A win is a win, but it was too close for me. I wish Darrell Henderson had been allowed to get to 200 yards rushing. I hope Jackson Dillon will be okay.

Re: “Bus Riders Concerned With MATA's Proposed Service Cuts

Part of being a major, viable city is having a strong, viable public transportation system. MATA has continued to fail in this area as the quality and frequency of its public transportation continually worsens. It is not the fault of the bus and trolley drivers. MATA's administration needs to be replaced by new people with a new vision: the current administration is too entrenched in corruption, incompetence, and mismanagement & needs to be thoroughly purged.

Re: “Memphis Activist Wants Murder Charges for Cops Who Shot Banks

THe fact the Mike Williams was on the scene handling the actual crimes and his son was involved shows blatant defiance to follow police procedures he is not an officer he should not been allowed on an active crime scene and who ever was in charged should be reprimanded also they are compromising the integrity of the investigation the night it happened.

Re: “Bus Riders Concerned With MATA's Proposed Service Cuts

The present M.A.T.A. administration needs to step down and go back to where they come from. They don't know the pulse of Memphis and its public transportation needs. Memphis and Shelby County government should get an administrator from Memphis to run Memphis Public Transportation.
The present M.A.T.A. administration is marinating in lunacy spending 13+million on 10 new electric buses to travel one route but can't come up with the money to keep a viable transportation system going that would serve the bulk of the citizens of Memphis region.
This is the city of Memphis' fault from its past discriminate actions of transportation disparity, through spatial management or mismanagement. THE CITY OF MEMPHIS OWE ITS CITIZENS
a real transportation system by any means necessary up to and including an increase in property taxes. A rail system would be nice.
If any of the newly elected and want to be elected city and county officials want to bring the city of Memphis into the 21st century they should consider a BIG BOY mass transportation system for the Memphis area.

"Traitor Joe's?" Really? You didn't have to accept the free reusable bag. It was a gift. And it's of no importance. Maybe we should welcome them instead of hassling them. amirite?

"...turned off their body cameras before the shooting" Sounds like premeditation.

Try to murder someone->get charged with attempted murder.

Seems legit. Justice is supposed to be blind, so it can't see a badge.

ATF is not authorized by the US Constitution to make regulations on the peoples rights to keep and bear arms..

Re: “Memphis Officials Partner with Gun Lobby

Though ATF Has No Authority To Ban Bump Stocks, They Seek Your Comments On Banning Them..
If they can ban a bump stock, then there is no reason they can't ban a semi-automatic rifle since there are some people who can produce the same results as bump stock without the bump stock.
Our Constitution provides zero, zip, nada authority to the ATF, the Justice Department nor the Executive Branch to ban anything. All legislative authority is invested in Congress, and Congress alone, and they are prohibited by the Second Amendment from infringing on the public's right to keep and bear arms, including those with bump stocks.
Obviously, this is coming from the White House. Both President Donald Trump and the National Rifle Association, as well as the Justice Department, were calling for a ban on the accessory that accelerates the firing of a semi-automatic rifle without converting it to fully automatic. However, as I said above, there is no authority for any agency in the Executive Branch to create a rule that bans an item pertaining to arms.
While the NRA is ready to sell out the rights of gun owners on this issue, as they have in the past, Gun Owners of America has pledged to fight it, calling it a "gross infringement of Second Amendment rights." What's most amazing is that the ATF and the DOJ believe they are the ones to propose these regulations. Take a look at the summary at the Federal Register where comments are being taken.
The motions that the Trump administration are going through are things that even the Obama administration didn't do. In fact, under Obama, bump stocks were made available.

Re: “Memphis Officials Partner with Gun Lobby

Dear NRA.....
Stop "negotiating" excuses to INFRINGE on OUR RIGHTS... If there must be background checks, let's try this idea... Are there any legislators that are interested in a UnConstitutional Background Check?
Since SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED means exactly that..

Lets try a Background Check that DOES NOT INFRINGE on anybodies RIGHTSA FULL, IN DEPTH background check for ALL Politicians, Bureaucrats, and ALL government employees, and set MINIMAL INTELLIGENCE, JOB SKILLS AND CHARACTER QUALITIES that must be met before they can run for office, be appointed or hired.

That way, WE, THE PEOPLE, get a much better class of politicians and bureaucrats, as well as EMPLOYEES that can be trained to do the jobs they are being hired for.

Any bets on how hard the political class will fight to prevent it?

THAT would be a Background Check that nearly ALL AMERICAN CITIZENS will support and I don't much care if the illegals and their sycophants don't like the idea.
