Todd Curry was appointed chairman of the republican "firearms task force" created to review Tennessee gun laws. The next meeting will be held October 26, 2011 at 1:00pm in room LP31. House majority leader McCormick on July 13, 2011 appointed a bunch of republicans and one alleged drunk driver to lead them.
Haslam wanted to send a message that gun legislation would not be addressed. He did that by lobbying for a speaker who is anti-gun.
Doug Jackson may have supported some gun legislation, but it was usually watered down. Remember when Rep.Doug Jackson called out TFA founder John harris on the Floor of the House in 1997?
Williams has no place in the Republican party.
I don't think anyone believes Haslam is strong on gun rights. If Pilot policy prohibits employees from keeping guns in locked vehicles then the policy is wrong. Haslam is wrong for depriving employees a ability to defend themselves. Haslam appears to have a multiple personality going on. Do we believe the weak on gun rights Haslam or the Haslam who would stand up for civil rights? Unfortunately, I think the former.
I think the ad is harsh and the TFA meeting wasn't "behnd closed doors". It was open to the public and they are always open to the public. Haslam, to my knowledge, has never said Felons should carry guns is there a cite for that? It was reported today that Haslam flipped on the issue of handgun owners being able to keep guns locked in personal vehicle on employers property. If that is true he is a flip floper and voters should always beware of those types of politicians.
If Haslam is flip flopping then the public needs to know. I appreciate someone asking the tough questions.
