Are Gun Owners D-Bags? One S.C. Store Owner Thinks So
Recently the owner of Backstreets Pub and Deli in Clemson, S.C., posted a sign on his business' door that said the following:
NO CONCEALED WEAPONS ALLOWED. If you are such a loser that you feel a need to carry a gun with you when you go out, I do not want your business. Douchebag.
That's fine, as most Second Amendment supporters (there are an estimated 90-100 million gun owners in the country) also believe in a proprietor's rights, but I'd just like to remind this buiness owner of the following stats:
South Carolina has nearly 150,000 concealed carry permit holders, and they commit a negligible amount of crime there. Nationwide, the average is less than .05 percent. In other words, it's not people who carry firearms legally whom store owners--or anyone else--should worry about. Statistically, gun owners aren't losers.
Secondly, concealed carry owners are proven to follow laws--that's why they registered legally for the permit in the first place--so until Backstreets Pub and Deli can guarantee that criminals will not carry guns while purchasing a sammi or robbing the joint, I don't want to shop there. But that's just me.
How do you feel about Backstreets Pub and its insult to permit holders?
