  • I’m guessing that the smoking argument may have been the catalyst, but that there’s more to this than just that.

  • ruben greenberg says:

    It is all right to carry a gun in the United States, as long as it isn’t a smoking gun.

    • I wish someone would explain to me why anyone under the age of 50 — especially singers, brass players, and woodwinds — would start smoking.

      The evidence (that it’s harmful) is clear, and it’s been out there for a long time.

  • V.Lind says:

    Tennessee? Of course it was self-defence (or, as it will be on the plea, “self-defense”). It seems to be an almost fail-safe defence (defense) in the gun states.
