I love Tennessee. Mostly for its natural beauty. Certainly not for its pervasive dumbness.
Seems like the very people who are elected to look after our best interests are hellbent on enabling and facilitating the very worst.
Thanks to the legislative freedom afforded everyone in this state, anybody - and that literally is anybody - can own an open or conceal carry a firearm without having any formal training, education, practical use or common sense.

I pray that ignorance is not bliss or we are surely headed into a darkness this nation has never seen - including the Civil War.
We desperately need voices of reason to change the path we are on.
