Ohio lawmakers vote to allow guns in bars, arenas.

"Ohio lawmakers passed a proposal Wednesday to allow people with concealed-carry permits to take their firearms into many facilities where alcohol is served and consumed, as long as they don't drink.
The Republican-led Ohio House voted 55-39 in favor of the change, and the GOP-led Senate concurred with a vote of 25-7." Cincinnati.com

Oh I love these GOP's, I'm glad they are focusing on budgets, economy and unemployment. I mean what is with guns and America? What exactly is the point of the second amendment in this day and age?
When the second amendment was adopted in December 15, 1791 it was because firearms was essential for group defense of our communities: "A well regulated Militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed."
So lets get this straight America, 1971 is long gone and the situations are different. England is not coming to invade America. And we don't need to take on the Government.
I think its time to take our head out of our ass and look at more rational ideas. Look at Canada, Australia and England. No one over there is crying about not being able to carry guns. And no one in these countries are loosing their freedom because they don't have a gun.
I'm not saying people should not be able to buy sporting rifles but no citizen should be allowed to buy assault-weapons ban, and there is no justification for civilians to possess machine pistols or semiautomatic rifles.
In my opinion this whole gun debate is getting a little out of control.
