TN Legislature Passes Resolution for Meredith Graves

Titled “A Resolution urging the State of New York to use common sense and sound judgement in the disposition of the case against Meredith Graves.” This would have about as much impact as New York asking 1950s Tennessee to go easy on the poor black fellow who happened to not understand that sitting at the wrong lunch counter was a problem. As it is, if they go easy on Meredith Graves, it’ll be because they fear spurring the passage of pending civil rights legislation and the filing of civil rights lawsuits. They certainly won’t be doing it out of a sense of justice, or because they’ve finally seen the light about the Second Amendment. The only way jurisdictions like New York join the rest of America when it comes to respecting all of the Bill of Rights is if it’s forced on them.

  1. Oooh, a little stick to go with the carrot:

    BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that we remind the citizens of New York, especially those residing in New York City, to drive carefully through the great State of Tennessee, paying extra attention to our speed limits.

    At least Tennessee saw the light. I’ll eat my hat the day I can wear a pistol in the front of a bus in NYC.

      It didn’t honestly take much coercion. For the most part, the South changed itself, with respect to Jim Crow. New York I expect to fight imposition of the Second Amendment considerably more than the South fought the end of Jim Crow.

    That closing statement isn’t accurate. Our Tammany system of government operates more on the “what have you done for me?” principal as opposed to a strictly ideological antigun sentiment.

    This makes me even gladder that I bought land in TN for my retirement!

  5. Pat says:

    Bwahahahaha….this is PERFECT! If she gets charged at this point, she’s the next test case.

    I am in Miami, but I can see the smiles of TN State Troopers. Unless they changed a lot since my last visit, they are fine cool folks till you rile ‘em up.
