Re: “Charleston County Council will consider resolution opposing assault weapons

Hey did anybody notice the cop killings last week in Texas, the state with the lightest open carry laws in the country? How come no Armed Big Big Bad Texans came to the rescue? I thought that was the purpose of loosening carry laws... or in Louisiana? Or did you just mean you would open fire to protect private citizens, screw the cops?

Re: “Charleston can't handle an influx of new residents

Where's the insight here people? Say? Tell us something we don't know. Do not give this article esteem. Expect more from a columnist called Mat Catastrophe.

Use that 'PRESS' badge. This is a News+Opinion piece...what is your opinion? That this article was even posted and then heralded by the community shows that we have a lack accountability to our city as its citizens.

Mat Cat, man, do better. I think you can. Or CP, let this guy write what he really wants. It's a waste of your platform in the community to publish something like this. Take a chance, or you'll be just another entertaining/cutesy blurbist...talk about saturation.

Laura,
There are laws that prohibit carrying a concealed weapon while drinking in public. Might want to learn your laws first before you ask for more.

Re: “Charleston County Council will consider resolution opposing assault weapons

I think we need to point out the supporters of this nonsense, name by name and make sure we draw attention to them at every opportunity. Every time they do something, be sure to refer to them has "GUN BAN SUPPORTER".This is political arrogance and we need to vote these people out as soon as possible.

Re: “Charleston can't handle an influx of new residents

Sonia Faye says "Transplants change the character of the places they migrate too and turn them into the same cesspools that they escaped from in the first place. You come here for low taxes. Infrastructure increases taxes. Which do you want? Low taxes or infrastructure? Can't have it both ways."

This transplant didn't come here for low taxes - I came from Massachusetts - NOT a cesspool BTW - to escape winter snow and cold - period. I'd be happy to pay more in taxes to make infrastructure improvements and while I'm at it I'll throw in some extra for better schools.

Re: “Charleston County Council will consider resolution opposing assault weapons

It would help if some of you actually read the article before posting stupid comments. They aren't banning anything, simply asking the state to consider it. NiteGoat, don't know what Constitution you're thinking about but the one I consult pretty regularly guarantees "the right of the people...to petition the Government for a redress of grievances". Nowhere does it say local government is not "the people". I can assure you I am greatly agggrieved by people walking around in public, including bars where they might be expected to drink alcohol, with any kind of weapon they want any time and appreciate my elected representative petitioning the state government on my behalf.

Re: “How John Lewis gets his Texas Hot Guts sausages to snap

just to hope I was not talking out my ass I visited Lewis BBQ today. as i would not stand in line for anyone's cooking i drove on a rainy Sunday to do it. even then I waited 15 minutes behind 8 people to order. the line isn't about the quality of the food it is about the lack of ability by the front of house.

as i sat in line i looked around and thought of the irony that this smokehouse is near Romney street and all i saw was a bunch of white people who looked like they came from the beach and golf course. not those who will help you make it through the winter months.

as a cook for over 20 years, 10 of them here in Charleston, let me say this. it's fucking meat. the brisket? not mouth watering. and i even asked for an end cut to get the "smoke". beyond that the "hot guts"? yeah, kielbasa with more heat than is comfortable.

this will be a nice space for a rave club when it sucks "Home Teams" exhaust and closes. i don't know about Home Team, but a homegrown franchise gets my vote over some dude with a bunch of press we have seen since they started welding their cookers so many months ago.

Austin? hope it's music is better than the food hype. BTW. Ask Chicks Fry House and it's Beard award winning founder about gentrification on the neck..
