I thought the GOP wanted empower business owners not create regulations them that forced them to serve Jesse James.

More States Allowing Guns in Bars and Restaurants
By MALCOLM GAY
NASHVILLE Happy-hour beers were going for $5 at Past Perfect, a cavernous bar just off this citys strip of honky-tonks and tourist shops when Adam Ringenberg walked in with a loaded 9-millimeter pistol in the front pocket of his gray slacks.

Mr. Ringenberg, a technology consultant, is one of the states nearly 300,000 handgun permit holders who have recently seen their rights greatly expanded by a new law one of the nations first that allows them to carry loaded firearms into bars and restaurants that serve alcohol.

If someones sticking a gun in my face, Im not relying on their charity to keep me alive, said Mr. Ringenberg, 30, who said he carries the gun for personal protection when he is not at work.

Gun rights advocates like Mr. Ringenberg may applaud the new law, but many customers, waiters and restaurateurs here are dismayed by the decision.
