Tennessee State Senate Must Address Restaurant Carry Veto Override

Thursday, May 20, 2010

Please Contact the Senate Caucus Leaders Today!

On Tuesday, May 18, Tennessee Governor Phil Bredesen (D) vetoed Senate Bill 3012, NRA-backed legislation that would have given gun owners the state chance to defend themselves in establishments that serve alcohol.

Sponsored by State Senator Doug Jackson (D-25) and State Representative Curry Todd (R-95), SB 3012 would have allowed 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. 

A veto override is critical, but due to rules adopted by the Tennessee General Assembly, the State Senate must address the veto override, before the House can take action.  With only a handful of legislative days remaining in both the Senate and House, it is critical that the Senate take up the veto override immediately.

Please contact the Senate Caucus Leaders TODAY and respectfully urge them to take up the veto override early next week, preferably no later than Wednesday, May 26.  Contact information may be found below:
