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

Yes unfortunately we have become such a litigious society I would be worried about my family being ruined by a lawsuit. If we had more people who cared about their families over anything else we would live in safer better society. You sure do nit pick, I bet you play devils advocate every chance you get. Your friends probably love it.

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

So in the scenario where you're the good guy with the gun, you'll have legal issues going through your head, and they'll prevent you from pulling your weapon?

We deserve a better hero than you.

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

I was referring to a hypothetical person at the Dallas shooting. Most people pocket carry .380 today. Good or bad round it is very popular. I don't what the cop was carrying, wasn't really my point. The sad part is if the cop accidentally shot someone in the club during the assault he would have been sued.

"financial contribution"

How much? Approximately what percentage of the sales of Gullah Cream Ale and/or other brews? Specifically?

Also, which organizations, specifically, are you helping with time and/or money?

With the release of the can next month... all of our resources, including but not limited to, our venue, time, ability to reach a wide audience and financial contribution are all on the table, but most important to the corridor, is expanding its reach to achieve it's mission of education and engagement and how we can help them with that mission. As stated above, we would love to have help from passionate people and would be glad to get you involved, as well.

Fair play.

Thank you, sir.

Speaking specifically, in what ways is your company employing your platform and product in order to benefit the Gullah community? I'm curious; that's all.

Re: “Cool off with beer news Revelry and Holy City, plus Ghost Monkey and Two Blokes openings

Pronghorn, our tasting room manager let us know you called. Thank you for your concern for the preservation of the Gullah Geechee culture. We share that concern. Our cream ale is a pre-prohibition style ale made with local heirloom grains. Looking into the history of those grains, we discovered the deep connection they had within Gullah Geechee culture. We felt inclined to pay homage with the name, Gullah Cream Ale. Additionally, prior to your comments, we met with the Gullah Geechee Cultural Heritage Corridor to discuss ways in which we can employ our platform and product to assist the Corridor's mission. If you would like to discuss ways in which you can join us to preserve this history, please contact us. We're sorry that our press release about our gold medal win was misconstrued. At best, the timing of information could've been better.

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

"didn't stay around trying to shoot a unknown shooter with a .380 pocket pistol. Shame on the off-duty cop in Orlando for losing a gun fight."

According to http://factcheck.org, he was in his service uniform while working the door. There's no way he was carrying a purse-gun .380. He was in uniform, so he had his service sidearm. This means we're talking AT THE VERY LEAST a 9mm. However, like many officers, he could have been holding a .40, .357, or .45. Fact. 9mm at the least -- and that has plenty (way more than enough) ballistic stopping power.

.380 for a uniformed cop? Please. That's a wife gun -- and you know it.

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

I really hope that you're as tough as you're trying to sound; that way, I can count on you to be the "good guy" with the concealed permit who's going to stop the next potential shooter in Charleston, thereby saving myself and my family's lives along with hundreds of others.

You know, like you read about all the time: Good Guys Preventing Mass Shootings is an almost-weekly/monthly news occurrence, unlike, say, mass shootings.

I just cold-called and spoke to a very kind worker at Revelry. I told him to alert a manager there about the comments section of this article; so hopefully we'll get a response.

At this point, Charleston City Paper will bury this article; never allowing it to appear in the "Recent Comments" section. It's either that, or "Comments Closed" (no debates allowed).

Can't take a story backfiring on them, I guess -- even if the response they weren't expecting is completely justified.

Revelry should be ashamed about this matter, and aim to right a wrong.

I won't forget about it, though. You know me.

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

Geez guys, Im sorry a texas citizen or Orlando off-duty carrying a gun didn't shoot the killer. How dare the texan citizen run for his/her life and didn't stay around trying to shoot a unknown shooter with a .380 pocket pistol. Shame on the off-duty cop in Orlando for losing a gun fight.

The good guys don't always win but there will always be bad people.

IN MY OPINION, There is just no way around it at this point any gun ban is to facilitate a future gun confiscation. It took me a while to come around to that fact. Now I see it clear as day. Some people are for a complete confiscation and I get that but don't act like its not. If you stand for something speak up, don't lie about what you really want. I also understand many people are misinformed or lie to themselves, especially on this subject.

I personally have been shot at with 15 9mm rounds and the guy who did it illegally had the pistol and only got 2 years probation. Didn't have a conceal weapon then but wouldn't leave the house without one now. People are freaking crazy, protect yourself and your family. Don't leave it up to the bad guy making bad shoots for you to live.

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

No, you are not getting it right.

Laws that regulate the concealed carry of firearms will only be follow by people that care about laws. People are carrying firearms every day in prohibited areas, drinking, committing acts of violence, etc. Neither existing laws nor new laws will change that.

The point is to not disarm law abiding people, nor to overly restrict their right to bear arms. We allow drinking and driving, for instance (up to a certain BAC). Some states apply the same BAC to concealed carry. Works for me - after all vehicles can be much more effective weapons as seen before, most recently in France.
