Legislation – First Extraordinary Session of the 113th General Assembly

I am reading and trying to translate from “Legalise” to English. At first look, it will be a good thing to get in the Mental Health business in the future as there are plenty of bills focusing on that. The best bills for our side (so far) are the ones allowing persons with an enhanced handgun carry permit to carry a handgun on school property. There are two or three flavors of this, from unrestricted to only is schools that provide no security. So far, one of the ones I like is SB 7020 which also addresses the stupid TN law that makes any location into a Gun-Free-Zone if a school trip suddenly visits. Other bills I have seen order schools to develop programs to respond to Active Shooters and to have some sort of armed security in the form RSOs or actual PD on duty.

Then we have crap like SB 7029 which is full-fledged Red Flag bill. Just to give you a taste, here is an extract: “A petition for a temporary mental health order of protection does not
require either party to be represented by an attorney” and “Notwithstanding any other law, attorney fees must not be awarded in
any proceeding under this section.” Basically, fuck your Miranda Rights. It goes downhill from there basically guaranteeing if you are targeted, you have no recourse and will be Red Flagged. And, of course, no penalties if the accusers and those involve in the process lie or do not do due diligence to avoid the violation of your rights.

The other thing I have noticed is that several bills are tagged with “hate crime” in what it looks to be the need to inject racial bias, Gender-Affirming care and Pro-Life advocacy and not really legality. Murder is still the highest crime there is (other than strolling through the DC Capitol) and should be assessed the highest penalty regardless of motive.

Now SB 7043, you to give the Gun Control Clique credit for introducing a roundabout mandatory locking of firearms. You sign an affidavit when you buy a gun or get a carry permit saying that other than the gun you carry with you, all other guns must be locked away or inaccessible or immovable.  Seriously? If I am in bed asleep, the only way I can have an unlocked gun is carrying it on me? That is going to make for shitty sleeping. And legally opens a clusterfuck of problems: Is an affidavit legally binding? Probably not, but till that is decided in court, schmucks that sign it can find themselves in legal and monetary hell.

Ok, that is it for now. I’ll keep reading later. Down are some of the bills that piqued my attention, but not all of the so far.

  1. As I said previously … This many bills, none of them particularly urgent in terms of time sensitivity, should be explored as part of the regular session. This mess feels like a going-out-of-business sale, or maybe a land rush.

  2. I’m late to the party but agree with the above. Who has pictures of whom with who or who got their marching orders and a nice party donation.

Only one rule: Don't be a dick.
