    Attorney general's opinion says pardoned drug felons can have firearms but not handguns

    By Associated Press

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Tennessee Attorney General Bob Cooper has issued a legal opinion that says people who have received pardons for their felony drug convictions can own any type of firearm except handguns.

    Cooper writes in the opinion released Wednesday that Tennessee's firearms ban for felons has exceptions for those who have been pardoned, had their convictions expunged or have had their civil rights restored.

    But Cooper says the law doesn't provide those exceptions for handgun ownership by people convicted of certain violent crimes and drug felonies.

    The opinion was requested by House Republican Caucus Chairman Glen Casada of Franklin. Legal opinions issued by the attorney general indicate his office's interpretation of the law, but unlike court opinions, they aren't binding

    Cooper, who is a pin head by the way, also said recently that landlords have every right to ban renters from having a gun in their apartment or rented house.

    Now, I understand about private property rights but, the 2nd Amendment is in the constitution. It is a right. Would pin head Cooper be ok with a landlord stomping on freedom of speech in a rented apartment or house?

    Attorney General Bob Cooper, a class A, top notch, pin head.
