East Tennessee > Knoxville Mayor Bill Haslam is Anti-gun

SayUncle has been way out in front covering Bill Knoxville Mayor Bill Haslam's involvement with Mayors Against Illegal Guns. He has links to USA Today and NY Times coverage.

The ultimate goal of the group seems to be to end most private ownership of firearms. If that sounds like an exaggeration, consider that the group is in favor of the California microstamping law. That bill would have outlawed the sale of all semi-automatic hanguns unless they imprinted their make, model, and serial number on spent cartridges. No such gun exists, so the sale of all current semi-automatic handguns would have been outlawed in California had it passed.

Here's hoping Knoxville voters will kick Haslam out of office the next time around.

Sorry, you're going to have to find a much more compelling reason to vote him out of office to make me notice...

And they're probably out there, I just don't get any resonance out of this one...
