Tennessee: Pro-Gun/Pro-Hunting Bills to Take Effect Tomorrow

Monday, June 30, 2014

Tomorrow, July 1, Senate Bill 1774 and Senate Bill 1777 will take effect in Tennessee.  SB 1774, sponsored by state Senator Mike Bell (R-9), allows a law-abiding gun owner to carry a firearm in his or her own vehicle without a Handgun Carry Permit (HCP).  Senate Bill 1774 was signed into law on May 1.

SB 1777, also sponsored by Senator Bell, amends Tennessee’s current hunter harassment laws by prohibiting anti-hunting radicals from using drones to interfere with those lawfully hunting or fishing.  The use of drones by anti-hunting extremists, with the expressed intention of spooking wildlife or catching a hunter off-guard, is extremely dangerous and could potentially result in injury.  This legislation will protect the rights and safety of hunters afield.  Senate Bill 1777 was signed into law on April 4.
