Business executives lack it. Or at least those who sent a letter to members of the Senate demanding action on gun control.
The letter asks senators to pass legislation requiring background checks on gun sales and said failing to take action on the issue is unacceptable.
With no trace of irony, the letter insists
We are writing to you because we have a responsibility and obligation to stand up for the safety of our employees, customers and all Americans in the communities we serve across the country[.]
So you have to satisfy our responsibility for us.
Cue Bill the Cat.
There’s nothing stopping these executives from barring firearms from their places of business on their own responsibility. Federal—and State—laws only authorize individual carry; they do not mandate it, nor do they prevent private businesses from saying, “not in our house.”
However, it’s easier for some to demand Government do something in their name than it is for those some to act on their own responsibility.
