I have never met Tennessee State Representative Curry Todd. From his web site, however, there is no doubt in my mind that he is the salt of the earth. He is an asset to mankind. A pillar of the community. Some of his community involvement includes (from his web site):
Shelby County Conservative Republican Club, East Shelby County Republican Club,University of Memphis, Society Inc. Board of Directors, Collierville Republican Club, etc.
All in all, his website lists 18 organizations that he lists as being a member. Indeed, an upstanding member of the community.
In 2009 Representative Todd was the sponsor of the guns-in-bars legislation passed in Tennessee in 2009.
According to Rep. Todd, in 2009:
drinking with your gun is something that no responsible handgun owner would ever do. In fact, it is prohibited under the Tennessee guns-in-bars law. The law “was only to let law-abiding (sober) citizens carry their licensed weapons into family restaurants to protect all the patrons against any would-be robbers or other armed assailants.” He accused the news media of sensationalism for reporting that his guns-in-bars law would allow “guns in bars(!)”
In October 2011 Representative Todd added a 19th group that he is a member of: JAILBIRD.
In early October Mr. Todd was jailed and charged with drunken driving and possession of a .38 calibre pistol, loaded with 5 rounds. Good going Mr. Todd. You are a real example for the NRA and the people of Tennessee.
