Tennessee: Pro-Hunting and Pro-Gun Bills Signed into Law

Having passed the Tennessee Legislature earlier this session, your NRA-ILA is glad to report that multiple pro-gun bills have recently been signed into law.

Senate Bill 1237, sponsored by state Senator Mike Bell (R-09) and state Representative Ron Travis (R-31), will strengthen Tennessee’s rich hunting heritage by expanding Tennessee’s apprentice program for those who want to try hunting.  This law will go into effect on July 1, 2015.

Senate Bill 1103, sponsored by state Senator Doug Overbey (R-2) and state Representative William Lamberth (R-44), will establish certain procedures regarding the disposition of confiscated or abandoned firearms in state or local custody, including gun buy-back programs.  This law will go into effect on July 1, 2015.

Senate Bill 1110, sponsored by state Senator Richard Briggs (R-7) and state Representative Terri Lynn Weaver (R-40), prohibits the use of any public funds, personnel, or property to enforce any federal law or regulation that regulates the ownership, use, or possession of firearms, ammunition, or firearms accessories.  This law goes into effect immediately.

Thank you to NRA members and Second Amendment supporters who contacted their elected officials in support of these important measures.  Your support helped make the 2015 legislative session a successful one.
