Last year, the Tennessee legislature overrode Gov. Phil Bredesen's earlier veto to pass a law that provided gun owners (which i am) the right to carry their weapon into any restaurant, except those whose biggest business was serving alcohol. The law was declared unconstitutionally vague by the state court, so now the Tennessee legislature is trying once again. But this time, the new bill includes, "No exclusions for where guns can be carried, as long as permit holders don't consume alcoholâ€. Heres what A+ NRA rated Tennnessee state legislature Republican Rep. Joe McCord had to say about this bill, "Essentially, NRA is saying to us, if you don't support and vote for carrying guns in bars, we will not endorse you, this line of reasoning borders on lunacy." Some legislatures voted for this bill, even though they voiced concern about it. I wonder if the NRA had anything to do with influencing them? As of now, Gov. Bredesen doesnt know if he'll veto the guns in bars bill or not. He doesnt think the revised version is any better. This is just another stupid bill by 2nd Amendment crusaders. Gov. McDonnell, a Republican in Virginia, signed a bill that would let people who had concealed carry permits into a place that serves alcohol. Granted the law doesnt allow gun holders to drink alcohol, but the gun lobby is trying to change that. Georgia is also trying to get similar measures into law, their bill would let people go into a bar with a weapon and get drunk, just if the person doesnt shoot the gun. Most want strict no gun policies in their businesses.
