Tennessee: Pro-Gun Bills to Be Heard Wednesday, March 10

Monday, March 8, 2010

Please call your State Representative Today

 

The following legislation is scheduled to be heard in the House Judiciary Criminal Practice Sub-Committee on Wednesday, March 10. 

 

Your Representative is a member of the House Judiciary Criminal Practice Sub-Committee and NEEDS to hear from you TODAY!

 

Please contact your Representative TODAY and ask him or her to vote in SUPPORT of HB3125 with NRA-backed amendment, HB2719, HB2726 and HB3141.  Contact information for the committee members can be found below.  If you need help identifying your Representative, please click here.

 

House Bill 3125, with an anticipated NRA-backed amendment, 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.  HB3125, introduced by Representative Curry Todd (R-95), was filed in response to Chancellor Claudia Bonnyman’s ruling last November. The current law was ruled as being unconstitutionally vague because of a perceived ambiguity over the state’s definition of restaurants.  HB3125 with the NRA-backed amendment will fix any ambiguity. 

 

House Bill 2719, authored by State Representative Stacey Campfield (R-18), would enable a person who has a valid Right-to-Carry permit to carry their firearm on a greenway.  Greenways are linear parks or corridors of protected open space. 

 

House Bill 2726, also sponsored by Representative Campfield, would allow permit holders to possess a firearm in their motor vehicle on a public college campus parking lot if the handgun is stored out of sight in a locked vehicle. 

 

House Bill 3141, sponsored by Mike McDonald (D-44), would permit a law-abiding individual to store firearms in a locked motor vehicle while parked on a publicly accessible parking lot controlled by an employer or a business that he or she frequents.  This bill would protect your right to keep a firearm in your car for self-defense, hunting, or target shooting before or after work. 

 

Permit confidentiality and the lawful transport of firearms legislation have also been filed and will be heard in the House sub-committee.  We will keep you posted on which bills to follow as they move through committee.
