Several Pro-Gun Bills on Tennessee Governor Bredesen’s Desk!

Friday, May 4, 2007

House Bill 1285 and companion bill, Senate Bill 1597, House Bill 145 and companion bill, Senate Bill 135, along with House Bill 1907 and companion bill, Senate Bill 11 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 by prohibiting any government agency from regulating the lawful sale, possession, transfer, transport and carry of firearms, during a state of emergency 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. 

 

House Bill 1907, "Castle Doctrine" legislation sponsored by State Representative Randy Rinks (D-71) and its companion bill, Senate Bill 11 sponsored by State Senator Doug Jackson (D-25), unanimously passed Senate on Thursday, May 3.  HB 1907/SB 11 expands Tennessee’s current statute giving homeowners and drivers wide discretion in the use of self-defense against intruders.

 

Please call Governor Bredesen’s (D) office at (615) 741-2001 and urge him to sign HB 1285/SB 1597; HB 145/SB 135 and HB1907/SB11.  Also, please contact your State Legislator at (615) 741-3511 and thank them for their support of all these bills.
