Urgent: Tennessee Senate to Consider Overriding Governor's Veto of Restaurant Carry Bill!

Wednesday, June 3, 2009

Please Contact Your State Senator Today!

On Wednesday, June 3, the Tennessee General Assembly voted 69 to 27 to override Governor Bredesen’s (D) veto of House Bill 962. This NRA-supported bill would enable law-abiding right-to-carry permit holders to carry a firearm for self defense in establishments that serve alcohol, provided they don’t consume while carrying. 

It is critical that you contact your State Senator immediately and ask them to override the Governor’s veto of HB 962. Remind them that 36 other states, including 7 of Tennessee’s border states, trusts their citizens to carry a firearm for self-defense in restaurants that serve alcohol, and its time that Tennessee do so as well.  Time is of the essence, so please contact them today!
