Tenn. law bans posting images that "cause emotional distress"

Added on by Alex Koehne.

This is absurd. A new law in Tennessee purports to make it illegal and punishable to post, host, or even look at any image that is likely to "frighten, intimidate or cause emotional distress" to the viewer. Not only is this a blatant disregard of the 1st amendment, but it can only lead to bad. It's draconian, Orwellian and dumb.

Read more about it at ars and get angry. If it wasn't so laughably ridiculous, this would be a run to your window and shout "I'm as mad as hell and I'm not going to take this anymore" sort of moment.
