I’d like to be all Rachel Maddow and demand that someone talk me down, but I’m not sure that what I want to hear can be said by the Tennessee Democrats at this point. I want to hear that they really get it–that they really get that we, as a state, are in dire circumstances and that we need real, new ideas. I want to hear that they get that there are good Tennesseans who are repeately being screwed over by this idea that, in order to count as a real Tennessean, you have to have a penis, a gun, and a wife. Shoot, I’m about ready to start a campaign to buy guns for every kid sitting in a shitty school in this state, guns for every person who doesn’t have healthcare, guns for every person who loses their job. Maybe then the legislators will take their problems seriously.
And, if that doesn’t work, we’re going to have to see if we can’t get some kind of bulk discount on realistic dildos from the Hustler store.
Where was I?
Yeah, anyway, what Steve says.
Edited to add: Okay, now I’m tickled. “Democrats want gun owners to submit to drug and alcohol testing during a state-defined nine month period.” “Republicans want to refuse unmarried gun owners the right to adopt.” “The Legislator refuses to quickly fund schooling for gun owners.” “Party leaders say that gun owners without health insurance are just shit out of luck.”
For the good of our state, we need to work with cities and communities from across this land and, when they do their gun buybacks, we must volunteer to take those guns and distribute them to the people in our communities.
