The liberal press went berserk. I remember they kept saying, 'they call it the wild west bill.' ... Not that the press would be biased about stuff like this. I know it's going to shock you just a tad. They said we're going to have shootouts at stop signs. We're going to have people that fight over a loaf of bread in a grocery store and kill each other. We now have 270,000 people, including me, with a handgun carry permit here in the state of Tennessee. You know how much trouble we've had with them? None. None. ... I'm proud that I've helped sponsor this legislation.
