Tennessee Gunowners Forum: "Curry Todd is Da Man!"

Da Man's Mugshot
Laci got the story first. (Via Southern Beale)

Seems the Tennessee state representative who spearheaded efforts to ensure drunks with guns could have better access to liquor had a wee problem the other night:

A police affidavit says Todd was unsteady on his feet, "almost falling down at times," his speech was slurred and he had watery and bloodshot eyes. Todd was "obviously very impaired and not in any condition to be carrying a loaded handgun," police say.
Of course, we'd be remiss if we didn't note that Linoge (Jon C. Sullivan)  and SayUncle and the Tennessee Gun Owner Forum worshipped this dude when he demanded gunloons be permitted to carry their penis substitutes firearms into bars.  After all, if we outlaw drunks with guns, only drunken criminals will have guns--amirite?  All the gunloon blogs are pretty quiet on this story

"During debate over the bill in 2009, Todd assured lawmakers that gun permit holders would be careful about not violating the ban on drinking in bars or restaurants while carrying a gun."Umm hmm.  And size doesn't matter, eh, gunloons?

We should also not forget Curry caused a bit of stir last year when he proclaimed that immigrants "breed like rats."  Of course, Robert Farago will take umbrage at the notion any gunloon might be a bit racist.

Tennessee.  What a joke.


  1. Oh, man. It's just too classic! If the guy who's pushed the bill can't keep out of trouble, then what about the average gunloon/drinker?

  2. This guy looks about as seriously drunk as someone can be and still remain more or less vertical.

    So, perhaps what is needed is really just a tweak of the gun law.

    Maybe we need bar tenders and waitress to card for concealed carry permits as well as underage drinking, and use that to refuse to sell a customer alcohol.

    I'd be ok with guns in bars, IF - big IF - those who seek concealed carry licenses never ever drink in bars, or anywhere else.

    Yeah, like THAT is going to happen.Because clearly some gun owners abuse alcohol while carring guns - like this guy, and any number of individuals who receive the Darwin awards.

  3. Effin' A!

    I really thing these lax CCW laws should be seriously reevaluated.

    As I said in response to my post, at least he didn't hurt or kill someone.

    My opinion, having known enough people who have been victims of drunk drivers is that these people should be barred from owning guns, let alone carrying a concealed weapon.

  4. I did think this jerk was at least as dangerous behind the wheel as he was with the gun.

  5. I thought you guys would have been all over the Ohio CHL holder that was arrested for being drunk in a bar with a gun last night.

  6. It's TN, he will retain his permit and get re-elected in a landslide.

  7. FWM sez:
    all over the Ohio CHL holder that was arrested for being drunk in a bar with a gun last night.

    Only if he makes the newsfeed at

  8. FWM, did I miss something? Can you send a link? I love stories like that.

  9. I couldn't cut'n'paste from this:

    because of password issues, but it's an interesting read on TX CCW permitting.

    Maybe Laci already has it.
