    off topic... Shooting in Auburn

    Here is the link to the shooting that happened 4 blocks away from where I live. One of my friends happened to be driving by as shots rang out. This is another reason why we need to stay safe and be aware of our surroundings.

    I will round it off, and bring it to OC related...before someone jumps your butt for it:

    OC/CC and alcohol DOES NOT mix. IMO, any person that OC/CC, and consumed alcohol (more than a modest beverage) is playing with fire, and ought to have the hammer (pun intended) sent down on them when they mix the two, and find their way in a shootout linked to being a belligerent drinker.

    I know there are going to be people piping up and declaring, "I drink...and am responsible!" Yes, I suppose you have been so far. It interesting how it doesn't seem to be the case for people who end up mixing alcohol and carrying, that end-up getting into a gunfight in a parking lot late at night with fifty people standing around.
    I don't mind watching the OC-Community (tea party 2.0's, who have hijacked the OC-Community) cannibalize itself. I do mind watching OC dragged through the gutter. OC is an exercise of A Right. I choose to not OC; I choose to not own firearms. I choose to leave the OC-Community to it's own self-inflicted injuries, and eventual implosion. Carry on...

    Booze, firearms, and driving...I'm sure they do. Here in Washington State, there will likely be a shop like that that sells marijuana to go as well.

    Couldn't have happened since guns aren't allowed in bars in WA.

    That's a law that ought to be changed, IMO. I don't go to bars, but have been invited, and opted not to since I can't carry in them.

    OC'd yesterday at a BBQ, and had a couple beers. My firearm never came out of its holster.

    A guy at work was talking about this today. He said the problem would be fixed if they banned guns.
    I said, "Oh, you mean like prohibition?"
    He says, "exactly."

    I've been to that bar a few times. It's been awhile though. I haven't been back there in about a year and I wasn't planning to ever go back there again. The crowd there can get a bit unruly and I've felt nervous when leaving when the bar closes. People do mill-about the parking lot for quite a while usually, before making their way out of there. Auburn PD has been in the parking lot with at least two cruisers each time I've been there though.

    A 1911 that works properly is as rare as a Glock that doesn't.

    Willing to bet the guns started in the bar, before they moved outside.

    Agreed. Since the reports of this shooting all seem to say "a fight started and then guns were pulled out" it's more likely than not they were concealed, not left in cars.

    Let's see, we outlaw guns in bars and don't allow felons to posses firearms. Looks like in order to prevent incidents like this we just need more laws, right?

    GoGo- Were you making some kind of statement with that picture? That all the participants were Black? Who knows, maybe some had families like this:

    "If I shoot all the ammo I am carrying I either won't need anymore or more won't help"

    "If you refuse to stand up for others now, who will stand up for you when your time comes?"

    No, I simply posted the picture the media put into their story for people to draw their own conclusions.

    More today...

    Dancing huh, it looks like we should ban particular types of footwear to prevent dancing.
