Why can't Tennesseans do some of this? True, we have a pretty good deal and it has probably made us complacent, but I would like to see us a bit more confrontational. I'm not suggesting some wild-eyed extravaganze but just a simple group exercise -- kind of showing the flag. Actually I'm not all that big on open carry per se, but it is an important part of the equation.
I guess part of what I'm driving at is that we need an organizational identity that will do more than frown thoughtfully. And don't point me to TFA. They give a whole new definition to "bland".
There are none of these groups in Tennessee because as you say we do have pretty good laws for the most part.I see nopoint to a get together where you gather and carry concealed. I was told to carry concealed in my carry class and it seems most in Tennessee are taught in their class that it is better to carry concealed. People accept this as the gospel.
As far as TFA, I'm not even sure they know the laws. I was a member a long time ago. I rejoined in October, but if you go to their website you'll quickly find out they walk around scared and carry with their handguns concealed.
