APPEARS IN Legal & Legislation

Tennessee Restaurant Carry Legislation Expected to be Heard on Wednesday, April 8

Tuesday, April 7, 2009

Please contact the Members of the Senate Judiciary Committee Today!

 

Senate Bill 1127, sponsored by State Senator Doug Jackson (D-25), is expected to be heard in the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday, April 8.  SB 1127 would allow a person with a handgun carry permit to carry in restaurants that serve alcoholic beverages as long as that person is not consuming alcoholic beverages and the restaurant is not an age-restricted venue.

 

Please contact members of the Senate Judiciary Committee and ask them to pass a clean bill free of any arbitrary restrictions on where and when a permit holder may carry. 

  

Its House companion, House Bill 962, passed the House Floor on Monday, April 6 by a vote of 70 to 26.  Unfortunately, HB 962, sponsored by State Representative Curry Todd (R-95) was amended with language that will prevent a Right-To-Carry permit holder from carrying in a restaurant that serves alcohol between the hours of 11:00 p.m. and 5:00 a.m.  NRA is working to get all restrictions, other than a prohibition on alcohol consumption, removed from this legislation.

 

Again, please contact the members of the Senate Judiciary Committee and respectfully ask them to pass a clean bill free of any arbitrary restrictions on where and when a permit holder may carry.  Contact information for Committee Officers and Members are listed below.
