Just Pass the Gun Bill
If Representative Curry Todd wants to pass a real "guns in bars" bill, he can get it done:
I haven't talked to Curry Todd about this, but I'd bet the ranch that he doesn't want the restaurant/bar differentiation in the bill. The Tennessee General Assembly is hedging on this issue once again when it needs (as it has once before) to take a firm stand-either this bill is something the General Assembly is willing to support or it is not.
If fear of the press is what is causing the Legislature to defer action, Representatives and Senators should remember that no amount of rewriting this legislation will make it palatable to the mainstream media, which tends to lean further to the Left than most Tennessee voters do.
