One more reason to avoid Memphis.
All he needs to do is declare all of Memphis a Navy installation then ...voila he has a gun free zone... which is what the criminal element there wants!

The law that says a person can keep a loaded weapon in their car here in Tennessee without a HCP was enacted about a year ago-it treats a persons car as under the Castle Doctrine which is a State law-so I say he can go pound sand.
I have lived in the Memphis area for 20 years and would feel naked without my carry piece-screw these Democrat's and their hostile intent towards us citizens.
For those unfamiliar with Rallings or Memphis, let me provide a few facts. A - Rallings was a long-time member of the MPD Shooting Team, is into guns and is generally supportive of gun owners. I haven't always seen eye-to-eye with him on every decision he's made since he became the director but he's a decent guy. B - Although I haven't had a chance to ask him about this particular area, I highly doubt that he's talking about trying to stop people from completely carrying a handgun in their vehicle. If you aren't in law-enforcement, especially in TN, then you probably wouldn't know that the amount of firearms being stolen out of vehicles has jumped tremendously since the law was modified to allow folks to carry a firearm in their vehicle without a carry permit. It's because so many people are leaving a firearm in their vehicle all the time now. Also, now that there are AR-15 and AK-47 "pistols," many times these are the types of firearms the bad guys are rolling around with. More and more 5.56/.223 and 7.62x39 casings are showing up at crime scenes instead of the 9mm or .45 casings that used to be laying on the ground.
Now understand, I'm very supportive of all citizens being able to to own firearms and exercise their God-given rights. However, all of you should know by now that, especially in a liberal town like Memphis, the MSM may not always give you all the information about a subject or may slant the content to fit their agenda. With it seeming like all big city police chiefs or sheriffs being anti-gun, and especially with situations developing like the one in VA now, it's easy to quickly jump to conclusions. But until you've heard it straight from the horse's mouth, I wouldn't just assume you've got the straight skinny on a subject.

Soldier, I'm pretty sure the incident I was talking about was more than 22-23 years ago. I believe it was back when I was still playing IPSC. I quit doing that about '91. Seems like it was back when we were at the old range. That range went away in '89. Maybe they didn't learn from their first mistake and it happened to them twice?
