    The survey is currently leaning heavily "yes" on allowing guns in parks, 87% to 13%, but there have only been 79 votes cast.

    From the description of the bill, it's nothing to get excited about. It doesn't legalize licensed concealed carry in parks, it merely lets local governments allow it. And worse, it lets them set up a hodgepodge quiltwork of which parks, and which areas of parks, are legal.

    The bill sponsored by Rep. Harry Tindell, a Knoxville Democrat, would also allow local governments to decide to be selective about where to allow guns. For example, officials could decided to allow handguns on greenways, but not at ballfields.

    "All local governments will have the option to opt-in to this law by a majority vote of their legislative body," Tindell told the House Judiciary Committee, which advanced the measure on a voice vote.

    Tindell said his bill would also have state law mirror federal rules on whether handguns can be taken into national parks.


    State law should be silent on the matter of national parks.

    Why open carry? Because 1911 > 911.
