Not too long ago the Teabagger crazy in the Tennessee Legislature decided it would be a good idea to roll back restrictions on where a person shouldn’t carry guns. So Rep. Curry Todd decided it would be a good idea to introduce a law allowing handgun carry permit holders to bring guns into bars. Because, you know, guns and drunks are always a successful combination…if your wish is to clean up the gene pool.
Unfortunately, Rep. Todd forgot about another law in Tennessee making it illegal to be in possession of a fireman when intoxicated. It also appears he forgot about the law against driving drunk because he was caught doing both. According to the Associated Press:
Police say in court documents that the Collierville Republican was pulled over in Nashville late Tuesday. He allegedly failed a roadside sobriety test and refused to take a breathalyzer. A loaded Smith & Wesson 38 Special was found in a holster stuffed between the driver seat and the center console.
I’m betting Rep. Todd’s next bill will be a repeal of the laws making it illegal to be drunk and packing, and who knows, he might just try to repeal the drunk diving law, then he won’t have to worry about it.
As is usual from the Republican Teabaggers, there’s been no comment.
UPDATE: Well, here’s the mugshot. Definitely someone I want armed.
