Recent Legislation ?

Postby Mousegun » Thu Mar 30, 2017 9:18 am

Lets have some discussion about the following legislation. I have been away for a few days and lost track of a few results up to now.

Tomorrow, the Tennessee House Civil Justice Subcommittee is scheduled to consider a number of pro- and anti-gun bills. Please contact members of the subcommittee and urge them to support the pro-gun bills that will expand your rights and to oppose the anti-gun bills that threaten your Second Amendment rights.

Those bills to be considered include:

Pro-Gun

House Bill 1006, sponsored by Representative Andy Holt (R-3), would apply criminal and civil immunity upon a person who lawfully uses a firearm in self-defense, defense of another, or defense from a person committing criminal offense.

House Bill 40, sponsored by Representative James Van Huss (R-6), would allow lawful gun owners to openly carry their firearms without a permit.

House Bill 27, sponsored by Representative Timothy Hill (R-3), would exempt active-duty military service members and veterans who have specialties as military police, special operations, or Special Forces from concealed carry permit firing range requirements.

Anti-Gun

House Bill 1319, sponsored by Representative Mike Stewart (D-52), would criminalize the private transfer of a firearm by requiring any sale or transfer to be done only through a federally licensed gun dealer with limited exceptions.

House Bill 961, sponsored by Representative Johnnie Turner (D-85), would allow the issuance of a temporary order of protection preventing a person to possess a firearm based on a law enforcement officer’s judgement that the person is a danger to another person. This bill would violate your right to due process.

House Bill 1395, sponsored by Representative Joe Towns, Jr. (D-84), would require a gun owner to report a lost or stolen firearm within 48 hours. A gun owner failing to do so would be required to pay a $250 fine. Individuals who have experienced traumatic events like a burglary or robbery should not be further victimized by the law if they don’t have an immediate inventory of their lost items.

Looks like there is still a possibility for passage of the bill relaxing the rules for sound SUPPRESSORS. Get busy and send email to yer reps asap. Remind them that it is a hearing protection issue and not a "thugs get silent guns" issue...
