Tennessee: Pro-Gun Legislation to Be Heard in the General Assembly

This week, several pro-gun bills are scheduled for hearings in the Tennessee General Assembly.  Please contact members of the Senate Judiciary Committee and members of the House Civil Justice Subcommittee and ask for their support of the following bills:

Senate Bill 1559 and House Bill 1644, sponsored by state Senator Mike Bell (R-9) and state Representative Tilman Goins (R-10) respectively, would require the chief administrative officer of a private school to implement a handgun carry policy.

Senate Bill 2376, also sponsored by Senator Bell, would allow an employee of a public college or university with a valid handgun carry permit to carry a handgun on school property.

House Bill 2575, sponsored by state Representative Gerald McCormick (R-26), would extend permit renewals to occur every eight years and would also lower handgun permit fees.

Senate Bill 1991, sponsored by state Senator Brian Kelsey (R-3), would prohibit a public institution from taking action against an employee or student for the lawful transportation or storage of a firearm or ammunition.

We strongly urge you to contact members of the Senate Judiciary Committee and members of the House Civil Justice Subcommittee and ask for their support on these critical bills.
