Quote of the Week: "This is not 1875."

"This is not 1875. It just seems to me this is going to escalate all the crime to a higher level."

—Claiborne County Sheriff David Ray, commenting in a WBIR story on a bill approved (25-2) by the Tennessee Senate last week that would allow gun owners carry their weapons openly without a permit. The bill would also end the requirement that gun owners go through a background check or get training before carrying a handgun in public.
