Rights and Responsibilities
Even the right to bear arms has responsibilities with it
However, running around Radnor Lake with a miniature AK-47 in plain sight just to be showing off does not advance the cause, or best demonstrate the reasons that many Tennesseans believe that self-protection ought not be limited to those with permits. What it does do is simply frighten people and draw undue attention to the weapon carrier. How does that really advance the cause of gun rights? What it really causes is the unknowing to say "who is that crazy fellow running around with that really odd looking machine gun pistol strapped to his hip."
