"An armed society is a polite society"..
- Robert A. Heinlein
Looks like lawmakers in Tennessee are waking up to the fact that "Gun-free zones" do not keep Americans safe.
Tennessee is introducing a bill that will allow Conceal carry holders to sue property owners that prohibit them from carrying in their establishments.
According to the American Column,
In a story originally reported by The Tennsessean, Senator Dolores Graham has introduced Bill 1736 in order to balance the rights of the second amendment guaranteed by the Constitution and property rights that are inherent to anyone who owns property in America.“It is the intent of this section to balance the right of a handgun carry permit holder to carry a firearm in order to exercise the right of self-defense and the ability of a property owner or entity in charge of the property to exercise control over governmental or private property,” the bill reads.the problem with the bill is the fact that:
this bill does not extend to establishments that are legally required to be gun free zones, leaving people defenseless and lacking reparations upon being injured in an incident on government property.Gun free zones, according to Presidential candidate Donald Trump, are invitations to bad guys who want to use guns in order to do harm.
If elected, he promises to do away with gun free zones here in the U.S. in schools and on military bases:
Of course, the Obama administration, and the left, want to instead make Americans less safe by introducing legislation that in effect disarms citizens and makes them more vulnerable to lawless thugs. The President's daughters go to school everyday with armed security, but they want your children to go to "gun free zoned" schools where they are vulnerable. Obama and our government Representatives have armed Secret Service details following them around, but they want the populace disarmed because "Guns don't make us safer"... (as Hillary Clinton has recently said).
Yet, the Dalai Lama XIV once said:
“If someone has a gun and is trying to kill you, it would be reasonable to shoot back with your own gun.”Hopefully we can get more State Representatives to look into passing similar legislation.
