes into the store unarmed.

While he (or she) is in the store, a violent felon, enters the store, and robs the place, wounding several folks INCLUDING the unarmed CCW holder in the process.

I would think, that because the store, PROHIBITED the permit holder, the ability to have his (or her) hidden sidearm, and a means of self defence in this situation, deserves much of the blame for the wounded CCW holder.

After all, when they disarmed the CCW holder, they, took on the responsibility of protecting the CCW holder. And they didn't give the protection.

How about suing the ADVOCATES of gun control on the same premises? After all, if they had not lied, and pushed such terribly stupid legislation and rules in the first place, the outcome could have been different?

Thoughts?
