Carr would be better served working on bills that help Tennessee rather than push back against legislation that includes 23 measures that he can't do anything about. Once again, our state officials are too concerned with image than with working on any form of legislation that improves our economy or society.
As much of America holds a death grip on their guns, we should be asking why we are so dependent on the idea of protecting ourselves and from what? We live in a post-9/11 society in which fear is bred 24 hours a day through television and media. Other countries with similar social structures such as the UK don’t have this problem and don’t have guns in the hands of every man, woman and child.

No. Carr pushes back against 20 slaughtered first graders, 6 heroic educators, their families and rational Americans.
Rational Americans don't fight the sale of guns to people who are prone to going on killing sprees.
Carr says, “The federal government,” he said, “should not be allowed, through law or executive order, to infringe upon our constitutional rights.”
So, gruntessa, I guess it was that shooter's constitutional right to carry a gun and slaughter those children and teachers!!??
Carr demonstrates he is out of step with the majority of Americans on this issue. What's worse his lack of common sense about this is frightening. His stance on this is just self-serving and should be a warning to anyone who is considering who should replace our DeJarlais. Why replace one Neanderthal with another?
Carr should check with the AG on this one. This is not a "States Rights" issue and (he) is is coming off as being more political than logical.
