  •  What are you trying to say here? (0+ / 0-)

    Besides "I LOVE GUNS SO SHUT UP?" which is obviously your main message. Possibly the only message you have ever conveyed here.

    The diarist got it right, the 1881 law is stricter than today's laws. You didn't even read the diary, did you? I can tell, because you are not responding to anything that was actually written.

    See, if you had read the diary, you would realize where the "nonsense about concealed weapons came from." The law in Tombstone originally banned only concealed weapons, but they changed that to cover ALL weapons, as you illustrate above.

    •  I just posted the actual ordinance. (0+ / 0-)

      Did you read the diary?  Explain to me how that ordinance is stricter than today's gun laws?

      •  Weapon depository? (0+ / 0-)

        Where is the current weapon depository that all citizens must place ANY lethal weapon in while in town? There isn't one? Then the old law is more strict, plain and simple.

        •  Where does it say "weapon depository?" (0+ / 0-)

          And where does it say that all citizens must deposit any lethal device in such a store while in town?

          •  Section 2 (1+ / 0-)
            Recommended by:

            You are exempt from the requirement for a written permit while on your way to deposit said weapon.

            Section 2: This prohibition does not extend to persons immediately leaving or entering the city, who, with good faith, and within reasonable time are proceeding to deposit, or take from the place of deposit such deadly weapon.
            Seroiusly? You can't even read ONE paragraph, that you yourself use in a quote? Either that or you can't understand plain English. Either way, I'm done with this.

            Good day, sir.

            Can you read what you post, or do you just hope none of us can, either?
