    Exclamation Tennessee: Guns haven't changed state parks

    In the 15 months since Tennessee handgun carry permit holders got the right to go armed in state parks, two gun related incidents have been reported at state facilities and neither resulted in violence, officials said. "I am pleasantly surprised," said Tennessee Environment and Conservation Commissioner Jim Fyke, who in 2009 lobbied against the so called "guns in parks" bill. "I believed that it was not a good idea."

    I read this in the paper this weekend. As some may recall here at ASD, we discussed the guy that immediately went to the park with an AK pistol slung over his shoulder. This is "one" of the issues the left pounced upon to say "see we told you". Although legal, that was a dumb thing to do... We may never know why the guy had an Orange tip on the barrel either, making it look like a toy. Just plain stupid IMHO. We shouldn't be surprised that the state parks aren't full of dead bodies like the nay-sayers said they would. It just chaps me that there are knuckle heads that think they are exercising their rights and all they are really doing is playing into the fear and hype of the left...
