    According to the MEDIA the "parking" shooting was unjustified, but the stories percolating from that incident make me wonder. We will see eventually.

    Very true. So far the onformation is still coming out on these incidents. In the first, there is apparently a question as to whether the victim struck the permit-holder's wife and threatened them. In the second, there appear to be no witnesses so far.

    So, at this point we cannot say justified or not, exactly. Public opinion though is being molded over the issues of traffic and parking spots being the flash point of the incidents. Many people will jump on this as reasons to fight the bill allowing carry at local parks and athletic fields. Addiitonally, the bill concerning disclosing the names of individual permit-holders is vividly seen in these two articles. Under trhe new law, the paper would have been fined $2,500 each incident.

    The Commercial Appeal has an article on this in the paper this morning (Thursday, 26th).

    My posting of this on this thread has nothing to do with justified/unjustified, only the impact of public opinion on the pending legislation. It is also posted over in the 2A area.
    Reality, DEAL with IT!

    Not at all....the needs of the many still trump the idiocy of the few. Neither event occurred as a result of alcohol, nor were they near any public park.

    I will neither confirm, nor deny.

  6. Didn't this happen in Memphis? What happens in Memphis REALLY needs to stay in Memphis. I would hope the relatively high crime rate there won't dictate laws for the entire state.

    Yes, both instances, within a week of each other, happened in Memphis.

    The parking lot incident was in Cordova, an area not exactly known for violent crime. The second, an accident, was in the 'hood.

    Just poor timing with regard to PR for the legislation. Germantown is hyping it up a bit (see below link) and I suspect the Cordova shooting is on their minds.

  10. I to live near Memphis and am dismayed by the way that the Commercial Appeal reports on things in such a biased way. A local radio station was going to broadcast public info on employees of the paper since the published info on permit holders and the layers filed a seese and desist order. It is ok for them but not for others to do the same. I love the way the newspaper picks and chooses the amendments to follow and how they want to follow them. You go to love a city the keeps re-electing a mayor that has been tied up in corruption and is under investigation now by the feds.

  11. Looks like the new laws are going to become law. The Restaurant law is headed for final vote and would become law June first. The public park law is also getting closer and they amended the martial aw rule so that they cannot seize you weapons and ammo if it is legally acquired during times of Martial Rule.
