Today, the Tennessee Senate approved the General Assembly Conference Committee report of House Bill 962 by a 24-7 vote. The House passed HB 962 last week by a 66-23 vote. This report removed all arbitrary restricting amendments.
HB962, sponsored by State Representative Curry Todd (R-95) in the House and State Senator Doug Jackson (D-25) in the Senate, would enable a person who has a valid Right-to-Carry permit to carry a firearm into restaurants where alcohol may be served, as long as the permit holder is not consuming alcohol or is not otherwise prohibited by posting provisions.
HB962 now heads to Governor Phil Bredesen’s (D) desk for his consideration.
We would like to thank all of the NRA members who took the time to contact their State Legislators in support of this important pro-gun measure. We would also like to thank the sponsors and co-sponsors of HB962 for their continued support of this important Right-to-Carry reform bill.
Please contact Governor Bredesen TODAY and respectfully urge him to sign HB962. The Governor can be reached by phone at (615)741-2001 or email Phil.Bredesen@tn.gov.
