Tennessee: NRA-Drafted Employee Protection Legislation Introduced in the Volunteer State

Thursday, February 2, 2012

The Tennessee General Assembly is now in session and multiple bills that are crucial to law-abiding gun owners have been introduced.  On January 25, Senate Bill 2992 and Senate Bill 3002 were introduced in the Tennessee Senate.  The House companion bills, House Bill 3559 and House Bill 3560, were filed on the following day.  These NRA-drafted bills would prevent employers from discriminating and enforcing policies against the storage of lawfully-owned firearms in employees' locked private motor vehicles while parked at work.  

Introduced by state Senator Mike Faulk (R-4), SB 3002 would recognize that hard-working Tennesseans’ right to self-defense does not end when they drive onto their employer’s property or into publicly accessible parking lots.  It would allow firearms to be stored out of sight in a locked vehicle.  Senate Bill 3002 has been assigned to the state Senate Judiciary Committee for consideration.  State Representative Eddie Bass (D-65) introduced HB 3560, the House companion of SB 3002. 

SB 2992, also introduced by state Senator Mike Faulk (R-4), is a Firearm Discrimination Prevention bill that would protect law-abiding gun owners from anti-gun policies by employers across the state, including forced firearm registration, random vehicle firearm searches, and “gun zone” parking lots for gun owning employees.  The state Senate Commerce, Labor & Agriculture will first consider SB 2992.  HB 3560, the House companion of SB 2992, was also introduced by state Representative Bass. 

SB 3002 and SB 2992 could be heard as early as Tuesday, February 14 in their respective Senate committees.  So please contact your state Representative TODAY and urge him or her to support HB 3560 and HB 3559.  Contact information for your state Representative can be found hereAlso, please contact your state Senator and urge him or her to support SB 3002 and SB 2992.  Contact information for your state Senator can be found here

Please continue to check you e-mail and www.NRAILA.org for information regarding other pro-gun and pro-hunting bills that have been introduced in the Volunteer State.
