Tennessee: House Committee Hearing Scheduled for Tomorrow Morning

Tennessee: House Committee Hearing Scheduled for Tomorrow Morning

Today, the hearing for Senate Bill 1178 was postponed until next week in the Senate Judiciary Committee and no action was taken on it.

Tomorrow, the House Constitutional Protections and Sentencing Subcommittee is scheduled to consider multiple gun bills, and committee members need to hear from you now!  Please contact committee members and urge them to OPPOSE House Bill 1476 and to SUPPORT House Bill 409 and House Bill 712.


Anti-Gun Bill:

House Bill 1476, sponsored by Rep. G. A. Hardaway, would create fines and penalties for anyone who leaves a firearm or ammunition in a motor vehicle or boat without the firearm or ammunition being stored in a locked cabinet, safe, vault, case, or secured with a firearm locking device if the vehicle or boat is left unattended or with a person under 18 years of age; directs fines collected be deposited in the criminal injuries compensation fund and the domestic violence community education fund.  Not only does this legislation intrude on an individual’s ability to effectively defend themselves in certain situations, it would also place the financial burden of completely unrelated funds and programs onto those individuals that it has ensnared. 

Pro-Gun Bills:

House Bill 409, sponsored by Rep. Bruce Griffey, would confer criminal and civil immunity upon a person who uses or threatens force in self-defense, defense of another, or defense from a person committing a criminal offense, unless the person against whom force is used is a law enforcement officer during discharge of the officer's duties and the person knows the person is an officer.

House Bill 712, sponsored by Rep. Jeremy Faison, would streamline state law and remove confusion by updating the definition of “firearm” and “antique firearm” to mirror the terms used in federal law.

Again, please contact members of the House Constitutional Protections and Sentencing Subcommittee and strongly urge them to OPPOSE House Bill 1476 and to SUPPORT House Bill 409 and House Bill 712.​
