At any time, pro-gun legislation House Bill 1264 has been scheduled for consideration in the House. Its companion bill, Senate Bill 705, could also potentially receive a vote at any time. Please contact your lawmakers and strongly urge them to SUPPORT House Bill 1264 and Senate Bill 705 when they come up for a vote.
House Bill 1264 /Senate Bill 705, sponsored by Representative Andy Holt and Senator John Stevens, would create a new concealed carry permit in Tennessee that would make it more accessible for Tennesseans to exercise their right to self-defense. The new permit will allow for concealed carry only and will not apply to higher education campuses. Further, the training required in the bill can be a hunter education course or firearm safety course, and can be taken online. By creating a new concealed carry permit, Tennesseans are able to choose which permit option is best for them and their lifestyle in order to exercise their constitutional right to self-defense.
Again, please contact your lawmakers and strongly urge them to SUPPORT these pro-gun bills.
