TN Gov signs constitutional carry bill into law

 Story here.  Make sure you give it a good look-see before you weigh in if you're not familiar with the subject.

Ya'll are gonna hate me.

I believe in the 2nd Amendment.

I believe that right should not be constrained.


I also know that there are many irresponsible people walking around.  Too many real deal law breakers.  Too many people that need mental help.  Too many people that lack training....


Before I joined the Sheriff's Dept I had a concealed carry license.  Do you know what you have to do to qualify for it?  You have to have a clean record (no felonies, drug offenses etc...).  You have to have attended an approved training course (less than a four hour class).  You have to demonstrate proficiency with your firearm of choice.  What did that consist of?  If I remember correctly you had to shoot 25(?) rounds at a target with the farthest distance being 15 yards away?

99% of Marines I know could do that in their sleep or after a night on the town trying to drink every bit of alcohol they could lay their hands on (an example..DON'T DO IT..someone will try but don't!).

Ok you say but its a right.


You do realize that every John, Jane and Harry/Harriet, will now be able to carry right?  Not just those "good" people that you attend church with but some of those people that hide in dark places.

You do realize that young men/women that participate in certain activities will be able to carry in public and if found will be 'good to go' if they haven't been connected to some of that illicit activity they participate in right?

This is one of those things that sounds good in theory but terrible in practice.

Oh and one other thing.  Did you know that my state doesn't charge Vets the lic fee?  They can also skip the class just by showing their DD-214.  All that's left to do is to show that you can hit a target almost close enough to touch.

Getting a lic isn't a heavy lift.

What say you.
