    Calling all Tennessee Volunteers

    Four pro-gun bills (HB962, HB959, HB960, and HB961) will be heard as early as tomorrow, Wednesday, February 25 in the House Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee of Criminal Practice and Procedure. I urge you to contact the members of this Subcommittee and ask them to vote for these House Bills.

    House Bill 962, sponsored by State Representative Curry Todd (R-95), permits citizens with a handgun carry permit to carry in restaurants that serve alcohol as long as the person is not consuming alcohol. This does not apply to bars, restaurants, and clubs where one must be a certain age to enter.

    House Bill 959, sponsored by State Representative Eddie Bass (D-65), would ensure the privacy of handgun permit holders by making records of permit applications and renewals confidential. Any public disclosure of this information would be a Class A misdemeanor.

    House Bill 960, sponsored by State Representative Harry Tindell (D-13), would allow persons with a handgun carry permit to carry firearms in local, state and federal parks. If passed, law-abiding citizens of the Volunteer State can lawfully carry within the confines of local, state and federal parks, further preserving their self-defense and Second Amendment rights. Currently, it is unlawful to do so.

    House Bill 961, sponsored by State Representative Mike Bell (R-26), authorizes a person with handgun carry permit to possess firearm in a refuge, public hunting area, wildlife management area, or on national forest land.

    Emails sent and calls made!

    I want each of these bills to make it to the floor for a vote because I think we have the best chance ever to get them passed.
