Rodney Stanley, opining on the restaurant carry bill (and displaying his utter cluelessness on the state of the law in Tennessee):
Instead of weapons being used to protect one's home and personal vehicle, they could now be used by citizens in public venues.You mean like they are right now? And have been for many years?
Look, Rodney, this probably comes as a shock, but all those folks around you in the mall and Wally World and the grocery store may already be legally packing heat, they just had to unstrap if they wanted to grab a burger for lunch at Applebee's instead of Hardee's. This law just fixes that. Unclench and return to normal breathing, okay? You're in no more danger of a shootout over the last bit of Bloomin' Onion at Outback next month than you've been over the organic arugula at Kroger's these last fifteen years or so...
That's some layers of editorial oversight, baby. Are you sure you're not wearing pyjamas?
