The moron got stopped for driving at 60 mph in a 40 mph zone and not for anything that happened with his gun, which was not even on his person but in the car he was driving. Crucify him for endangering lives with a car but not with a firearm.

Remember the rhetoric while trying to pass the guns in restaurants legislation? Dodge City lawlessness, nightly shootouts across the state, the OK Corral, dogs and cats living together, women and children being shot dead in the streets.
To add insult to injury, this isn't just an HCP holder, nor is it just a TN lawmaker with an HCP. This is the TN lawmaker with an HCP that pushed for what they call the "guns in bars law". They'll use this to beat us like a red-headed step-child and I don't know of anything we could say that would matter. Logic doesn't work with that group, they deny its existence. Whatever happens to Curry Todd because of this, our cause has been seriously diminished by his actions.

Not unpredictable...nor surprising, considering the total inaction of this group up to now. Seems Todd's indiscetion may have just been a timely, convenient way to put a nail in the coffin anyway. Funny, but TMK no one knew there was a meeting scheduled for this week until there was a reason to cancel it...
As to Todd: seems I did see in a local report that he was charged with violation of implied consent as well.

I care not what his situation was regarding his personal life, divorce timing etc., if he violated the law with regard to consumption of alcohol, driving and possession of a weapon. Should those allegations be proven, then he needs to bear the results just as anyone else would.
We as gun owners and HCP holders will suffer from his actions, that is a given, but, IF he is held accountable, it simply proves the Laws as written, are there to protect us all from those who drink, drive and fail to honor the regulations related to gun possession, and are working as intended.
