Tennessee legislators take aim at gun limits

Tennessee is an open carry state. Many of us are not ashamed of our guns and a great deal of my fellow Tennesseans are not afraid of a gun. BTW, Tennessee does not issue CONCEALED permits.  (Mar 31, 2009 | post #2)

Aurora, IL

Crime-ridden Aurora? Perception's not reality

I lived in Aurora from 1975 to 1989. It was a great town to grow up in. After saying that, I would not set foot back in Aurora. I will not be attending my 20th high school reunion at West Aurora High. I now live in Nashville, TN. Great town that has the 'feel' of the Aurora I knew in my youth, and I can carry a gun to protect myself from the criminals who migrate here from Chicago.  (Feb 11, 2009 | post #15)

Gun Control does work, just look at Chicago's 500 murders...

And how does this apply today? Blacks aren't the only ones disarmed by Chicago's gun ban. I've not heard of any cross burnings in Chicago. Today's gun control is to ensure that the populous in in fear and reelects those politicians who pander fear.  (Jan 22, 2009 | post #10)

why did all black people vote obama for president

While I would dearly love to see a disaster, of biblical scale, wipe Washington D.C off the map on January 20th (what better day to eliminate the massive head of the monstrosity known as the Federal goverment), I would not wish harm to Obama individually. If you are infering that Obama will be hit by scandal, I will have to disagree. The mainstreeam media have been lining up since late 2007 to worship the ground he walks on. I doubt that will change, they still worship at the altar of all things Kennedy. His first two years in office will have a Democrat controlled Congress, and there is no way they would ever start impeachment procedings on their percieved Messiah. I would guess that Obama will serve out his 4 year term and fade into obsurity. Much like Millard Filmore. (Millard Filmore, who's that?) Exactly.  (Jan 18, 2009 | post #352)

Not sure where I heard it, but those who walk down the middle of the road tend to get run over. Many liberals and conservatives "think for themselves". They just came to conclusions that are different from each other and similar to those of the two major parties. Infering that only those who are moderates think for themselves is somewhat like saying that physisists don't think for themselves because Einstein came up with the Theory of Relativity.  (Jan 18, 2009 | post #351)

He may have been the better of the two if only a Democrat and Republican were the only one represented on the ballot. My ballot at about 10 different candidates from as many different parties. At least 5 of those were better than Obama. I still contend that the majority of blacks that voted, voted for Obama not because he was (percieved to be) black. but because he was a Democrat. His race may have been a reason for many to actually vote, but they would have voted Democrat anyway (or stayed home).  (Jan 17, 2009 | post #312)

How can you tell that a liberal has lost a debate? They start calling people idiots.  (Jan 14, 2009 | post #243)

Help repeal Virginia CC Restaurant Ban

I agree, here in TN, we can't even step into a place that serves alcohol while packing. Even though there is a seperate statute that says we can not consume alcohol while carrying. I would think that .04-.06 would be too high, I would like a .01-.02 limit. I do agree that there should be a specified limit set in law to prevent potential abuses, either by citizens or law enforcement.  (Jan 14, 2009 | post #7)

Help repeal Virginia CC Restaurant Ban

Personally, I like the mandatory Open Carry in establishments that serve alcohol. I will say that Gov. Kain was a moron for signing that bill. Anyone carrying a gun should not be consuming alcohol.  (Jan 14, 2009 | post #3)

As a vet, I think the only massive spending should be for the military. There are hundreds of programs that are duplicated on the Federal, State and local levels. Those should be consolidated and/or eliminated. Then there is the massive amounts of waste. The Federal goverment, for one, spends money on a great many things that aren't even in its mandate (US Constitution). The "War on Drugs" and education are two examples of items that the Federal goverment has no business. These are items that should be determined and controlled by the states. In TN, we are required to have a license to carry openly or concealed. Not ideal, but better than many other states (CA, NY, IL, HI and many others). At least there aren't any Tennesseans harrasses or arrested like PA.  (Jan 14, 2009 | post #212)

Since when did a fire engine stater cost $4.7 trillion? That is the total combined Federal, State, and local spending for FY 2008.  (Jan 13, 2009 | post #208)
