    In her first interview since being crowned Miss Tennessee, Ellen Carrington explains why she packs:

    New Miss Tennessee is straight-shooting volunteer

    Newly crowned Miss Tennessee packs heat

    Final try pays off big for new Miss Tennessee

    [SNIP]
    Ellen Carrington, 21, who was crowned Miss Tennessee on Saturday night, has a concealed weapons permit.

    "I have a Smith & Wesson .40-caliber," Carrington told reporters on Sunday, "(with a) silver top and black body."

    A Jackson native and senior at Union University, Carrington decided to get the permit because she was spending a lot of time traveling to and from Nashville at night. She said spending time at shooting ranges with her father, Pat, helped create an even deeper bond between the two.

    I wonder if she would be willing to speak on behalf of all Americans who carry for protection?

    At the WBIR web site, Carrington is already getting bet up by comments posting sarcastic messages.

    She's being defended, too. Some examples:

    Tennessee's premit system does NOT require a firearm to be concealed. Last year, a KPD officer found this out when he stopped someone who had forgotten to cover his at a Wal-Mart. It resulted in a personal apology being issued by the KPD, and retraining of the police officers.

    That being said, it's much smarter to conceal it, people don't get upset over what they don't see.

    Good for Ellen, because she refuses to be a victim.

    God loves sinners and hates their sin. Doesn't mean he won't judge them or send wrath.

    And thats where most of the "sane" comments end. So far, four pages of Theological name calling and party bashing...

    Depends on whether they're seeing the swimsuit competition.
    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.
