Smarter Than the Average Bear

6 03 2009

While 4.67 percent of Tennessee’s adult population has a state conceal-carry permit (though contradictorily, you have to be 21 to get a CCW permit but this percentage is of the entire population 18 and older), 25.75% of Tennessee’s state legislators have permits.

Politicians tend to be a lot of things, but one of the things in their favor is that they tend to me smarter than average.  They see what’s going on.

Though I’d like to know, of those state legislators that have permits, how many of those are the black/lib types who vote for more civil rights and diversity, and no racial profiling on the part of cops, provoking the crime problem that drives people to get CCW permits.  And how many of them opposed CCW in Tennessee when it first came up, though the state adopted CCW long ago enough that only a few members that were in the legislature when the bill was passed are still there today.
