Well, That’s Nice to Hear

Ohio has joined the surrounding states in eliminating the provision that CCW holders can carry in Class D liquor establishments, like bars and restaurants.  This is the law in Pennsylvania (among other places) where I was recently at a 2nd Amendment function at a restaurant, with a bunch of folks who were open carrying).  It was a very tasty dinner, with a lot of admiring of holsters.

But no-one got shot, and very few of us were actually drinking.  It seems that a bunch of adult, well-mannered armed people exercised their second amendment rights and…nothing happened.  It would be nice if that could happen in my home state, I eat in a lot of bars and taverns.  Pub grub is good food.

Houlton, Maine

Filed under: Boomstick,NRA — williamthecoroner @ 10:04

Maine has had a hard century.  The population in 1900 was larger than it was in 2000, and there were industries back then that don’t exist anymore (ice production) or those have changed a great deal (shoemaking).  Houlton, Maine is in the north, in the largest county Aroostock County, and it’s the county seat.  There’s not a whole lot in Houlton, there are potatoes, of course, and a Wal-Mart, and there used to be a POW camp, but that closed in 1946.

But, at the NRA convention recently, I found out that Houlton has another industry now.  Smith and Wesson is making Walther pistols under license there, along with some very, very nice 1911’s.   Did I mention that I liked their 1911s?  Just sayin’.
