Cuppa Joe – Joe Simonsky – in Vancouver

Hi Highlands. Cuppa Joe here in Vancouver and it’s early here. Gavan tells me I’m getting hits. But I just read his screed on giggly math (HATVA says $15-50 million generated by ATV use in the Highlands).

And I’m inhaling that info with the hurdy gurdy skepticism it deserves.

So Gav? I’m calling BS or as we say on Granville Island – Bovine Excrement.

Anyway here it is your morning grin. Or batshit crazy post of the weekend.

From Cuppa Joe to you! Enjoy the sun and the long weekend. Revel in the fact that we do not live in Ohio.

Ohio governor signs law allowing guns in bars

COLUMBUS, Ohio | Fri Jul 1, 2011 10:20am EDT

(Reuters) – Ohio Republican Governor John Kasich on Thursday signed into law a bill that allows gun owners in the state to carry concealed weapons into bars and other places where alcohol is served.

The measure, which was forwarded to Kasich on June 22 by the Ohio General Assembly, was signed on Thursday afternoon. Kasich is scheduled to sign the Ohio budget later Thursday.

Businesses can ban concealed weapons on their premises for safety reasons if the want to and some, like the Cincinnati Bengals football team, have indicated they will continue to bar gun owners from bringing firearms into the stadium.

The law also prohibits gun owners from consuming alcohol or being under the influence of alcohol or drugs when they carry their weapons into bars.

The new laws allow residents to carry concealed handguns into licensed establishments in the state, including shopping malls and sporting venues.

The new law also allows a person with a concealed carry license to transport a loaded handgun in a motor vehicle without securing it in a holster, case, bag or box — and allows them to remove a handgun from a secure location.

Opponents of the laws had said that mixing guns and alcohol would endanger public safety. Supports argued that the laws bring Ohio into line with other states that have concealed carry rules.

Happy Fourth of July America… and let’s get those body bags out into the ambulances right f*&^%ing now. Pity the poor Cleveland paramedics.
