    In the wake of the mall security shooting the mayor of memphis stated on the news that it should be a "heinous crime" to have a firearm in a mall. It doesn't say it in the article but he said on the news that he may lobby to make it so.

    Can't say I agree as this was not some law abiding citizen with a carry permit that did this but I don't think anyone here will.

    The guy is obviously a tard, when will these people realize that criminals who are hell bent on shooting up some place are not going to be deterred by a "no firearms zone".

    Seriously wtf are these idiots smoking?

    Tell me about it.

    It blows my mind that these people can't grasp such a simple concept.

    "If I had my way it would be heinous crime to bring a firearm into crowded malls unless properly licensed."
    ..............................

    I assume the perpetrator was not a ccw. Do you think hes against cc by law abiding citizens in the malls?

    HAHAHAHA...I actually carry 2 magazines and a back up gun with spare mag when I go to Memphis.

    The Mall? Ha, I would rather go to Haiti right now..

    The mayor is so full of stupid it hurts.

    Thanks for the reminder of how much I hate Memphis! Got to drive my grandparents tomorrow to the airport in Memphis!

    I believe so based on the interview I saw but the article differs slightly. His aides probably told him that such speak would not go over well.

    Hey! Guys, go back and read the article again, CAREFULLY. G-Lock808 seems to be the only one to have caught the phrase uttered by the mayor, "unless properly licensed"! It looks like the mayor does NOT want to make the mall into a totally gun free zone. "Unless properly licensed" looks to me like licensees will still be able to carry there. It looks like he wants to make it a heinous crime to be carrying UN-licensed, as in already illegally carrying. :supergrin:

    Yup misdemeanor in TN but maybe he wants it to go felony. Gotta love that word "HEINOUS" though.

    Do we really need to pay legislators to spend time to make things that are against the law, against more laws? Why not just enforce the laws we already have?

    Thass, OK. It was easy to miss that one.

    That sort of thing happens to the best of us. I thought I'd made a mistake last week, but I was wrong! :supergrin:
