http://www.tennessean.com/article/D4/20091120/NEWS01/91120018/Tenn.+guns-in-bars+law+struck+down+Nashville Tenn. (AP) - A judge ruled Friday that a new law allowing handguns in Tennessee bars and restaurants is unconstitutional.
Chancellor Claudia Bonnyman said the law, enacted earlier this year over the veto of Gov. Phil Bredesen, is "fraught with ambiguity."
She ruled after an hour of arguments in a suit brought by a group of Tennesseans, many of then restaurant owners. The law allowed handgun permit holders to take their weapons into places serving alcohol, providing the establishment makes more than 50% of its profits from food.
There was no immediate word from attorneys for the state about an appeal.
The measure took effect July 14. Thirty-seven states had similar legislation at the time.
Once again, Tennessee shows its stupidity when it comes to common sense.
I would like to ask the morons who brought the suit, "Where are the drunk permit holders who have shot up all these bars and restaurants since the law went into effect July 14th? Where are these streets that would run red with blood?
