  •  Oh, I see. (0+ / 0-)

    You read the word "deposit" and assumed this meant there's something like a "weapon depository" set up in town.  The law makes no reference to such a place, though I imagine they expected you to hand your pistol or rifle over to the manager of whatever establishment you're patronizing while you go on about your business.  That's considerably less strict and more neighborly than in most parts of the country today.

    Also note you can receive a permit to carry.

    •  Seriously you think that (0+ / 0-)

      there can be a law requiring you to deposit your weapon without there being a location to do so?  Are you actually that daft or just pretending for the sake of an agenda?

      •  I'm pretty sure you can read. (0+ / 0-)

        So you already know the answer.  Try again.

      •  Excuse him, he's new here (0+ / 0-)

        Only 2 months and almost 600 posts, but only on gun diaries.

        He's a gun lover to be sure. Or gun's rights lover, to be more precise.

        Maybe he misread KOS' mission as electing more and better armed democrats.

        •  Pete screwed up by not editing the ordinance (0+ / 0-)

          he posted. Or possibly not understanding what it said. And now he resorts to defending his indefensible position. You have been outed, sir. Now check in your guns at the beginning of this post.
