It is the foundation of morality. It is the difference between theft and charity... Between rape and love making... Between assault and sparring... Between stealing and sharing... Between deception and make-believe... Between stalking and a relationship... Between slavery and service... Between force and cooperation.

It is CONSENT. And it matters.

Consent is the dividing line between morally acceptable human interaction and morally unacceptable human interaction. There is no person or group of persons exempt from this standard. We all know this to be true.

Isn't it time we started living like it? If you want to call yourself a moral person, you must not knowingly tolerate or advocate for the violation of another's consent. And you must certainly neither plead for it nor commission it.

And yet most of us not only tolerate it or support it, most of us ask for and even willingly pay to accomplish it.

That is called moral depravity.

Which side of the line do you live on?

In the Flip Flop Government News category, Tennessee completely gutted SB1736 by amending it, completely "deleting all language" that mattered in the first place now making it worth less than the time they spent on it.

I am ashamed I might have for one moment celebrated some spark of government thought. I am embarrassed beyond all measure I missed this while originally posting it, and I apologize sincerely. Nothing changed in TN.

But nothing changes for you either. #drypractice  today.

Senate Judiciary Committee 1
Amendment No. 1 to SB1736
Kelsey Signature of Sponsor
AMEND Senate Bill No. 1736* House Bill No. 2033
by deleting all language after the enacting clause and substituting instead the following: SECTION 1. Tennessee Code Annotated, Title 39, Chapter 17, Part 13, is amended by adding the following as a new section: (a) A person, business, or other entity that owns, controls, or manages property and has the authority to prohibit weapons on that property by posting, pursuant to § 39- 17-1359, shall be immune from civil liability with respect to any claim based on such person's, business's, or other entity's failure to adopt a policy that prohibits weapons on the property by posting pursuant to § 39-17-1359.
(b) Immunity under this subsection (a) does not apply to a person, business, or other entity whose conduct or failure to act is the result of gross negligence or willful or wanton misconduct.
SECTION 2. This act shall take effect July 1, 2016, the public welfare requiring it.
In the Good News category; Tennessee SB 1736 goes into effect tomorrow.

It essentially states that if you are a permit holder in a place you had a right to be, but that place chose to not allow you to carry your firearm concealed as indicated by proper signage, that property owner is liable for your safety against violence perpetrated by man or by beast. I think my favorite thing about this is that if you post the gun-buster sign, you now must include language as a part of that sign that states the property owner is "assumes absolute custodial responsibility for the safety and defense of the permit holder."
