Consideration of Tennessee's Restaurant Carry Bill Delayed Two Weeks

Wednesday, March 24, 2010

Please Contact the Members of the
House Finance, Ways, and Means Budget Sub-Committee!

Today, Wednesday, March 24, the House Finance, Ways, and Means Budget Sub-Committee heard House Bill 3125 and decided to roll the bill two weeks.  It will not be heard again until Wednesday, April 7.

HB3125, with an NRA-backed amendment, would enable a person who has a valid Right-to-Carry permit to carry a firearm for self-defense 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.  Introduced by State Representative Curry Todd (R-95), HB3125 was filed in response to a court ruling last November.  The current law was held to be 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. 

It is imperative to continue to contact members of the House Finance, Ways, and Means Budget Sub-Committee and respectfully urge them to vote for HB3125 with the NRA-backed amendment.  Contact information for the committee can be found below.
