Tennessee Wants to Loosen Its Draconian Gun Laws
The Tennessean reports how they want to be more like Arizona.
Their wish list includes opening all parks in the state to handguns and making it easier to carry guns into school and workplace parking lots. Advocates also plan to test the water for legislation modeled after a law passed in Arizona in 2010 that would make a handgun carry permit optional, in what would be the broadest change to Tennessee’s gun laws in nearly 20 years.
I suppose wanting to emulate Arizona says it all. Or, perhaps we learn everything we need to about Tennessee by the simple fact that they consider their own gun control too strict and in need of a loosening.
