Karma (Sanskrit: कर्म; IPA: [ˈkarmə] ( listen); Pali: kamma) means action, work or deed; it also refers to the principle of causality where intent and actions of an individual influence the future of that individual. Good intent and good deed contribute to good karma and future happiness, while bad intent and bad deed contribute to bad karma and future suffering.
Gun control activist screws up, and gets caught carrying a gun in a gun-free zone, where carrying is now a felony thanks to a pointless gun-control law that this activist helped push. That, my friends, is the finest example of karma I have seen all week.
Apparently, an anti-gun group is already going around South Carolina trying to scare restaurant owners into putting up signs prohibiting legal concealed carry. Amazing! Why would they be so worried about law abiding citizens who have gone through the proper training, been fingerprinted and background checked, carrying the firearms they spent their own money on while sipping an iced tea at their favorite restaurant? There is simply no data whatsoever to show that this is going to be a problem. This change is not new to America, just new to South Carolina. And long overdue.
There are very few signs that can ward off evil, and the No Concealable Weapons Allowed sign is not one of them. In fact, displaying a NCWA sign does the opposite: it encourages criminals to target that particular location instead of others where they might encounter effective resistance.
There is no legal reason for a property owner to post, so these poor little dears are taking the tack that they won’t “feel safe” when their better-prepared friends and neighbors are enjoying their food while legally carrying. If these poor little dears, who are obviously ill prepared to deal with the realities of life, will just let the better prepared part of society take care of business, we will ALL be safer.
You can find the full text of Senate Bill 308 here. I highly recommend you read the whole thing, and don’t rely on a journalist’s interpretation of it.
Earlier today, Governor Haley signed Senate Bill 308! If you have a CWP, you will now be able to enjoy some tea or other non-alcoholic beverage at your favorite South Carolina restaurants without risking a fine, 3 years in prison, firearm confiscation, and a life-long Federal firearms disability.
Most Americans have already been able to do this for years. Predictably, there will be some handwringing from the enemies of freedom and personal responsibility, but I think South Carolina can handle it as well.
I’d like to thank everyone who has made this possible.
I thought this story would be interesting to everyone here.
To summarize the event: a 76-year old jewelry dealer comes out of his house into his carport, and finds a hooded man waiting on him armed with a taser. An altercation ensues, during which he manages to draw his .38 revolver, and shoot his assailant from the ground. Once shot, his assailant flees, only to expire somewhere nearby while the jewelry dealer goes back inside and calls 911. You can listen to the audio at the link – and probably should.
We discuss how to deal with calling 911, and the rest of the aftermath during my CWP class.
