Contact your state Senator TODAY in support of Senate Bill 108
Tomorrow, April 10, Senate Bill 108, sponsored by state Senator Ferrell Haile (R-18), will be considered on the Senate floor. SB 108 would keep confidential all information on those residents who possess a Tennessee Handgun Carry Permit (HCP). This measure was recently reported in the Senate Judiciary Committee by a unanimous vote, and has passed in the Tennessee House of Representatives by an overwhelming 84 to 10 vote.
Senate Bill 108 would make confidential and not open for public inspection, all information pertaining to a handgun carry permit application or renewal application and the status of a handgun carry permit. Tennesseans deserve the same protections that residents in 38 other states now enjoy due to Right-to-Carry confidentiality laws in place.
The privacy of handgun carry permit holder information is essential for the protection of law-abiding gun owners in the Volunteer State. There have been several instances nationwide of anti-gun media outlets publishing the personal information of handgun carry permit holders, and even providing an interactive map that showed exactly where carry permit holders live. SB 108 would ensure this never happens in Tennessee.
Please contact your state Senator TODAY and encourage them to protect the privacy of law-abiding gun owners by supporting Senate Bill 108. For help identifying your state Senator, please click here.
