Tennessee Has An Official Gun, Can I Move Now?

You know I am a godless left leaning liberal type. I don’t quite go so far as to want to ban guns as do many liberals, I grew up hunting and fishing and own a few guns. I also learned the hard way growing up, when someone punches you in the schnoz you hit back twice as hard. I do wish we still lived in a time when bullies used their fists, instead of reaching for a weapon. I can concede we have a problem with guns in our society, and it is an issue. But I sure as fuck do not think a state should decide to adopt a gun as an official state symbol. State flowers? Fine. State bird, I’m good with that. State gun?

What in the goddamned hell are these RWCRFM’s (Right Wing Conservative Republican Fundamentalist Morons) thinking?! Tennessee is already a laughing stock of this fine country. This cements that standing for time evermore. I was disgusted when our Gov. Bill Haslam (R) allowed vouchers (state money) for religious schools. I was really pissed when that same Gov. decided to limit pain medications (like the kind I take for my back) to 4 per day. How in the heck can you legislate someone elses pain? And I am now appalled that our Senate has adopted the Barrett Sniper Rifle as our new state gun.

There is apparently no measurable depth to the low that Republicans will go. Let’s just call it a bottomless pit of disgust. Heck I think it was last year they tried to adopt the frigging bible as a state book! What is wrong with these people?

  1. Republicans: I fuckin’ hate the bastards.

    • I can’t decide whether to hate them just for being Republicans, or hate them for the stupid shit they do. Surely there is a Republican out there somewhere that isn’t a science denying, reality denying, bible thumping, oil company loving, lying shitbag. But I haven’t seen one yet.

  2. Seriously, a gun as the emblem?

  3. Watch out! The government may take you down with one of those Barrett Sniper Rifles for your unbecoming rant about their beloved state symbol.

    • In all seriousness I do live in an infested wasteland of redneck, hillbilly, fundamentalist R types. These people I am sure are all applauding our new state symbol. Probably taking their damn guns to church…
