(Water)Gun Fight at Johnson City Bar

The only casualties expected at Numan's Cafe and Sports Bar today are wet T-shirts and--worst case scenario--some smeared mascara.

In protest of the first official day of guns-in-bars, Johnson City bar owner Dan Numan is issuing his patrons water pistols, according to the News Sentinel. The first 100 patrons get the free water pistols, which will be followed by a massive and ironic battle. For all the gun nuts out there who might sneer at Numan and the other bar owners who plan to screen patrons for weapons, isn't this totally libertarian?

The guv'ment enacted a law allowing people to carry guns into places where, like it or not, fights break out. You might get punched, or something. Last thing these guys want is some wiener with hurt pride, pulling out a concealed weapon in anger. So they're just deciding for themselves. Isn't this what y'all want? The little guy deciding he's not going to let the government tell him how to run his bar? That's individual liberty. Are gun rights people cool with this kind of liberty exercising?
