Or are you just glad to see me?
The Republican-backed bill approved by the House and Senate on Tuesday allows concealed-carry permit holders to take firearms into bars, restaurants and other places where alcohol is served, parades and funeral processions as long as owners or organizers don’t expressly forbid it. Permit holders can also carry their firearms at public recreation areas and playgrounds.
And this new law would allow hunting with silencers, which is a real head-scratcher. Aside from the fact it gives hunters the unfair advantage of multiple shots to bring down their quarry (not very sportsmanlike), it also prevents other hunters (or hikers, or campers, or farmers, or horseback riders, or ____) from being warned there's a firearm being used in the area. Then again, Republicans don't really understand or care about "safety", since God has already decided if you're going to live or die, and lawmakers have no business getting involved in such matters.
