Doesn't that droid detector also detect weapons? Did he have a special shield around it?

I dont think it detects weapons cause lots of other creatures have weapons too, like Greedo and Han. Weapons are not illegal on Tatooine so there'd be no reason to detect them.

Judging by the name it only makes sense to me that a droid detector would only detect droids and nothin else.
If it detected weapons also they would have called it a 'Droid & Weapon Detector'.

Besides, what about Han Solo, Greedo, and Obi-Wan. They all had weapons.

Your allowed to take blasters in, just not use them.

I could have sworn the droid detector would let the barkeep know who had weapons or something......don't know, my bad.... I just got home from work and was dead tired when I thought of this thread wasn't thinking............

Weapons were fine to have in there, which is obvious considering Han's was right out in the open. I think it was it was ok to have them in there (cause there were Imperial patrols there anyways to keep things settled down) but just not use them in there.

A lightsaber is also a weapon and it was found inside the cantina as well.

Mos Eisly is supposed to be like the old west, everybody carried guns because the law wasn't much use to them. Look at how everybody reacted when Greedo got cap-busted, they glanced in interest for a second and then got back to whatever they were doing.

I think Ponda concealed his weapon from Luke via his hoof/flipper-hands covering his normal hands. Why else have 2 sets of hands? :D

they never had 9/11 in the starwars universe so everyone could take thier box cutters into the cantina
