Tennessee: Numerous Firearm Bills to Be Heard Next Week

Tennessee: Numerous Firearm Bills to Be Heard Next Week

The future of your Second Amendment Rights is on full display this session, with dozens of firearm related bills having already been introduced. On Tuesday March 5, three separate committees will be considering a number of firearm related bills. Many of the bills being considered look to diminish your Second Amendment Rights in the Volunteer State. It's critical that NRA members and Second Amendment supporters get involved. Please use the three separate Take Action buttons below to engage with committee members, encouraging them to support pro-gun legislation and oppose anti-gun legislation. 

House Banking & Consumer Affairs Subcommittee - Tuesday March 5 at 1:30 p.m.

House Bill 2762 provides critical privacy protections on financial data for those purchasing firearms, firearm parts, and ammunition by prohibiting the use of firearm/ammunition specific merchant category codes throughout the state. Additionally, HB 2762 provides remedies in cases where a financial institution violates provisions of the bill.

Please use the button below to contact subcommittee members and urge them to SUPPORT HB 2762!

Senate Judiciary Committee - Tuesday, March 5th, at 3:00 PM

Pro-Gun

SJR 904 proposes an amendment to Article I, Section 26 of the Constitution of Tennessee to propose the following language: “That the citizens of this State have a right to keep, bear, and wear arms.”

Anti-Gun

SB 1695 and SB 1927 undermine Tennessee's firearms preemption statute which provides consistent firearm laws throughout the state, by allowing local governments to dictate storage laws. This could subject citizens to a patchwork of firearm laws depending on their locality. Mandatory storage laws are a one size all approach that could subject an individual who is the victim of a crime to penalties based on how their firearms were stored.

SB 2449 and SB 2475 diminish self-defense options for law-abiding citizens by eliminating the ability to carry a concealed firearm without first obtaining government permission. 

SB 2456 prohibits the manufacture, distribution, sale, or transfer of unfinished frames and receivers. 

House Criminal Justice Subcommittee - Tuesday, March 5th, at 12:00 PM.

Anti-Gun

HB 1587 is an anti-business bill that seeks to prohibit the manufacture of many of the most popular sporting firearms. Many lawful and highly regulated firearm manufacturers call Tennessee home. If passed this would drive these businesses out of the state, taking well-paying skilled jobs from the state without providing any public safety solutions. 

HB 1589 seeks to implement severe restrictions on firearms magazines by prohibiting the manufacture, transfer, or purchase of magazines capable of holding more than the arbitrarily set limit of ten, provided in this legislation. 

HB 1592 creates an offense if the owner of a firearm fails to report the loss or theft of the firearm to law enforcement within 24 hours.

HB 1593 seeks to implement so-called "universal background checks" by requiring all firearm transfers be conducted through a licensed dealer. 

HB 1935 seeks to prohibit the sale of certain semi-automatic firearms by incorporating a "features" test, similar to prohibitions on semi-automatic rifles in states like California, New York and New Jersey. 

HB 2277 discriminates against young adults 18-20 years old, by eliminating their ability to purchase and acquire firearms through licensed dealers. 

This is not an exhaustive list of the firearms-related bills in Tennessee. Again, please contact committee members and urge them to support pro-gun bills and oppose anti-gun bills. Stay tuned to your inbox and www.nraila.org for updates.
