Well there's an election coming up, and a gun show, so one way or other my guess is that won't last long.

I know we're not supposed to talk politics here, so I'm gonna leave for a bit now and go pound a politician on some other board.

Without getting into politics I have to question this pr!ck law enforcement attitude. Following their logic, how do they know you're not planning on calling a cab, wife or have a designated driver.

The cops here in OKC pulled that a few years back. Funny thing, was they found one bar to pick on. Busted it like 3-4 times in as many months. They just walked in in full uniform and started arresting people. Ended up causing the bar to shut down. Sucked too, it was an OKC icon. The T-Bar.

I'm not saying that everyone in law enforcement is a pr!ck. I know some very cool people in that field, but these people, they're pr!cks.

If they did that out here, they'd have to haul off the bartenders too!

to quote from the link -
"There are a lot of dangerous and stupid things people do when they're intoxicated, other than get behind the wheel of a car," Beck said. "People walk out into traffic and get run over, people jump off of balconies trying to reach a swimming pool and miss."

How can the agents prove someone was going to leave a bar and then find a balcony and miss the pool? Does a drinker have to be wearing goggles, a swimhat and speedos to be a suspect?

I believe they aren't assuming people are going to go out and do stupid stuff, they are only enforcing the stupid law of public intoxication, which is a law you can find practically anywhere and is only enforced when the cops/DA/state feel like it.
You're right about this being an election year and this should only be temporary. It will probably end up backfiring since now everyone who opposes it will go out and get hammered in public.

We should probably leave the White House out of this conversation.....

what does an election have to do with this? Is Carrie Nation running for office or something?

Do you think a majority of the public would vote for someone who supported this or someone who opposed this? Alot of old people vote and alot of old men drink Bud.

A better explanation would have been, "it's the law and it's our job to enforce it."
