YOUR TURN: Guns in Bars

WMC-TV 5 V.P. & General Manager Lee Meredith WMC-TV 5 V.P. & General Manager Lee Meredith

This week's "Your Turn" segment goes to M. Tomlin. Tomlin is a handgun owner who is upset that Tennessee lawmakers passed a bill allowing people to take guns into restaurants that serve alcohol. The bill is currently on Governor Phil Bredesen's desk for signature.

Tomlin thinks that's a mistake. In her words:

"I am a female and I do not go to bars, but allowing handguns in bars is STUPID.  I have had a handgun carry permit for as long as they have been issued in Tennessee.  How can any club manager know that a person has a handgun and therefore they should not be served?   I could place mine in my purse and sit there and drink all night.  Now if something happens, the club is going to be held liable. Our people in Nashville have opened a "large can of worms."

That's M. Tomlin's turn. Now it's your turn. To comment on this segment or anything else, email yourturn@wmctv.com <mailto:yourturn@wmctv.com> or call 800-465-1210.
