Tennessee Firearms Association

Who We Are

The Tennessee Firearms Association is a Tennessee not-for-profit corporation formed to promote the right to keep and bear arms and to promote the safe and responsible use, ownership and carrying of firearms. 

The TFA is dedicated to restoring government to citizen control and giving full effect to the original intent of the Bill of Rights to the United States Constitution as well as to the provisions of the Tennessee Constitution with an emphasis on the 2nd and 10th Amendments to the United States Constitution and Article I, Section 26 of the Tennessee Constitution. Through a combination of advocacy, legislative involvement and grassroots engagement, the organization seeks to reassert the traditional American values of unalienable personal rights, limited governments, and state sovereignty.  The organization’s goal is to restore the Founding Fathers’ vision of sovereign states joining together as a free union, guided by honesty, common sense, and goodwill of its citizens.  The organization is nonpartisan.

What We Stand For

The Tennessee Firearms Association holds that every American is endowed with certain inalienable rights, granted to us by our Creator, and made our birthright by the sacrifices of the men and women who founded this state and country. The right to keep and bear arms is one of those inalienable rights; one that our government has no authority to infringe or take away.  One that our government did not create but merely acknowledges and claims to protect.

Our Mission

The Tennessee Firearms Association is dedicated to defending the right to keep and bear arms and promoting the responsible use, ownership and carrying of firearms.

Why You Should Join the TFA

The TFA has an experienced leaders that work with the General Assembly and the government of Tennessee to expand, restore and secure our rights. However, TFA is a grassroots organization.  Our presence in the capital works for you but the coordinated efforts of tens of thousands of individual gun owners is more important and significant.
