APPEARS IN Legal & Legislation

Tennessee: House Bill 3125 to be Considered on Tuesday, April 20

Friday, April 16, 2010

On Tuesday, April 13, the House Finance, Ways, and Means Committee debated and then rolled House Bill 3125.  This legislation will now be heard on Tuesday, April 20.

HB3125 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.  Sponsored by State Representative Curry Todd (R-95), HB3125 was filed in response to a court ruling last November.  The previously enacted 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. 

The companion bill to HB3125 is Senate Bill 3012, authored by State Senator Doug Jackson (D-25), which passed the Senate Judiciary Committee by a vote of 7-2 on Tuesday, April 13.  This bill is headed to the Senate Finance, Ways, and Means Committee.

Please contact members of the House Finance, Ways, and Means Committee and urge them to stop playing politics and support HB3125 without any additional amendments.  Contact information for the committee can be found here.

Please also contact members of the Senate Finance, Ways, and Means Committee and urge them to support SB3012 without any additional amendments.  Contact information for the committee can be found below.
