North Carolina Bans Guns at State Fair; Two People Get Robbed at Gunpoint

Does this really surprise anyone?

Quote:It would be “unwise and imprudent” to allow concealed weapons at the state fair, Wake County Superior Court judge Donald Stephens said earlier this month as he ruled against allowing concealed firearms at the event.

Quote:“By announcing to violent predators that people attending the North Carolina state fair would be unable to protect themselves, the responsibility for this armed robbery of fair-goers lies squarely with Agriculture Commissioner Steve Troxler, who illegally banned concealed at the fair, and…Stephens, who willfully misinterpreted the law to impose his own worldview,” Paul Valone, president of Grass Roots North Carolina, told Guns.com.

I agree with Mr. Valone. They pretty much invited the criminals in for a free lunch.

Correct. Gun groups jumped all over this. One question I had that was whether or not the victims would have been carrying if not for the policy or were they just random sheeple who would have been victims anyway.
The law? The law is a human institution...

Would the perpetrators been so bold if they weren't reassured that they'd meet no resistance? Crime is a calculated risk, if you're sure you could get away with it you're more likely to try than you would be if you knew there was significant risk of failure, injury or death as a result. If the "authorities rule to reduce the risk of failure by attempting to eliminate the risk of immediate retaliation the criminals will be emboldened to act brazenly where they may not if they thought there was a 20% or greater chance that their intended victim would be able to end the encounter with force.

Point is we don't know. I would have liked to have seen gun groups say "this is why you carry at the fair" instead of "people robbed because of no guns policy". Its just as much a leap as any of the rhetoric the liberal tards spit out against us.

Liberals always see it as "people robbed because of guns" so there is no way you could reason with them by stating that this incident proves the need to carry.
