  •  Gov. Bredesen vetoes Guns-n-Bars bill in TN (0+ / 0-)

    Good for him.  Unfortuately, all that the legislature needs for an override is a simple majority, and they are very Red.  I'm talking about their necks.  They are Republicans, too.  I'm not going to call them conservatives, because, since when is it conservative to want guns with your surf and turf.  And they are very pro-life and very religious.  It just seems counter-intuitive that they would protect life in the womb and then carelessly allow drunks to carry firearms.  Would Jesus allow guns in the Tabernacle..?  I'm with Gov. Bredesen.  If one (1) single, solitary person dies, especially a child, because of this NRA stunt, I definitely wouldn't want that on my conscience.  As for me personally, more power to them.  I'll go where I please without my gun (I really can't afford one), plus, I'm plenty enough of a man without one.
