Letter: AP story on proposed bill example of liberal media

Editor:

After reading “News That Affects You” in the Feb. 28, 2013, edition of The Mountain Press, I now understand how Barack Obama got re-elected. The story, written by Erik Schelzig of AP, is just another example of misguiding journalism quite common to the liberal press, the same folks who give us their rendition of national news, not necessarily factual.

The story speaks of legislation in the Tennessee bill mill that would allow licensed persons to keep their self-defense firearms locked and stored in their personal vehicle, parked in their employers parking lot, while at work. The legislation has absolutely nothing to do with parking lots such as the one mentioned in the story; it is already legal to keep your gun stored in your vehicle unless the property owner has a sign on the property prohibiting it.
