Maybe guns in bars might not be such a good idea

by David Atkins

Remember back in 2011 when Ohio passed a law allowing guns into bars?

Maybe it was a bad idea:

Seven people were shot, one person badly beaten, early Sunday morning at a bar in Erie County.

According to the Sandusky Police Department, the incident occurred around 4 a.m. at DJs Sports Bar, 1643 Cleveland Road.

Sandusky Police tell WTOL, seven people were shot. Their injuries are not expected to be life threatening.

An eighth victim was flown to an area hospital by Life Flight. An updated on the victims' conditions has not yet been released.

Police say they have not made any arrests related to the shooting. Officers are in process of talking to witnesses to find out what led up to the shooting.

Well, we don't yet have all the details on whether the shooter was a concealed carry permit holder as covered under the law. But either they were in which case the law endangered the lives of everyone at the bar, or they weren't--in which case putting another gun in the room would only have increased the likely damage to life and limb.
