Tennessee: Permit Confidentiality Bill to be Heard in Senate Committee Tomorrow

Monday, March 18, 2013

Contact Senate Judiciary Committee Members TODAY in Support of SB 108!

Tomorrow at 3:00 p.m., the Senate Judiciary Committee is scheduled to consider Senate Bill 108 by state Senator Ferrell Haile (R-18).  SB 108 would make confidential all information on those residents who possess a Tennessee Handgun Carry Permit (HCP).  Last week, the Tennessee House of Representatives passed its companion to SB 108, House Bill 9, sponsored by state Representative William Lamberth (R-44), by an overwhelming 84 to 10 vote.

Senate Bill 108 would make confidential, and not open for public inspection, all information contained in and pertaining to a handgun carry permit application or renewal application and the status of a handgun carry permit.  Tennesseans deserve the same protections that residents in 34 states already enjoy due to Right-to-Carry confidentiality laws in place.

The privacy of handgun carry permit holders’ information is essential for the protection of law-abiding gun owners in the Volunteer State.  Recently, in New York, there have been several instances of anti-gun media outlets publishing the names and addresses of handgun carry permit holders, and even providing an interactive map that showed exactly where carry permit holders live.

Please contact members of the Senate Judiciary Committee TODAY and respectfully urge them to vote for SB 108.  Contact information for Committee members is provided below.
