From Capitol Hill . . .
Good news from Capitol Hill for all Tennesseans today. The State Senate passed a bill to allow carry permit holders to carry their guns into restaurants and other venues where alcohol is sold. The bill does not allow the carry holder to consume alcohol while carrying their gun, and venues could prohibit guns. This is an important step to stop the state from infringing on the rights of Tennesseans. The bill now goes to the State House for consideration. While I'm certain that the liberal, anti-gun crowd will cry and scream, does it not make more sense for someone who the state has authorized to carry a gun to have it on their person rather than left in an empty car where it could be easily stolen?
