I've been watching this as a neighbor to the south. I hope some of my TN friends can clear something up for me---1. The sponsor of the bill, Rep. Todd, is not listed in the vote of non-concurrance. 2. Jimmy Neifeh voted to concur with the Senate version--this scares me. 3. Has the Governor made any public statements about how he is leaning on this bill? Does the Speaker Emeritus know if the Senate version went to the Gov, he would veto it?
Please let me know your thoughts
Mr. Naifeh is, we hope, playing out a losing hand to the bitter end in hopes that something unexpected will happen to turn the tide....

I read in the paper that the problem was because they couldn't agree whether to make it ok to carry in all parks or to make up to each county, and local PD, not just in parks but only in certain areas of the parks too....what a stupid thing to try to add, imagine being able to keep track of all of that,what would they do, paint lines in the grass ?
I have to congratulate myself for writing the longest run-on sentence in history !
I'm too young to be this old!
Getting old isn't good for you!
The parks bill is SB1518--back in front of Sen Judiciary Comm tomorrow afternoon.
