Second Amendment Advocates Unhappy with ‘Spineless’ Republicans

Gun enthusiasts are angry and threatening political reprisals against Republican state lawmakers for failing to expand Second Amendment rights in the first year of the party’s large majority in the legislature, reports Jeff Woods.
After helping the GOP gain power in last year’s elections, activists are complaining that they’ve gotten the cold shoulder in Nashville this year, dashing their dreams of an unchallenged dominion in the legislature.
John Harris, director of the influential Tennessee Firearms Association, painted Republicans as ingrates and accused them of treating gun proponents as “the unwanted stepchildren” of Tennessee politics.
He denounced some Republicans as “spineless.” Likening the legislature to a garden badly in need of weeding, he suggested supporters should recruit challengers for these lawmakers in the 2012 elections.
