That ol' Second Amendment strikes again. Cause ya just never know when the British are a coming back.
State Republicans, in their no-doubt continuing effort to give every little piece of their soul to the NRA, approved the guns-in-parking-lots bill. Click right smack here for at bad boy.
You know. I actually had to ask a co-worker today if Tennessee had a waiting period before purchasing a handgun. No, really, I did. Cause if any state didn't have one . . . .
In the meantime, I guess I'm in the minority here, thinking that the guns-in-parking-lots thing is a bad idea. Don't get me wrong, I like to shoot things, break things, stab things and, generally, mess up things. I'm all for the death penalty, torture and public executions in front of minors, if only so they can learn a lesson.
Seriously, I have no problems with guns, gun ownership, etc.
But the reason there's a waiting period before you can purchase one is because it's actually a "cooling off" period. You know, don't get mad at someone, and get a gun and shoot them.
Soooooo, let's hope someone, who would really need that cooling off period, doesn't get mad at their boss. Cause that gun will now only be a parking lot away.
In the meantime, here's to bringing back that bill that would let folks bring their guns into bars.
I mean, it just sounds like a great idea. Second Amendment and all. Plus, alcohol and guns are awesome together.
UPDATE: One wise reader reminded me that the Intelligencia already approved guns in bars unless business owners object. So . . . . never mind.
