TN Rep Curry Todd

TN Rep. Curry Todd (R-Collierville)

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.

Roy Herron is a state senator from the great state of Tennessee. He is currently running for governor.Listen to the way he talks about why he’s a Democrat. PROUDLY. Not all wishy washy, like so many other leaders. The Republican party lead by Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck were soundly repudiated in the last election. Yet the current Democratic leaders in Congress keep rolling over for the Republicans, and seem to want to run away from being a Democrat.

In looking back over the past 80 years or so in this country, the economy, jobs, social services all get better under Democratic Administrations, and all the social programs we rely on today are Democratic programs.

Class act, great guy, and hopefully the next governor of Tennessee.
