Don't like it? Keep your private property private. This would still protect people in their homes and other places where the public isn't given access while protecting those who may use other private property that is open to the public.

While I tend to agree, past practice seems to differ. If the public is allowed in, private rights should be equal or superior compared to one's private home. The problem is making something like that stick and having the funding to fight it in court with the right lawyers to fight it with you.

Now granted it's probably not the perfect solution to every instance but it is a hell of a lot better than the way things are now.

If a business is forced to allow "protected classes" they should also be forced to allow constitutional rights.

Pipe dreams I know.

We've all heard about the Aurora Movie Theater. Century Theaters established that location as a gun free zone. There was a lawsuit filed by the survivors and the family members of the decreased against Century Theaters. The courts came back and ruled that Century Theaters was liable due to their gun free zone roles and not having adequate protection for its patrons.

Another court case to pay attention to is that SCOTUS has ruled that it is legal to prohibit open carry or concealed carry, but not both.

I wish I could recall the names of the court cases. I just woke up, so I'm still a bit foggy.

If I ever go back for my master's (not likely to happen), I'll be carrying.

Tell her to keep her yap shut and her gun well concealed. As soon as they execute all the scum fuck bags that inhabit the area, then she might consider following that dumbass policy.
