    Don't know if this has been seen yet, if so please delete or merge.


    (where they seem to be rather anti O.C), they link this:

    I dropped a reply to "murph" at the end, it should show up soon.

    Keep your heads up folks!

    Tried to post over there but the Captcha is bugged out.

    This law either needs to be reviewed or amended. I should be able to eat in a restaurant without seeing these people that I have NO IDEA who they are with Guns on their hips. If these Guy's want to carry guns, let them go to gun Clubs, or something to eat. They should add Restaurants and public meeting places to the places such as church and school where they cannot carry Guns.

    Yet another person who is ill-informed about Pennsylvania Laws. Pennsylvania does not restrict firearms possession in churches. The entirety of Pennsylvania's Uniform Firearms Act is located at this address:

    As you can see, reading through the extensive laws that apply to those who wish to lawfully possess firearms in the Commonwealth, churches are not included. In fact, more states are removing restaurant carry bans (Georgia will be eliminating theirs as of 7/1/2008).

    You also might want to be aware of your own commonwealth's constitution, which states:

    Right to Bear Arms
    Section 21.
    The right of the citizens to bear arms in defense of themselves and the State shall not be questioned.

    The Pennsylvania Supreme Court repeatedly turned away challenges against the licensing of concealed weapons on persons and weapons in cars because of the wording above. "Bear" means to openly carry.

    Your statement to me is quite similar to being uncomfortable with persons wearing turbans inside of restaurants because you feel "uncomfortable" that they're going to do something bad (as happened a lot after the 9/11 attacks). They're both just as much unacceptable.

    If you don't like the idea of persons bearing arms per Section 21 of your state constitution, then I suggest that you pack your bags and move to the State of New Jersey, which has no RKBA provision in it's constitution, and which licenses both concealed and open carry to the point that it takes a $50,000 contribution to the re-election campaign of the current governor to get a license to carry. If you're a poor woman being stalked by a crazed ex-boyfriend, you can still forget about getting a license in NJ.
