OK everyone from the fine state of Tennessee, this will be the third year in a row this has been out there and we need to get behind it and pass it this year. There are several other renditions but they all have "conditions" which will be used to take the "teeth" out of the bill.
The quote below is from the Tennessee Firearms Association alert.
"Please Support - SB3002/HB3560 - Employee Safe Commute Bill
This bill has been introduced by Senator Faulk and Representative Bass. It is a bi-partisan bill. This issue is a top issue for TFA in 2012.
This bill is directed an removing needless infringements under current law which employers can use to impair the ability of individuals who have been authorized by the state to carry firearms for personal defense to commute to and from work while in possession of their personal defense firearm. Without passage of this type of law, which already exists in many states, a citizen can be criminally prosecuted and/or terminated with cause simply by legally commuting to work and then parking at his or her place of employment. Without this change in the law, citizens are forced to travel without the option of a self-defense firearms, often at substantial distances, into dangerous areas and/or at night."
If you agree please get the e-mails and phone calls in motion. We are coming up on elections and may have some leverage.
