But church and state or something

So, the TN AG says that school events at churches are like school events at schools and you can’t go carrying your gun there.

    So wherever the children are, they want them in gun- free zones. That’s where the mass shootings occur. But by what authority does the State claim to be able to violate its Declaration of Rights on private property?!

  2. wizardpc Says:

    The law says you can’t carry on property “in use by a school or school board.”

    So when the band bus pulls into taco bell after a competition, that taco bell just became a gfz.

    The law is so broad that an argument can be made that public roads are gun free zones because they are in use by school busses.

  3. Ron W Says:

    The law is not only broad,but blatantly unconstitutional and theteforeUNLAWFUL! Article I, Section 26 of the Tennessee Declaration of Rights supersedes that law. The citizens of this State have declared their right to keep AND CARRY arms for their self defense. The State Legislature only has power to regulate the WEARING of arms with a view to prevent crime. That is,
    the State may only legislate HOW firearms are carried or worn such as holstered, concealed, open etc. It has NO power over what,when or where!!! Governments have NO rights, only delegated powers which are granted to them by the people in their constitutions!!!

    “The constitutions of most of our States assert, that all power is inherent in the people; that they may exercise it by themselves, in all cases to which they think themselves competent, (as in electing their functionaries executive and legislative, and deciding by a jury of themselves, in all judiciary cases in which any fact is involved,) or they may act by representatives, freely and equally chosen; that it is their right and duty to be at all times armed…” (Thomas Jefferson to John Cartwright, 1824. Memorial Edition 16:45, Lipscomb and Bergh, editors)

    Does it also apply when the kids are reciting their Islamic oaths?

    Hey, how is the state of Tennessee going to selectively prosecute people with vague and conflicting laws if you keep bringing them to the attention of the reading public?

    Groan. We can have freedom, or we can have thousands of picky rules. But, we can’t have both. Herb’s opinion is a good argument for constitutional carry — period.

    So, how soon till some anti-homeschool/anti-gun (the venn diagram probably has quite an overlap) jackboot realizes that if he can’t go after a family for home-schooling, he can at least bust them for having guns in a gun-free-zone (aka, their living room).

    Yes, it’s a stretch, but since when has that stopped the anti-liberty crowd.

  9. Ron W Says:

    Much of Officialdom wants children defenseless in gun free zones to enable the mass murderers. Such tragedies fit well with their reactionary agenda to disarm us.

  10. Oddball Says:

    Seems pretty consistent to me. Guns are banned at school events, full stop. Doesn’t matter where that event is.

    Is dumb, but is law.

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
