Tennessee Governor Phil Bredesen has vetoed a bill that would’ve allowed gun owners in his state to bring their favorite toys into businesses where alcohol is served, delivering a rare legislative defeat to the NRA and other gun proponents that have seemingly been writing U.S. gun laws for years.
That such a bill was ever created demonstrates both the sheer power and absurdity of the gun lobby. But after at first being incensed by it, I realized there may actually be a benefit to a bill like this; if Second Amendment fetishists go too far with their legislative agenda, they may eventually end up shooting themselves in the foot with regard to popular support.
Keep it up, guys.
