Senate Bill 2376, sponsored by state Senator Mike Bell and state Representative Andy Holt, passed on the House and Senate Floors last week with overwhelming majorities. SB 2376 passed in the Senate with a 28-5 vote and in the House with a 69-24 vote. The legislation was sent to the Governor’s desk on Monday, April 25, and he will have 10 days to take action on the bill. If he signs the bill or allows the bill to sit on his desk without action, the legislation will become law. Please contact Governor Haslam and urge him to sign this important self-defense legislation into law.
This important self-defense legislation would permit full-time employees of state public colleges or universities to carry a handgun while on property owned, operated, or used by the employing college or university if the employee has a valid Tennessee handgun carry permit.
