    Tennessee Carry Bill Vetoed - Over ride

    (AP) Tennessee Gov. Phil Bredesen for the second year in a row has vetoed a bill to allow Tennessee handgun permit holders to bring their weapons into bars and restaurants that serve alcohol.
    The Democratic governor said in a letter to Republican Senate Speaker Ron Ramsey of Blountville that he based his decision on the principle that "guns and alcohol don't mix."
    Bredesen vetoed a similar measure last year, flanked by law enforcement officers and prosecutors who opposed the bill, but he was easily overridden by the Legislature. It only takes a simple majority in both chambers to turn back a veto.
    The law was later declared unconstitutionally vague, so lawmakers this year passed a new version.

    Are there enough votes to overturn this veto?

    He's right, guns and alcohol definitely do not mix.

    Our permits say right on the front : Invalid when using or consuming alcohol or illegal drugs . I think that would cover it as we can carry in Bars but you better not be drinking !!

    He's a dick head and it will probably be overturned.

    The Nashville Chief of police just took a job in N.O,. Good place for him because he vary seldom followed the law unsolved murders went up and gangs run rampant. Good riddance chief Serpa!

    Legislature overroad his veto last year, but courts determined the law was too vague to be constitutional. This years legislation tightened the language, and he stands a good chance to being overridden again.

    HCP holder may not drink and carry, and establishments have the option to bar guns by posting at the entrance.

    Irony is bars are already full of guns carried by unliscensed people who are drinking.

    Not only Nashville I spent two weeks in Knoxville waiting for our Apt to be ready to move into, and after sundown you would not believe the gangbangers walking the streets, I felt like we were back in FL, I did"nt even know there were gangs in TN until then.

    They are everywhere. Mostly Mexican and Central American based (MS-13, etc.) You can occasionally see gang graffitti on signs in the National Forest and Smokies.

    TWRA (Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency) should have them declared "Varmints", and establish a no-bag-limit, year-long season. Give them hill boys something to hunt, between turkey and deer season.
    Desperately clinging to guns and religion....mostly guns.

    I hope this veto in TN does not influence a similar bill in Ohio.
