Gun bill signed by Haslam

Haslam signs bill requiring additional security where governments ban guns says the headline in the Knoxville News Sentinel.

There are some good features in the bill*, but it also expands some gun-ban zones. You might think that it fixes some of the problems with the Guns in Parks bill. But. . .it still does not address this issue:

If you are going to an event such as a fair in a high-crime area of a city, and that event is posted, you still must disarm yourself to walk from your car to the "secure" venue. 

Another gun-ban zone, the VA in Knoville
Meanwhile big-city mayors, governors, and others of our betters still get armed security on your dime.

*This appears to be the final version that became law, but don't bet the farm on it.
