It Isn't Just Guns In "Bars"

The press has never truly understood what 'guns in bars' was really all about:

Tennesseans have been left with the impression that this law was about letting people pack heat in Tootsie's. While the legislation certainly allowed for that (provided the owners of Tootie's didn't object), the purpose wasn't to insure that honky-tonk patrons could have big irons on their hips, but to insure that those who had concealed-carry permits had the benefit of personal protection if they needed it when taking their family out to dinner-a regular activity for many, if not most Tennesseans.

Actually, I think the law merely allows persons with right-to-carry permits to bring concealed weapons into a restaurant that serves alcohol--not quite the same as a bar.
