The TNGOP has just passed a law that creates a new type of "concealed only"* handgun carry permit that drastically reduces the requirements for obtaining a permit.

The new permit requires only 90 minutes of instruction which can be done online. There's no requirement for firing range time or demonstrating safe handling or any other hands-on proficiency. What could possibly go wrong?

(*Existing permits allow for open or concealed carry and require eight hours of classroom training and range time.)

So the GOP wants everyone

So the GOP wants everyone armed so we can all kill each other and leave the 1% with everything.

But who would do their laundry and cook their food and fix their plumbing and mow their lawns?

I don't think they've thought this all the way through.
