I asked Steve Steffens of Left Wing Cracker to elaborate on the teabaggers who brought guns to Steve Cohen’s Memphis health care event:

Since this was in North Memphis, the damn fools may have thought there would be crowds of angry black 9th District residents.  Remember, we have the legislature that voted to allow guns in bars this year.  Again, most of the wingnuts weren’t from the 9th District, they were from Arkansas, Mississippi and the suburban counties in Tennessee.
