Important Tennessee Pro-Gun Legislation Headed to Governor’s Desk!

Wednesday, May 2, 2007

House Bill 1285 and companion bill, Senate Bill 1597, along with House Bill 145 and companion bill, Senate 135 are all heading to Governor Bredesen’s (D) desk for his consideration.

 

House Bill 1285, sponsored by State Representative Dolores Gresham (R-94) and its companion bill, Senate Bill 1597, introduced by State Senator Mark Norris (R-32), overwhelmingly passed the State Legislature. HB 1285/SB 1597 would protect our Second Amendment rights during a state of emergency by prohibiting any government agency from regulating the lawful sale, possession, transfer, transport and carry of firearms, such as occurred following Hurricane Katrina.   

  

 

House Bill 145, “No-Net-Loss” legislation, sponsored by State Representative Michael McDonald (D-44), and its companion bill, Senate Bill 135, sponsored by State Senator Doug Jackson (D-25), were both overwhelmingly passed by the Legislature.  HB 145/SB 135 require land managed by the Tennessee Wildlife Resource Agency to have a base line number of public hunting acres that are always open to hunting, guaranteeing that future generations have the same hunting opportunities that are enjoyed today.

 

Please call Governor Bredesen’s (D) office at (615) 741-2001 and urge him to sign HB 1285/SB 1597 and HB 145/SB 135.

 

Also, please call your State Legislator at (615)-741-3511 and thank them for their support of HB 1285/SB 1597 and HB 145/ SB 135.
