    Just another reason why you don't mess with Carrie Underwood!!!
    A couple of weeks ago we reported how Carrie was pissed about an ag gag bill getting passed by Tennessee lawmakers.
    The ag gag bill would've made it basically impossible for animals rights activists to secretly document abuse.
    Carrie was so mad back then she said she would show up at Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam's house if it was passed!
    Well, Bill made sure that didn't happen.
    His office has released this statement:
    “Agriculture is the No. 1 industry in Tennessee. Farmers play a vital role in our state’s economy, heritage and history. I understand their concerns about large scale attacks on their livelihoods. I also appreciate that the types of recordings this bill targets may be obtained at times under false pretenses, which I think is wrong.
    Our office has spent a great deal of time considering this legislation. We’ve had a lot of input from people on all sides of the issue. After careful consideration, I am going to veto the legislation. Some vetoes are made solely on policy grounds. Other vetoes may be the result of wanting the General Assembly to reconsider the legislation for a number of reasons. My veto here is more along the lines of the latter. I have a number of concerns.
    First, the Attorney General says the law is constitutionally suspect. Second, it appears to repeal parts of Tennessee’s Shield Law without saying so. If that is the case, it should say so. Third, there are concerns from some district attorneys that the act actually makes it more difficult to prosecute animal cruelty cases, which would be an unintended consequence.
    For these reasons, I am vetoing HB1191/SB1248, and I respectfully encourage the General Assembly to reconsider this issue.”
    And here was Carrie's tweet response:
    "Great News!"
    Now all that has to happen is for the General Assembly in Tennessee not to make a fuss over all this, and just let it be!
    Animal rights are here to stay, despite what anyone else may want - and supporters of animal rights will do anything they can to ensure those rights!
    And that's the truth!
