When I asked my father about it he said that Vegas casinos actually do allow open carry.  Normally I'd consider him an authority since his entire job revolves around keeping the gaming board from breathing down everyone's necks but on politically charged topics I have to take everything he says with a grain of salt.

On the topic of arcade machines though, if you guys don't have one of those Deer Hunter POSes in the back you're probably losing money.

I pour whiskey at time-locked saloon in a pretty damn redneck, open carry state. I regularly have to, no fucking joke, tell people to check their iron at the bar.
Huh, I thought I was in a state with pretty liberal gun laws (sorry...), and there's no carry allowed in bars. On further research, apparently a lot of places let you hang onto your gun while you're liquoring up.

It's a new trend in at least some states; just passed in Arizona a few years ago.  Which is why most of the bars now have signs in the windows explicitly declaring No Firearms Allowed.

My favorite restaurant in the Phoenix area (The Horny Toad, for Thad), has had a "No Guns. No Ties" sign up since it opened. You can check both at the door.

What a gross violation of human rights. They can take my tie from my cold dead hands.

Okay, it's a trashy dailymail link, but the story seems to check out?

Homeless woman jailed five years for lying about her address in order to enroll her son in a better school district

Note that she was also convicted for dealing drugs, but that the article explicitly states that that is a separate sentence and that the "theft of school" (are you kidding me?!) charges were indeed treated as a felony offence on their own.

I freely admit in advance that the whole thing is indeed bullshit, but the 'theft' charge is predicated on the concept that local property taxes pay for schools; if you send your kid to a different property tax region, you're nominally tapping funds you have no share in.

When your two charges are "selling drugs" and "gaining access to a school" you can probably expect some hyped up sentences.
