Yeah, I DID notice a tad bit of ad homina and disinformation in the article.
Almost like he didn’t read the bill or didn’t have any familiarity with Tennessee handgun carry permit laws or anything. Not to mention a complete lack of knowledge about what happened to this same bill last year.
“Ad homines” woud be a plural of ad hominem, but I like Mr N8or’s twist a little because it sounds like Kramden & Norton doing formal rhetoric. Too bad, but without using it as the subject of the sentence, there’s no way to make it come out hominy, hominy, hominy. And now I’m hungry.
It’s so common in Iran, they named an ayatollah after it.
Well, it COULD be worse in the Tennessee Legislature; as I commented elsewhere re: California’s new package of gun control bills: “… it seems California, New York and New Jersey are playing a game of “That’s not gun control; THIS is gun control!”
Or as the rest of us call it “Doubling down on stupid.”
This bill is just an incremental move toward the full exercise of Article I, Section 26 of the Tennessee Cosntitution Declaration of Rights and the reciprocal right in the U.S. Bill of Rights. Besides, what other rights would they have businesses violate INSIDE our vehicles?
How would Pith in the Wind’s editorial staff (or writers) feel if the Tn General Assembly passed legislation explicitly authorizing employers to prohibit liberal bumper stickers on employees’ cars parked on employer lots.
There would be no end to the caterwauling about the wholesale deprivation of First Amendment rights on employer properties.
Someone needs to suggest this employer edict to Ronnie Barrett, although I don’t think it would have the desired effect with his employees.
