    Why just the gov't entities? Why not ALL places?

    My guess it would be a lot harder to do. The government can tell itse;f what to do. It would be a tough sell to tell a business what to do.

    We've been through this discussion before. Personally, I don't think a business generally open to the public should be able to prevent customers from carrying, but I am in the minority about that.

    Yep...they can refuse to let you be able to defend yourself, but they can't refuse to cater your gay wedding.:cool:

    Odd, isn't it?

    Meanwhile, it's too bad they can't apply this law to a Federal buildings.;)

    If it's CCW they shouldn't know.

    Thanks, exactly what I was thinking, but was trying to be nice :D

    I can sorta almost see the distinction between open carry and conceal carry in a don't ask don't tell kinda sense. But then to use Ajole's example, you can see how that doesn't quite work either.

    I 100% believe that a business shouldn't be forced to compromise it's belief in regards to creating a product (wedding cake, t-shirt) promoting a belief that is contrary to their beliefs, but at the same time, they shouldn't be able to restrict access to someone in violation of their constitutional rights.

    TO clarify, I don't think Chick-fil-A should not be allowed to refuse service or access in the restaurant for the purpose of regular business, like buying a meal to anyone carrying a firearm or who is a homosexual, however I do believe they should have the right not to be able to cater a NRA event or a same sex marriage.

    I also know that others will disagree with me, and I can live with that

    Odd? That's putting it nicely.
