GOP Controlled Tennessee House Overwhelmingly Votes AGAINST Open Carry Bill
Currently, Republicans hold a nearly 2-1 advantage in the Tennessee General Assembly and yet the The House Finance Subcommittee voted 10-1 against a bill that would make open carry without a license legal in the Volunteer State.
The State Senate voted to overwhelmingly pass the bill by a vote of 25-2 last week, which made it seem like the bill had a real chance of passage.
According to local media reports, House members came up with a variety of excuses for killing the bill,
The House panel voted down the bill after first adopting an amendment that stripped out projected $100,000 cost estimate for changing the wording on carry permits that Van Huss and other supporters had labeled “bogus.”
The Republicans are just Democrat light… now we aren’t proclaiming that the Libertarians are the answer either… after-all the Libertarians are nothing more then a Pro-Pot Party rapped up in the wool of a States Rights Party. Furthermore the Libertarians also support illegal immigration by supporting proposed bills that would defund the Border Patrol. If you are a long time reader of the Rebel Yell then this will be a break from our past rhetoric. The Libertarian Party is not the answer… instead go to the Constitution Party until we can start our own Native Floridian Party.
If you value freedom then you need to stop voting Republican, and leave this Socialist-Lite Party behind.
