    As an example:  You're a small business owner, you own a restaurant, and someone who legally can carry a concealed or open weapon comes into establishment and gets into a verbal fight, gets agitated, then shoots the person they're fighting with because that person got a "little too close to them."

    Will you be sued?  You can bet your last dollar on that.

    It works just like fire insurance when arson happens - the insurance doesn't pay out and a suit against the building owner for "lack of protection against arson" would be dismissed.

      to walk in their building with a gallon of gasoline and a box of matches?   Nothing illegal about that... until they light the match, huh?
