Tennessee: Restaurant Carry Reform Bill to be Heard Tomorrow!

Tuesday, April 6, 2010

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

After a two week delay, House Bill 3125 will be heard tomorrow, Wednesday, April 7, in the House Finance, Ways, and Means Budget Sub-Committee.

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 in 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 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. 

Please contact members of the House Finance, Ways, and Means Budget Sub-Committee and urge them to support HB3125 without any additional amendments.  Contact information for the committee can be found below.
