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

Every state that borders Tennessee (except North Carolina) allow guns in establishments that serve alcohol. How many bar shootouts have you heard of in Birmingham, Atlanta, Louisville, Little Rock, St. Louis, etc? Fact is you havn't. Georgia went through this same argument last year (except Gov.

No shootouts, none. Concealed Carry Permit holders have a better criminal track record than the police do.

Takes only a few seconds, and its posted off limits to law abiding citizens. Of course, I will excersize my rights of free choice and only patronize restaurants that do not post

VETO OVERRIDE COMING UP!
