Tennessee: Privacy Protection Bill Advances Out of Senate Committee

Wednesday, April 3, 2013

Yesterday, the Senate Judiciary Committee unanimously voted 8 to 0 to send Senate Bill 108 to the Senate Calendar Committee where it will be scheduled for consideration on the Senate floor.  SB 108 would keep confidential all information on those residents who possess a Tennessee Handgun Carry Permit (HCP).  This privacy protection legislation has already passed in the Tennessee House of Representatives by an overwhelming 84 to 10 votePlease contact your state Senator in support of SB 108.

Sponsored by state Senator Ferrell Haile (R-18), Senate Bill 108 would make confidential and not open for public inspection, all information 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 38 other states already enjoy due to Right-to-Carry confidentiality laws in place.

The privacy of handgun carry permit holder information is essential for the protection of law-abiding gun owners in the Volunteer State.  There have been several instances nationwide of anti-gun media outlets publishing the personal information of handgun carry permit holders, and even providing an interactive map that showed exactly where carry permit holders live.  SB 108 would ensure this never happens in Tennessee.

In addition to asking your state Senator for a “YES” vote on SB 108, urge him or her to sign on as a co-sponsor to this privacy protection legislation.
