The sponsor of the law that made it legal to carry a gun into bars in Tennessee is facing charges of possession of a handgun while under the influence and drunken driving ... A loaded .38-caliber gun was found in a holster stuffed between the driver's seat and center console.
A police affidavit said Todd was unsteady on his feet, "almost falling down at times." Officers concluded that Todd was "obviously very impaired and not in any condition to be carrying a loaded handgun."
The police helpfully released the photograph of the state legislator at the time of the arrest.
This makes perfect sense of course. Who, other than a drunk, would want to make laws permitting the carrying of guns in bars? What this says about the rest of the Tennessee legislature, who even overrode their governor's veto on this measure, I don't know.
