Gun Bills Task Force

I guess they realized they sort of abandoned us this past legislative go ’round. But now, the republicans in the state are gonna do something about it:

“This Task Force will study ways we can protect the Second Amendment rights of Tennesseans and will make recommendations to our Majority about good public policy we all can support,” Majority Leader Gerald McCormick said in a statement announcing the move. “I think this is a worthwhile effort to streamline the process and build consensus within the General Assembly.”

The task force should help Republican leaders manage debate over guns next year. Gun rights groups have complained that the Republican majority did little to roll back restrictions, creating pressure on lawmakers to take up the issue next year.

You dance with the one who brung ya. MJM is pleased.

    The exerpted quote is a lot of blah blah blah and no actual anything. Exactly what I would expect from Republicans, who have to talk about what they should pretend to believe, rather than actually believing something and therefore knowing what to say without having to call a meeting on it.

    Step 1; Run for office on really, really definate ideas.

    Step 2; Once in office, blink at the public like deer in the headlights.

    Step 3; Call a meeting to figure out why you’re in office, and what the hell you might do with your new found position, for which you have no genuine purpose whatsoever.

    Step 4; Lose the next election.

    Step 5; Blame media, saying, “Our hands were tied – they were killing us in the media. What could we do?”

    Yeah; Exactly.
