On Monday, March 20, the Tennessee House of Representatives is scheduled to consider and vote on House Bill 752. Please contact your state Representative and politely urge them to SUPPORT House Bill 752.
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. Individuals who seek out a protective order can be placed in a very dangerous situation and should be provided with the ability to protect themselves when and if necessary. This legislation could mean the difference between life and death for those individuals.
