Well it figures that Tn. Would be the first to test this tyrannical legislation just like this state was the first to have TSA out on the streets.
his is getting F*ing ridiculous and I don't give a sh*t if they don't like what i'm Fu*king saying or will say to there face or online given the opportunity!
