"The number of Tennesseeans licensed by the state to go armed increased by nearly 51,000 people last year to 268,711."
This is the anti-Second Amendment crowd's biggest nightmare. I'm sure we'll hear cries that guns are evil and should only be possessed by the government. Yet despite the constant attacks on our right to defend our lives as we see fit, people seem to be arming themselves and thus taking on some responsibility for their own lives (imagine that!)
Now just think how many more people own guns that don't feel they need to "rent their rights" from the government!!
