    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.

    SB 1129
    HB 0724*
    (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.

    We do need to get on top of this. Thanks for the heads- up!

    I have already called and emailed my Senator and Reps. Plus all the members of the committees who will vote on this and other pro-gun bills.

    I would love to be able to go out to eat without having to disarm! Plus being able to protect my kids at the park!
