    I would understand the opposition to it a lot better if someone could point out the states where it doesn't work.

    It really doesn't matter if it works or not. It's the voter perception that we are competing against. Way too many times, when a shooting occurs, the shooter is presented as a person that legally permitted to purchase a firearm and the question is always, "how was someone like this permitted to have a gun?"

    That's the opposition that we face.

    Without a license it’s a felony punishable by up to 5 years in prison to posses a loaded firearm within 1,000 feet of the boundaries of K-12 school property (Gun-Free School Zones Act of 1990).

    Even if you have an SDA license, the GFSZA applies anywhere outside Oklahoma, but that’s a separate issue.

    The Second Amendment doesn’t give anyone the right to carry a firearm on private property against the wishes of whoever controls the property. A no guns sign on the door of a restaurant is a private matter between the owner and the (potential) customer, not an infringement of your rights. On the contrary, the restaurant owner has the right to decide who he wants on his property for virtually any reason.

    Regardless, I guess call me a purist. It’s been years since I spent a penny at any non-government-owned business that didn’t allow me to carry on their premises. I can’t remember the last time.

    I don't darken Dick's Sporting Goods anymore. I don't go to movies anymore. I don't go into stores that display the No Colt Woodsman pistols sign. I don't go into IHOP anymore. I don't go into a Waffle House without one.

    I try to do the same. I do take joy in telling those establishments why I avoid them as well; usually by email. My latest was to Dick's Sporting Goods congratulating them for their recent poor financial performance. Told them they may want to re-think their firearms policy. I finished with "On second thought, stay the course - here's to hoping for your bankruptcy".

    Yep. And, I will continue to do it every chance I get.

    Edit: The time for tolerance and politeness has long passed when it comes to more erosion of the 2nd Amendment.
