Margaret Liebold started this petition to Tennessee State Senate

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."  -Preamble to the Declaration of Independence

I agree 100% with these words. I believe (and hope) that most Americans would agree with these all well. These words are precisely why I am starting this petition.
I have recently come across an opposing petition to shut down local attraction Mckamey Manor.

I would like to first start off by acknowledging that this particular attraction is not my cup of tea. As someone who has taken the time to watch the YouTube videos of prior walk throughs and visit the Mckamey Manor website I would personally NEVER attempt to go through this particular attraction myself.

HOWEVER as a citizen of these GREAT United states I firmly believe that it is your constitutional right to pursue such an activity if you so desire. It is clearly stated on their website (among the other various requirements) that you must watch the available videos of prior participants online AND sign a 40 PAGE WAIVER. If after reading this waiver and watching various videos you still wish to pursue this attraction IT IS YOUR RIGHT AS AN AMERICAN!!!! People may say whatever they wish in regard to Russ Mckamay and his "loopholes" but if our law enforcement officials cannot and HAVE not filed any actual infractions against this man then it is our duty as AMERICANS to presume he is innocent until proven guilty.

Once again I would like to reiterate that this IS NOT MY CUP OF TEA. I applaud the people that have the gall to attempt a walk through. I also understand that there are a great number of people opposed to this attraction. I merely ask those against it to consider for moment that a great number of people who FULLY understand what they are walking into still want to attempt such a thing. If this is the kind of thing that give these people an adrenaline rush then why not let them? Is it causing the opposed any physical or mental harm? The long and short of it is no. While you may not understand what drives such people to do such things it is their right and I personally feel we should not judge. I understand this is the "Bible Belt" and I am certain  a great number of those against Mckamey Manor justify their opposition in the name of the Lord. While I myself may not be a religious person I am fully aware of the passage that says, "Judge not let ye be judged Matthew 7:1-3".

The thought of someone shaving my head is enough to deter me. BUT if I felt the desire to throw chance to the wind and try my luck at Mckamey Manor I would genuinely hope that no one would stand in the way of my right as an American to pursue my own, personal happiness.
