So, in an emergency the governor is ok with bad guys raping and pillaging like vikings? Guess he doesn't remember Katrina. I guess he doesn't want to be re-elected to badly, Send him to the UK may be he would feel safer since no one has any firearms
"[T]he people are not to be disarmed of their weapons.
They are left in full possession of them."

My wife and I have rethought the idea of going back to TN to retire amongst her folk. I am just plum amazed at the crime levels and the stupidity of the politicos there. Florida seems much safer.
You have to make the shot when fire is smoking, people are screaming, dogs are barking, kids are crying and sirens are coming.
Ego will kill you. Leave it at home.
cant wait to see the administration for TN start backpedalling to explain why they want that power over their people so bad...
I have no personal knowledge of that administration and don't know if there was something else in the bill he was objecting to. But having said that...
Power drunk people don't care about history or what is right, they just can't stand to lose any power.

Phil Bredesen isn't from TN, he is from the North.
He doesn't fully represent TN, no politician can.
He is a career politician in that many believe he will run for President in 2012.
Well, I sent His Excellency an email. We'll see if it does any good....
All in all though...the GunShine State laws give a lot more latitude than in most other places...gotta' love FL.
Good Luck in TN...
Stay armed...stay safe!
