I just found this forum as a result of a search for a news article. Apparently the news item had been discussed in a thread here. Anyway, this appeared to be a good forum to join.
I have been a permitted carrier for over 12 years and am an active member of The Tennessee Firearms Association. I also am a regular letter writer to my representatives in Washington and Nashville. I have also visited Nashville on several occasions in support of legislation.
I often do research on the internet when preparing for such a trip. This is what I was doing when I found this site.
I hope the members here can be a valuable resource of good information.
