Scarlet letter?

TriggerFinger notes:

Legislation introduced in both the state House and state Senate will require that gun owners have a special license to purchase handguns, and will mark their status as a license holder with a “scarlet G for gun owner” on their existing drivers license.

I’ve skimmed the bill and can’t find such language. Granted, it could have changed since I read it.

    WHEW!? I thought this was in TN!! I didnt see that in the bill either, what I did see was yet another end run around our beloved 4th Amendment! They already have this authority its called PRobalbe Cause and with it you can…..GET A WARRENT, YOU KNOW LIKE IT SAYS RIGHT THERE IN THE CONSTITUTION UNDER THAT PART THAT SAYS 4TH AMENDMENT! Geez what a bunch of COMMIES! It is not that hard to get a warrent when you have the PC and if the officer doesnt have the PC then he should leave that CITIZEN alone and MIND HIS OWN BUSINESS! 10-98; 10-08, go PATROL……. BUY MORE AMMO

    Here’s how to kill the bill, as was done in WA state when this was proposed: Point out that gun ownership is a protected right for most Americans, and only a limited number of people have had that right suspended as a result of due process. Therefore, the correct way to do this would be to put a marking on the driver’s licenses of those that may not purchase handguns.

    At this point, some ACLU type will flip his lid because this will identify the bearer as a felon, drug abuser or any of the other prohibited person classes to anyone that views the license, and the proposal won’t even make it out of committee.
