Rusty Calls for "Common Sense Limits on Freedom of Assembly, Nightclub Control"

233 people killed. 233! The culprit? A semi-automatic carrying crazy thug? Nope, a fire in a nightclub.

It kind of puts the whole gun control argument in perspective, doesn't it?

Think about the five essential freedoms in the First Amendment: Speech, press, religion, petition, and assembly.

When is the "conversation" going to start about limiting the number of people allowed in a nightclub?

To get this "conversation" going, let me propose limiting the number to, say, 10.

Any nightclub with more than 10 people in it are dangerous. What if there was a fire? If you had 11 people in the nightclub there would be 11 dead. But with 10, only 10 dead. Capiche?

And do you really need more than 10 people in a nightclub?

Look, I'm not trying to put nightclubs out of business. I'm not saying you can't go to a nightclub. I just want reasonable regulations on nightclubs.

I personally go nightclubbing all the time.

Nightclubs are part of our heritage, part of the American tradition. I mean, if you grew up and your dad gave you a disco ball when you were ten and that became part of your family's traditions, you can see why you'd be pretty protective of that.

No one is going to take away your disco ball. No one is going to take away your glowsticks, your ecstasy, condom machines in the women's bathroom, or your Eurotrash rave music.

But why can't you see that no one needs more than 10 people at a nightclub?

That's reasonable. With an additional mandatory background check for every one entering the nightclub, we should be able to save millions -- nay, billions -- of lives.

Also, we should do away with nightclubs that look like they could hold more than 10 people. You know, scary assault-nightclubs:

A nightclub fire killed at least 233 people in southern Brazil early on Sunday when a band's pyrotechnics show set the building ablaze and fleeing partygoers stampeded toward blocked and overcrowded exits in the ensuing panic, officials said.
Now if only the powerful nightclub lobby wasn't so good at mobilizing naive young urbanites, we'd be able to get nightclub control right away.

1 What about underground backyard raves? Those should be treated as treasonous!

Yeah, Nana, I'm looking at you!!

2 Does that 10 people include employees? If it does, there goes the night club industry. More jobs down the pole.

3 Well actually there was already nightclub control.

The Fire Marshall there rated the club capacity at 1000. There were 2000 inside. So its not as if new laws will make them obey the old laws?

But again a limit of ten would have meant there would only been 2o people in the club and save 1980 lives!

5 We just need to ban the scary gothic and heavy metal clubs where the patrons wear black. Also any nightclub with a sushi bar to which a dagger-like knife can be attached.

Think like a Democrat, Bubbe: limiting them to 10 patrons would actually increase employment in the hospitality industry because those 2000 patrons would require 200 clubs with a separate bartender, janitor and DJ for each one; the mega club probably only hired a staff of twenty or so.
And if they buy drinks with unemployment checks it'll really super stimulate the economy, right Mrs Pelosi?

6 High capacity 'clubs' are a problem like that. The limit is 1000 but they force 2000 in there and weaken the ejection springs. When the firing 'gate' is opened, the 'units' fail to 'cycle' causing heat to build up. What was the caliber again? 233/5.65 1/2? Or something? Hollow/headed dum-dums? I thought Berzile was a civilized country. Aren't they in the U.N.?

7 Since most nightclub deaths happen on nights and weekends, the smart thing to do is limit nightclubs to daytime and weekdays. It's only sensible, and if it saves ONE life, it's worth it!

8 Since I no longer go to nightclubs I say ban them to protect innocent drunks and drug dealers.

9 A good citizen will call 911 and wait for the police to bring some booze over. The cops can sing, too, and they have flashing lights on their cars.

10 fireworks indoors - always a bad idea.
