Re: “Bredesen to Veto Guns-in-Bars Bill; Override Expected

You make two very good points Bryan, that criminal won't obey carry laws and that the wishes of the majority should establish the rules.

However, I question whether it's the majority speaking or just the loudest person at the party. As for criminals not obeying carry laws, that assumes that the solution to that is for more people to be carrying guns. I would rather have one criminal with a gun than one criminal with a gun and ten hillbillies with guns, no idea how to use them, and itchy trigger fingers. I'm not saying that all gun-carrying folks are dangerous, only that many have no training and carry guns only to feed their testosterone-fueled ego.

As a strong supporter of gun control laws, I patiently await the day when criminals can't get guns on any street corner and when citizens don't feel the need to carry a gun to go out to eat.

Until then, I'll try to be nice to people and not get my head blown off. There is no doubt in my mind that this bill will lead to more violence, more officers killed in the line of duty, and a more dangerous state to live in.
