Tennessee GOP state representative person with comical pirate name Curry Todd sponsored one of these “what could possibly go wrong?” gun rights laws so popular with the wingnuts these days that allows handgun owners to march around inside their favorite local liquor establishments while carrying weapons.

Police say in court documents that the Collierville Republican was pulled over in Nashville late Tuesday. He allegedly failed a roadside sobriety test and refused to take a breathalyzer. A loaded Smith & Wesson 38 Special was found in a holster stuffed between the driver seat and the center console.
