  1. I would rather trade for items I need, and yes it is all one lot, 3 years in my possession. I picked it up to work up loads for my .338-06 AI but found Reloader 15 to give me a better performance. I need some Dillon 650 toolhead stands, and another set of 9 mm dies.
  2. I have 5-1 lb canisters of Varget, am needing some Tightgroup. Located in Jackson area will travel reasonable distance.
  3. Had a fair crowd, 120+, Speaker of the House came and talked to the group, members met with their representatives. Good day overall, would have loved to had a lot more, but there was not the impetus that Virginia had.
  4. I think it will be basically car carry, letting you take it with you. Not enough police out there to increase contact, except for traffic stops I have not had an officer contact in 20 years. If you are not acting like a thug I don't expect LE to be manhandling common folk going about their business armed.
  5. "Without permits, officers won’t be able to differentiate between someone who can legally carry a gun and someone who can’t, Weirich said" I had a conversation last time (2016) this was up, at the same restaurant, about 10 Sheriff's were eating lunch after some mandatory training at the TBI downtown Jackson. I knew most of them and stopped by to speak to them and ask their opinions My Madison County guy (Former TBI) was virulently opposed, said he wanted to know when his guys rolled up in Lincoln Courts and saw a guy holding a gun he needed to know if he had a permit, if he was legal... I asked how he would know without contact and asking to see the permit if they were legal to have the weapon? He said they knew most of the gang member and bad guys there, and I opined if he already knew he most likely did not need to ask about a permit, but just in case it was new guy they did not know, wouldn't his guys have to ask to see the permit? He was not happy with my question.
  6. Where I eat lunch most every day I am in town, (Jackson, Bar-b-Que+meat and three) there are State Police officers, Sheriff's Department, JPD and a lot of times the whole dang Marshal's group in there. Several open carriers on any given day, I always carry concealed but will take my jacket off and hang it on the chair. None of them have ever looked up from their plates.
  7. It is March 10th, if you have signed up on the Eventrbight page in the link we have a count. Gov. threw a kink in when he proffered his bill, still need to show up, meeting takes place in the Capital, no guns allowed. If you can access after the speakers you can carry concealed in Cordell Hull.
  8. Only 3 States that have Constitutional Carry allow resident only, Idaho, North Dakota and Wyoming, the others that have it allow folks from States that have Constitutional Carry allow them to carry without a permit. All states touching TN that have permitless less carry honor citizens of any state.
  9. Amendment 15802 as adopted Senate Jud 2020-03-03.pdf Senate Version from yesterday.
  10. I can and will post the language of the amendment that makes the bill tomorrow, but from a perusal of the amendment here is my our take on it. Most people say that they believe in the 2nd Amendment. Most believe that the 2nd Amendment protects a right that every citizen in the entire county has to have and carry guns for all purposes. Most people, at least people from Tennessee, believe God gave us this right. The bill as proposed does not recognize that its my right and your right to have and carry guns, not just handguns. Here are some of those facts. First, it only applies to Tennesseans. Does it say that specifically, no. But that is the trickery of referencing the enhanced permit statute. So, citizens of our border states and other states have no rights that Tennessee would recognize under this bill. Its not being treated as a right but an exception for some citizens to a criminal charge, if it’s a right it must apply to any citizen who can legally own, purchase or possess and handgun. This one does not. Second, by referencing the enhanced permit statute the proposed bill only applies to Tennessee citizens who are lawful citizens or permanent residents who are at least 21 year old or a small set of 18-20 year olds in the military. But under state and federal law, any 18 year old can buy a handgun from another citizen. The 21 year old limit is only a limit on who federal gun dealers can sell to. Existing Tennessee laws already recognize that anyone 18 and up can purchase, possess, own and use a handgun. Third, if it’s a right it should apply based on a person’s right to own guns. This bill does not. This bill fails to recognize the right by adopting the special conditions on the enhanced permit such a person cannot have 2 or more DUIs in the last 10 years as prohibitions on the right to carry a handgun. If you want to include all those prohibitions why not just make the enhanced permit free and get rid of the training requirement because all the other conditions are being used to infringe the right of lawful gun owner? Fourth, if it’s a right it should be a right everywhere. This bill says it only applies where the person has a right to be. What does that mean? If I don’t have a right to be in a mall because I am not wearing a shirt should I also be criminally prosecuted if I have a gun in my pocket? Fifth, it it’s a right it should be a right in publicly owned parks and buildings as well as the streets and all parking lots. This law does not allow citizens who are exercising a right to even go in a park or walk on a greenway. Sixth, if it’s a right you should be able to drive to work and leave my lawfully owned handgun in my personal car. You can if you have a permit because that is already the law but if you just want to exercise your right to carry a firearm you cannot do that under this bill which means you could be fired for leaving your gun in personal car just because YOU parked at work. (Company handbook clause) Seventh, if you want to pass constitutional carry, then treat it as a right that the people have with or without the constitution. That is not what this law does. This law leaves the criminal penalties for illegally carrying a gun on the books. The bill uses these existing criminal laws as a threat to charge people who are only trying to exercise a right and then creates a defense to the criminal charge if the citizen happens to meet all of the conditions, conditions which are really nothing more than infringements. So, if you really want to pass constitutional carry all you need to do is say that a person who can legally purchase or possess a firearm has the right to carry it in Tennessee and to do so in public places (not private), on public property (not private property) and even while parking their vehicles in places where they are allowed to park. Constitutional carry needs nothing more than the removal of infringements. On the other hand if all you want to do is to create a defense to a criminal charge with a lot of conditions and qualifications this accomplishes that.
  11. It is a "Cation Bill", they have not posed the Amendment that makes the bill yet, and I can not copy and past the link from Leader Lamberth.
