GA: On Concealed Carry Reciprocity
From The Augusta Chronicle
We were enjoying lunch at a North Augusta, South Carolina, restaurant recently when a potentially violent incident nearly broke out.
We overheard a man telling his lady friend, odd as it sounds, that he should probably beat up another man seated nearby. “Why?” she asked him. Because of the company name on the man’s shirt, he told her. It was the name of a well-known national corporation.
The man spoiling for a fight was either mentally ill or perhaps had an unforgettable customer service problem with the company.
At any rate, luckily the completely innocent object of the man’s scorn appeared not to have heard the threat, and eventually the belligerent customer and his lady friend left.
But for a few tense moments, we realized we could’ve been caught in the middle of a brawl.
Feeling a sense of obligation to step in and protect the unwary patron against his would-be attacker, we briefly wondered if being armed would’ve been a good idea.
