More Lunacy From The Anti-Gun People

By Wyatt Earp | September 30, 2009

Desert Eagle .50Read this article, and see if you can spot the completely irrational, anti-gun bartender. I’ll give you a hint: he makes an appearance in the first paragraph.

I’ll give you another hint: his name is “Randy S.” No, that’s too obvious. Let’s go with “R. Shields.”

Read on.

PHOENIX — Bartender Randy Shields was serving British brews and Arizona ambers as usual at Shady’s bar in east Phoenix when he saw a customer walk in with a hunting knife strapped to his hip.

A disturbing image flashed through his mind — “that knife sliding between my ribs.”

Because that’s what always happens when someone is carrying a hunting knife. Lord knows that you cannot skim a news site without reading the headline, “Hunter Disembowels Idiot Bar Owner.”

The customer willingly turned over the knife while he was in the bar, but Shields still worries about a new Arizona law that goes into effect Wednesday that will allow guns into Arizona bars and restaurants that serve alcohol.

Under the law, backed by the National Rifle Association, the 138,350 people with concealed-weapons permits in Arizona will be allowed to bring their guns into bars and restaurants that haven’t posted signs banning them.

One has to wonder if Shields owns a gun or other weapon to protect his establishment from thugs and predators? Anyone want to take a guess?

Those carrying the weapons aren’t allowed to drink alcohol.

So what’s the problem? Most gun owners are more than responsible with their weapons, and the ones in Arizona will not be allowed to drink. Of course, that will eventually be a lawsuit in the making.

The new law has Shields and other bar owners and workers wondering: What’s going to happen when guns are allowed in an atmosphere filled with booze and people with impaired judgment?

Nothing! The gun owners will not be drinking, and if some lush gets drunk and violent, that same gun owner may save your sorry ass, Mr. Shields!

“Somebody can pull the trigger, then a bullet comes out, and people get hurt and killed,” said Brad Henrich, owner of Shady’s, a popular neighborhood bar that sees occasional minor scuffles. “The idea of anyone coming in with guns in a place that serves alcohol just seems ludicrous.” ()

I know, right? Especially in a state like Arizona that was practically built on firearms! Despite what Shields and Henrich would have you believe, the Wild West died about 100 years ago. Wyatt Earp (the real one) is dead, and the cowboys don’t play with guns – they play football now. Morons.

    The Bartender that is, he thought of it sliding between his ribs, I’d of thought the guy might have been hunting.

    Apparently these clowns think that violent, unstable people were actually prevented from bringing guns into bars by the law. Newsflash: A guy who will murder someone (a capital offense) is probably not deterred by a law that makes it a misdemeanor (or even a low-level felony) to carry a gun into a bar. What’s another year or two on top of a life (or death) sentence? A piece of paper won’t stop a bullet.

    what an idiot… like criminals with guns don’t already go into his establishment, or won’t still afterwards, while also consuming alcohol. I know he’s just a state away from Kalifawneeaa, but seriously… it’s Arizona… not NJ… get some balls, or go move to some true-blue state.

    If memory serves, when the Earp brothers were running Tombstone–ironically in AZ–they confiscated firearms, and held them until potential riffraff left town.
    So, the idiocy is not without precedent.

    ahh but that was just the riffraff, so it’s actually a polar opposite in this case hehe. stop the good people from carrying and let the riffraff just disobey the law anyway.

    Most criminals, 98% plus, are as afraid of other people with guns as the bar owner and would prefer to choose more easily taken targets, like unarmed people, areas with gun free signs and local liberal hangouts. However there are some really dedicated crazies willing to lay down their life for their crimes, but they, thank God are the rare exception.
    The LA bank robbery shootout with the two crazies willing to take on the bank guards, the police, the swat, hell the whole damn army even, are one of the rare exceptions. They came prepared to do battle and did. They were prepared to die if need be doing their job. But by and large criminals are freaking cowards.

    “that haven’t posted signs banning them.”

    Why not hang out a sign that says “easy pickin’s within”?

    Wonder if this jerk will put up one of those “banned” signs or if he fears he might lose too much custom?

    “serving British brews and Arizona ambers” What? No colored drinks with little umbrellas?

    They should be safe unless Plaxico Burress comes in and shoots himself again. All the gun laws in NYC prevented that from happening didn’t it.

    Criminals will still be criminals.

    We need to get rid of all these Foo Foo laws and focus on the important stuff, like keeping the violent offenders off of our streets.

    And I have been in a bar that had a sign up on the door that said “NO BELT KNIVES”. That was my clue that I would not be staying until closing time.

    My favorite story (and true) and I’ll try to keep it short:)
    But it involves bars, knives, guns and cops.

    One of my best friends who was a cop in Jefferson county Ohio at the time overheard a call for backup from another mutual friend of ours in the Andover police dept, a few miles away, about a guy with a knife in Pop Waters Resturant at the Andover lake causeway. Even though in a different county, this is one of our best friends and Rich responded. You could carry your own personal primary weapon then and Rich carried a .44 Special Bulldog, anyways arriving at the scene he found our friend Bill confronting a drunk knife weilding idiot and the bar customers were huddling in the back with pool cues and chairs at the ready. Bill had been trying to talk the guy into putting down the knife with his gun drawn but was having no success. Rich walks in assesses the situation and takes a .44 special round out of his duty belt and throws it as hard as he can into the mans chest from about 10 feet. The drunk yells.. ouch!.. and looks at Rich who then cocks the hammer and points at him and says..”Put the knife down or the next one is comin’ a lot faster!” The drunk immediatley complied:)

    What a bunch of idiots. The bartender can also carry a gun right? As long as he or she is not drinking on the job.

    These anti-gun nitwits get stupider every day.

    Nice Desert Eagle by the way. Is it yours?

    We’ve been allowing people to wear their guns into Indiana bars, probably forever. They can even quaff a beverage.

    There is no problem in Indiana.

    Maybe Arizonians are lesser people. But it is probably just Randy Shields who is lesser people.

    I’m stealing your story. :-)
