    The notoriously anti-carry Memphis Commercial Appeal says it wants your opinion on a bill before the TN General Assembly this week.

    Let them have it!

    I just posted my response....

    I have no more problem with licensed handgun carriers being around me in a resturant eating dinner than I do having licensed handgun carriers being in a Walmart. Carrying inside somewhere like Walmart is currently legal! Seeing firearms in resturants, state parks, ball games, or anywhere else doesn't bother me. Last I knew about it, I can still carry a butcher knife into a state park! You see, it is those with criminal intent that will carry everywhere regardless of the law that pose the problem. Why should I not have the right to defend myself in those places just like the others?

    Yes, I believe that Handguns should be allowed in public parks with a valid Conceal Carry permit. If you look at the statistics, there are very few permit holders that get arrested for either violent or non-violent offenses. They went through the necessary steps to legally carry a weapon, that criminals don't, because criminals don't obey our laws.

    i sent one too, the gist being, "restricting guns in any area results in only criminals having guns"

    My email:

    Why should anyone be concerned that a person that has been trained, has
    their backgrounds checked, and is obviously a law-abiding citizen might be
    armed? I'd rather have someone around that is LEGALLY carrying a sidearm
    than the criminal element that will carry whether it's legal or not.

    I'm not a resident of your area - I live in Texas, but I find that most
    folks don't stop to really consider that those legally carrying a weapon are
    much more likely to be peaceful, law-abiding citizens than those that carry
    without a permit!
