Only Water Pistols at Numan's

The "bring your gun to the bar" law goes into effect today in Tennessee. Yeah, bright idea. I enjoyed reading this article in today's Johnson City Press about Numan's Bar and Cafe. The owner, Dan Numan, is giving away guns today. Water pistols. It is in protest to this law. According to Numan:
"The voters aren't in favor of it, the customers don't want it, the bar owners don't want it, the police departments don't want it," he said. "There isn't anybody that wants it, but they're (the legislators) are obviously not listening to the voters or the constituents. They're obviously listening to where they're getting money from, which has to be the gun lobby."
