KNOXVILLE’S MAYOR, BILL HASLAM, AN ANTI-GUNNER?

Seems Knoxville Mayor Bill Haslam is a member of Michael Bloomberg’s Alliance of Mayors Against Guns. I have intentionally left off the word illegal because Bloomberg’s antics have not targeted illegal gun dealers but legal and lawful dealers. . . . Now, the mayor of Knoxville has allied himself with that. What was he thinking?

One issue is that what is illegal in New York is, for the most part, not illegal elsewhere. What Bloomberg is targeting is not illegal here. So, Mr. Haslam, what’s the deal?

This seems quite odd to me. Haslam is thought to have ambitions toward statewide office, and this sort of thing isn’t likely to fly, well, anywhere in Tennessee.
