House Sponsors Still Needed for Companion Bills – Please Contact Your State Representative Today
The 2012 Session of the Tennessee General Assembly is underway. On January 25, Senate Bill 3002 and Senate Bill 2992 were introduced by state Senator Mike Faulk (R-4). These NRA-drafted bills would prevent employers from discriminating and enforcing policies against the storage of lawfully-owned firearms in employees' locked private motor vehicles parked at work.
SB 3002 would recognize that hard-working Tennesseans’ right to self-defense does not end when they drive onto their employer’s property or into publicly accessible parking lots. It will allow firearms to be stored out of sight in a locked vehicle. SB 2992 is a Firearm Discrimination Prevention bill that would protect law-abiding gun owners from anti-gun policies by employers across the state, including forced firearm registration, random vehicle firearm searches, and “gun zone” parking lots for gun owning employees. SB 2992 coincides with SB 3002.
These bills are still in need of House sponsors. Please contact your state Representative today and ask them to sponsor the companion bills for both SB 3002 and SB 2992. Contact information for your state Representative can be found here. Also, please contact House Speaker, Beth Harwell (R-56), and urge her to support the House companion bills when introduced. The Speaker can be contacted by phone at (615) 741-0709 or via e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
