  1. I’m not picking on you specifically, but using the term “gun violence” is using the language of the opposition. There is no such thing as “gun violence.” Some violence is committed with guns, some with other weapons, and some with the human body. The term was invented by people who want to suppress our rights, and I think we should refuse to accept it or use it.
  2. Is this bill as great as it should have been? No. Are we better with this bill than without it? Yes. I am still surprised this governor was willing to push this bill at all. Tennessee governors tend to be moderates, regardless of party, and a change of this magnitude is not usually something they will promote. They might acquiesce to it, but usually will not promote it. My read on this situation is that the governor told the leadership “this far and no farther” on this one. He seems to be willing to appear more conservative than the usual Tennessee governor, but he is not going to p
  3. 10mm is a fun cartridge, and IMO the Glocks are currently the best handgun platforms for it. I think the choice among the 20, 29, and 40 mostly depends on how you intend to use them. The 40 will get the most stock performance out of the cartridge, but it is probably an open carry only option. The 20 and 29 can be concealed without much difficulty, so I think the 20 is probably the best overall option. There are several aftermarket barrel options for all of them, so there are options to expand their usefulness. I can’t provide any advice on using red dots with them, but they sure are fun to
  4. It’s a shame that this bill is the “best” the supermajority can deliver. While this bill is a disappointment, I am disgusted that my supposedly “100% pro-second amendment” state senator voted against the bill in its entirety. Having seen his votes in other matters, I am not entirely surprised. He is not what he claims to be, but I suppose most politicians are the same.
  5. The bill has passed in the Senate, but the House still has not voted. From what I have read from TFA, this bill is an improvement on the current situation, but it could be so much better. If we have so many “pro-gun Republicans” in the general assembly, why are they so hesitant to pass a real constitutional carry bill? I have not yet reviewed the record, but apparently no amendments were allowed to the senate version of the bill. At this point, it would be helpful to call (rather than email) our state representatives to pressure them to make amendments to improve the bill. Once this b

    This story made me realize that I have always assumed the bullet from a squib would be far enough down the barrel that it would not interfere with feeding the next round. I have never experienced a squib, so I guess the warnings about squibs created the impression that they are always midway or farther in the barrel. It certainly makes sense that it could be lodged close enough to the chamber to prevent a complete feed. If it is going to happen, it seems better for it to cause a failure to feed such that a new round can’t be chambered and fired into the obstruction.
  7. I agree. I also see many tristar stickers upside-down on vehicles. I think most people just don’t know the correct way to display it.
  8. While it does not use the word “sanctuary” HB0446/SB0557 looks helpful: “Firearms and Ammunition - As introduced, adds a prohibition of the expenditure of state or local funds or employees to implement, regulate, or enforce any federal law or executive order regulating the sale of firearms, ammunition, or firearm accessories if the expenditure of funds or use of employees would violate a state law or the state constitution. - Amends TCA Title 38 and Title 39.”
  9. GMRS radios are another option that might be useful for the local area and a few surrounding counties. The license does not require a test. Also, while it is not a great option, I have been able to get decent distance from single sideband (ssb) CB radio. Based on the responses above, I have started looking into BBS. What boards are good for information?
  10. This new bill by Rep. Griffey looks good, but I don’t have much hope that it will pass as written. https://fox17.com/news/local/tennessee-lawmaker-pushes-for-true-constitutional-carry-law-firearms-nra-concealed-permit-crime-law-enforcement-guns-criminal-self-defense
  11. Not really, but permitless carry is a more accurate name for this bill. There are still too many remaining restrictions not addressed by this bill to consider it constitutional carry.
  12. Exactly right! There was a couple killed here in Knoxville a couple of months ago by a complete stranger who crashed his truck through the front wall of their house and shot both of them. https://www.knoxnews.com/story/news/crime/2020/03/27/west-knox-bizarre-double-homicide-ronnie-johnson-boyd-doris-beets/2917787001/
