  1. National Reciprocity?

    And now the NRA is saying that he's lying. It sucks belonging to an organization that is countering the very people that have been pushing for freedom.
  2. Legal Question

    "Should be" is the key word. But the people who write laws are crazy on purpose.
  3. Legal Question

    Seems like there should be a burden of proof on the state to show that the parents purposely became destitute before they can touch any property.
  4. So on the drive home a little while ago I was listening to a show called "Beyond the beltway" that comes out of Chicago. They were talking about gun control vs mental illness and what we can do. So the "pro gun" guy brings up about how Chicago has the third toughest gun laws, but one of the highest gun murder rates. The liberal lady says that something like 60% of the guns recovered in Chicago come from Indiana, then the gun guy refers to Steven Crowder from PJ media who tried to see if he could buy a gun at a gun show and was shut down across the board by sellers. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UEihkjKNhN8 At that point the lady brought up the "gunshow loophole"-that there are a ton of private sellers at gun shows, to which the guy replied that those people are still supposed to do background checks! So the gun guy had it flat wrong and while the liberal lady technically had it correct, was using it to make people assume that anyone can drive in from another state and just easily buy guns private party (and it is illegal for private party seller to sell to anyone out of state anyway.) But it's situations like this that make it so hard to have any kind of serious conversation with people because they heard people like these two morons and "think" they are educated on the issue. The fact that they can trace guns back to Indiana shows that a citizen of Indiana is at some point is committing a crime (giving them to citizens of IL.) But no, we have people in the media talking about guns that don't know guns, don't know the laws, and obviously cannot think logically....and I'm just talking about the people who are supposed to be the "pro gun" people! The sad part is that this is true on so many subjects, not just guns. The sad part is that things like guns laws are super easy to find the answer on most of the time (unless we are talking about crazy nuances that only a good old TN lawmaker can add to the law;)) )
  5. Guns N More Burglarized

    It does seems a little negligent on the owners part that the only thing between the thieves and the firearms were a couple of pieces of easily breakable glass. I mean, that's the same security level as if they were in a vending machine!
  6. "Zippos" Sale on Amazon

    I have the hand warmer and love it. My job (video production) requires me to be outdoors often during winter and it's a million times better than the little chemical warmer packets (though, I normally have them on me too)
  7. Except those laws don't apply because of driver's licenses, it's because cars are sold across state lines. So that argument doesn't exactly fly. For example, I noticed this morning under the hood of my F150 that it was not for sale in CA, but I obviously was able to buy it in TN. You are also considering that this law would apply to carrying, not to the purchase of items. Just like the feds cannot make traffic laws, they would not have the power to make certain carry laws. I totally understand the concern, but the bill only forces states to acknowledge all other states carry permits. No more no less. I would be more worried about states like NY simply making it impossible for anyone to carry pretty much anywhere with a carry permit (they would be happy to screw the special people that do currently have carry permits.)
  8. Verizon vs Straightalk

    FYI, depending on which phone you use (zipcode may be a factor too) you can either be on ATT or Verizon while on StraightTalk. Also investigate Cricket if you can use ATT. I've been with them a few years and been really happy. Cricket is especially great if you have multiple lines as each line you add takes $10 of, and it's compounding. So second line is $10 off, third line is $20 off, forth is $30, and if you have the fifth line on the $40 plan, it's free. So I have 5 lines, each with 4GB a month for $100 out the door. Pretty hard to beat...if ATT service is good in your area.
  9. What park can't you bring your guns in? There's not a park in TN, local, state, or federal that you can't bring a firearm into either without a permit in your car, or on your person outside your car with a permit. The only way they can currently ban guns is if a area is sectioned off and there is an entrance with metal detectors.
  10. So there is an upcoming white supremacist rally Saturday in Knoxville to fight against against the removal of a monument honoring confederate soldiers (I think the WS are evil, but I also don't think removal of monuments is in our best interest either.) So while reading an article I noticed that they are going to close a street and make it a "no weapons zone." Looking at -1359, I am not really sure that is legal as I don't think the writers intended public roads to fall under "property" in the law. If the local government is allowed to control streets in such a way, we will constitute to see our rights eroded. Of course, this is the same mayor that doesn't think Chilhowee PARK is a park... http://www.wbir.com/news/local/ahead-of-planned-protest-mayor-burchett-tells-white-supremacists-theyre-not-welcome/466656000
  11. What's the latest on campus Carry for students?

    You'd also think a republican majority wouldn't up a tax when we are sitting on almost two billion dollars, but we have republicans, not conservatives. That's become a big difference.
  12. Merchants of Beer-Knoxville

    Interesting, it wasn't posted when I went there a little over a week ago.
  13. Okay, now your question makes sense. The former state law said suppressors were illegal, but there was written into the law an exception that if you had the federal tax stamp for the suppressor, it was legal. Now it's no longer illegal period by state law, just still illegal for the feds without the tax stamp. Practically, you are correct. It really changes nothing except that now if you have one illegally, only the feds could go after you. As I said before, it was a bill to prepare for the hopeful repeal of suppressors from the NFA so no one could get in trouble if they are taken off. Whatever the case, I am always for removing "illegal" things from state law when they are pointlessly illegal-even if it doesn't make much difference practically.
  14. You are correct, the quick reading I did the other day I saw defense in the section before (c) and my brain just transposed it. I read somewhere that there was concern that the language which was the issue was, " is in full compliance with the requirements" and that could cause issue. But I am all in favor of any "defense" or "exception" being removed from the law and things fully legal. Honestly, if you wanted to try pushing the TN firearms freedom act you could do so with no punishment from the state, just the jerk ATF would be after ya:)
