TN Pro Carry Bills in Legislature?

Recommended Posts

What pro carry bills are there in the legislature?  The only one that the NRA has advertised for is HB 1264 that created a lower tier concealed carry permit that required less training to obtain from the state.  

I do not see the NRA advocating for any bills in Tennessee that reduce restrictions on where we can carry presently, such as college campus carry.  I also do not see a push for any bills that remove the requirement for a handgun carry permit such as constitutional carry.

Unless there are bills being worked on, it is concerning that there does not seem to be any movement in carry bills this year even with a new house speaker and governor.  Carry reform that our surrounding states already have, such as college carry and constitutional carry, should be easy with our legislature make up and new governor.

The new governor did not want Constitutional Carry to be an issue, his agenda for ESAs (school savings accounts) and the push for college/vocational courses for incarcerated individuals are his focus.  With the new speaker of the House, the Governor's wishes are going to get the attention.  The Holt bill on two tiered permits was an attempt to honor the governos's statement that he thought permits should not "cost anything", but DOS and the Sheriffs Assoc. demanded background checks and fingerprints, and won the day, so the Holt bill wound up behind the budget.

There was no use in putting up CC to have it beat down this year, we stand a far better chance next year with the additional States passing the same thing, and it being an election year.

People have to get off their rears to work at it, we took 3 important seats in the House last year, removed Boss Doss, Tim Wirgau and replaced Jimmy Eldridge with pro firearms Rights members, Dogget, Griffey and Todd respectively.  That has not gone unnoticed.  For the first time in 8 years I have had a chance  to sit down with the House Speaker to discuss a firearms bill (HB0409) and  have opened a dialog about CC for the next year.
