His gun-carry permit was current and the gun was legal, but he pissed off the law.
First, Nashville reporterette Heather Jensen penned this gem.
... he carried an AK-47-type pistol into Radnor Lake State Park.
It's hard to trust her to get the rest of it right, but let's
stipulate that Leonard Embody did twice (legally) carry arms in the state
park. There was prolly a little poking a stick in the park
ranger's eye the second time, with predictable if not lawful results.
Embody filed a federal lawsuit against the Radnor Lake State Park
ranger. [NOTE: I wouldn't have done that. I'd have gone back to that park a third time] Friday, he received a certified letter from the Tennessee Department of Safety stating his gun carry permit was revoked.
"There was a material likelihood that I was a risk to the public," Embody said of the letter.
What a bunch of knob-munching canker blossoms. I suppose Embody might
be one of them who just piss people off by showing up, like Keith
Olbermann, or Barbara Boxer. Don't matter. He broke no law. He
says he "doesn't consider himself a gun rights activist but ...
strongly believes (Tennessee's) gun legislation is flawed, often
outdated, vague or contradictory." Is it?
"The only way you can carry the handgun is to carry it openly in your
hand," Embody said.
Whoa. So that's two prollems that need fixing. A
vindictive, heavy handed state agency, and that. Props to Leonard
