From this morning's Knoville News Sentinel in Tennessee:

TN moves to allow guns in public buildings

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."

This is only a "surprise move" to someone who's paid absolutely no attention to gun politics in this country in recent years. Expect more of this. Don't expect anything that goes the other way.
