Now we see why guns don't belong in bars

Irony personified. In the middle of the debate on guns in bars, it takes a police officer to demonstrate how intoxicated patrons may behave. (A Bluffton police officer pulled his gun out and shoved it into the cheek of a patron at a Georgia bar, according to a recent newspaper article.)

Imagine if the attacked patron also had a gun. Wyatt Earp would be proud.
