In Tennessee

Looks like our legislature finally got a pro-gun bill to Haslam’s desk, without it dying in committee. We’ll see how he reacts. NRA is encouraging you to contact his office and urge him to sign it.

    I sent a note on Monday in which I urged him to “End Gun Free Kill Zones”.

    His office phone: 615-741-2001

    Here in Austin, Texas, a few months back the legislature passed concealed, permitted carry on state college campuses. PSH ensued from the usual crowd.

    Then a short while ago, a homeless teen well known to the police raped and murdered a coed walking alone back to her dorm late at night, right there on the University of Texas campus.

    The PSH crowd has gone very, very quiet.

    Another one of the “we’re the only ones” legislation. If you’re a commuter student, visiting your kid on campus or otherwise, you’re just SOL if you want to carry.

    It’s awfully hard to be satisfied with these baby steps we get from the TN legislature, when we see other states walking around in Seven League Boots.

    That’s because you Tennesseans are such ungovernable, uncontrollable, violent, barbaric creatures in the country. Naw, just kidding. It’s always bemused me that pro-gun groups and individuals don’t call out the idiots that predict blood running through the streets if Tennessee, Missouri, Kentucky, Nevada, Massachusetts, allows gun ownership/open carry/concealed carry.

    After all this time and all the locations that have had decent gun laws and NOT had any of the predicted bad outcomes happen by this time the message is, well okay Florida can get away with it, but allowing such things in Tennessee will cause everyone to get killed in the streets. Isn’t that whatever politician or anti-gun person basically saying “you people suck too much to be trusted”?

    How come the pro-gun folks don’t start couching it in those terms? “Why does the governor think we are all stupid, violent, incompetent?”

    I keep insisting, demanding that our elected officials keep their oath to the State Constitution. There in the Declaration of Rights, the citizens of this State DECLARE our right to keep and bear ( which means CARRY) arms for self defense. The Legislature is only DELEGATED the power to regulate the WEARING of arms with a view to prevent crime, that is, holstered, open or concealed. There would only maybe one or two gun laws IF, IF, our State government OBEYED their job description!!!!

    Ron, the trouble is that in the state of Tennessee, the wearing/carrying of weapons in public is considered to be a crime by itself, and from that (faulty) premise, carve-outs are made, such as Handgun Carry Permits, etc. It’s all “you may do so because the law says you can” versus “you may do so because there’s no law that says you can’t.”

    But when Tennessee finally decided that it was okay to carry in restaurants and bars, I was able to squash an out-of-state co-worker’s fears of being gunned down in a Tennessee bar that the same exact behavior had been allowed for decades in his home state. “Oh, Tennesseans are more prone to violence than XXX-ians?”

    And from what I understand, Florida has their own RINO asshole that quashes every piece of pro-gun legislation that he doesn’t personally like.

    This time around, no incumbent gets my vote, if for no other reason than to influence the behavior of the remaining office holders. “For the encouragement of others” you know.

    @rickn8or, that’s incredible!!! They consider a crime what is a right of the people by the plain wording of the document to which they take an oath!! What ignorance! No, it’s flagrant criminality in that they take away what has plainly been declared, belonging to people and inviolable by the government!!!

    No, itís flagrant criminality in that they take away what has plainly been declared, belonging to people and inviolable by the government!!!

    That’s okay, after they take that right, they sell it back to you.

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