More TN Goobers and guns

Unnamed Democrat chimes in:

While I am a strong supporter of second amendment rights, I am shocked at Bill Haslam’s lack of common sense and total disregard for public safety. This is irresponsible” said McWherter. “Bill Haslam is willing to put the safety of Tennessee families in jeopardy, and this speaks to the core of his character.

You know, like all that danger folks are in in Alaska, Vermont and Arizona, who have similar laws.

Looks to me like the TFA meeting turned into a sort of threeper love fest. Haslam seemed to handle himself OK, I hear. It’s a tough crowd.

Every time Jeff Woods says gun freaks, it makes me smile.

    Is it wrong of me to want a “Gun Freak” t-shirt?

  2. Rustmiester Says:

    Sounds like an opportunity for an enterprising t-shirt maker to me.

    To quote John Ross (author of Unintended Consequences), I am a part of the gun culture.

    And that is a good thing.

    When someone starts a statement with “While I am a strong supporter of second amendment rights…” you know that they aren’t. Either they’re lying or they are clueless as to what rights the Second Amendment actually enumerates.

  5. Oleg Volk Says:

    Haslam doesn’t seem very pro-RKBA to me either.

    I give the unnamed Democrat great credit for avoiding the more common usage, “I support the 2nd Amendment, but….”

    Such anti-rights bigots at least have to work a little harder to hide their loathing of other individuals’ free exercise of inherent rights.

    Also I think the caricature of Embody as a gun freak is interesting but beside the main point of the actions he has taken. I think the lines summarizing the importance of Embody et al.’s approach to gun rights is the following:

    “After Haslam expresses some resistance, Embody and his buddies pounce:

    Q: Really, is it a privilege or a right?”

    The government has to keep in mind that it has limited powers, and citizens have rights protected against state infringement or we will eventually all be up a very deep creek of effluent.

    When a politician claims to be a strong supporter of the 2nd Amendment while supporting infringing on the right of the people to keep AND CARRY (bear means carry) arms, they being totally inconsistent and nonsensical.

    Here in Tennessee, our candidates need to be asked what Article I, Section 26 of the Tennessee Declaration of Rights says and what does it mean.
