Tennessee Right-To-Carry Reform Legislation Needs Our Help!

Thursday, May 24, 2007

Please call the House Budget Sub-Committee Today!

 

Two pieces of Right-to-Carry reform legislation pending in the House Budget Sub-Committee will be heard on Tuesday, May 29.

 

House Bill 132 would allow a person with a Right-to-Carry permit to possess a firearm in all public hunting areas, refuges, wildlife management areas, and national forests managed by the state and; 

 

House Bill 2184 would allow any resident who has a Right-to-Carry permit to possess his or her handgun while within the boundaries of any state park and all areas for recreational purposes.

 

Please contact the House Budget Sub-Committee at (615) 741-2031 and ask them to support HB 2184, as amended, but to remove the signage requirement and to vote “YES” on HB 132.

 

The goal of this common-sense legislation is to provide a means of self-defense for Tennessee handgun carry permit holders in areas currently restricted.
