Important pro-gun legislation has passed out of the House Civil Justice Subcommittee and will move to the full House Civil Justice Committee for consideration. Your NRA-ILA will update you when this legislation is scheduled for a hearing.
House Bill 752, sponsored by state Representative Tilman Goins, would allow a person, who is granted an order of protection and who is not otherwise a prohibited person according to state or federal law, to carry a firearm for 60 days after the initial order of protection is issued. This would allow a person under an order of protection to exercise his or her right to self-defense while allowing time to complete the Tennessee handgun carry permit process.
Once again, your NRA-ILA will keep you updated on the status of HB 752 when it has received a scheduled hearing. Please continue to check www.NRAILA.org and your email inbox for alerts on the latest action items.
