Restaurant Carry Reform Measure Takes a Step Forward in the Volunteer State

Wednesday, March 10, 2010

Please Contact the Members of the House Judiciary Committee Today!

On Wednesday, March 10 the House Judiciary Criminal Practice Sub-Committee passed House Bill 3125 by a vote of 4-2.  This legislation will now be heard by the House Judiciary Committee.

HB3125, with an 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 State 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.  This bill, with the NRA-backed amendment, will fix any ambiguity. 

NRA-ILA would like to thank the of the members of the House Judiciary Criminal Practice Sub-Committee for their hard work on HB3125.

Please contact members of the House Judiciary Committee TODAY and respectfully urge them to support HB3125.  Contact information for the committee can be found below.
