    NASHVILLE — In a surprise move, a House panel voted today to repeal a state law that forbids the carrying of handguns on property and buildings owned by state, county and city governments — including parks and playgrounds.

    "I think the recent Virginia disaster — or catastrophe or nightmare or whatever you want to call it — has woken up a lot of people to the need for having guns available to law-abiding citizens," said Rep. Frank Niceley, R-Strawberry Plains. "I hope that is what this vote reflects."

    Man hope this passes. Does that mean it'll include state parks etc? I'm not looking forward to having to disarm everytime I drive through the smoky mountain park...what a pain.

    I really wanna see resteraunts allowed more than anything :o
