Fellow Tennesseans - we really, really need to take action on this...
I just received this via email from the Tennessee Firearms Association. It appears that this bill is moving and we should help it all we can with phone calls, email, whatever!!! Note the TFA comment in bold below.
(Full Text) Handgun permit carry holders to carry guns in parks. Allows persons with handgun carry permit to carry in public parks, public postsecondary institutions, and places where alcoholic beverages are being served so long as that individual is not consuming alcohol. Allows judges to carry firearms where law enforcement can carry if they have permit or appropriate training. (S: Norris; H: Kelsey)
Senate Status: Referred to Senate Judiciary.
House Status: Set for House Judiciary Criminal Practice Subcommittee 04/01/2009.
TFA SUPPORTS this bill. Note that it covers parks, colleges and restaurants!!!!
Calls to your individual House Members are important. Second, emails should be sent.
