Please Contact Your State Senator Immediately!
Senate Bill 23, sponsored by State Senator Doug Jackson (D-25), will be heard by the full Senate on Wednesday, January 16. SB23 allows a person who has a valid Right-to-Carry permit to carry a firearm in a place where alcohol is served, as long as the permit holder is not consuming alcohol or is not otherwise prohibited by posting provisions.
Law-abiding permit holders should not be denied their right to self-defense simply because they choose to dine out with friends or family.
Please contact your State Senator toll-free today at (800) 449-8366 and respectfully urge him or her to support this important piece of self-defense legislation without any amendments. To identify your State Senator, please visit http://www.legislature.state.tn.us/senate/members/smembers.htm#Find.
