Talk about hitting a nerve: Hundreds of people have commented so far on our post about Shooters Grill, a Rifle eatery whose waitresses are armed. The passions run high on both sides of the issue. Here's an example from someone who probably won't be dining at Shooters anytime soon.

Is this place sponsored by FOX News? Gimmick or not (many don't understand gimmicks -- they still take them seriously), all this does is feed into the increasing paranoia that we are in increasing danger of random shooters anywhere we go anymore. The fact is, more and more people are working themselves up into a lather thinking the President is going to take away our guns, the Middle East is going to come over and attack us and this nation is trying to take down Jesus. Pull your heads out of your asses, folks. Quit listening to the hype. Things happen but stop being a lemming. This is not a violent third world state. But shit like this brings us another step toward it.
