Well, it is well-known that effective yesterday, Tennesseans can bring guns into restaurants that serve alcohol, if the restaurant doesn't choose to prevent it. There is still a lawsuit pending to strike down the new law, but it will not do so in time to prevent it from going into effect. The Memphis Commercial Appeal has a good discussion of the status of this law (and one allowing guns in parks).
Three cheers for Dan Numan, however, who has brought some real levity to the situation.
