Please Stand-Up and Make Your Voices Heard!

 

Four pro-gun bills (HB962 with NRA-backed amendment, HB959, HB960, and HB961) will be heard as early as tomorrow, Wednesday, February 25 in the House Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee of Criminal Practice and Procedure.

 

 

House Bill 962, sponsored by State Representative Curry Todd (R-95), permits citizens with a handgun carry permit to carry in restaurants that serve alcohol as long as the person is not consuming alcohol. This does not apply to bars, restaurants, and clubs where one must be a certain age to enter.

 

 

House Bill 959, sponsored by State Representative Eddie Bass (D-65), would ensure the privacy of handgun permit holders by making records of permit applications and renewals confidential. Any public disclosure of this information would be a Class A misdemeanor.

 

 

House Bill 960, sponsored by State Representative Harry Tindell (D-13), would allow persons with a handgun carry permit to carry firearms in local, state and federal parks. If passed, law-abiding citizens of the Volunteer State can lawfully carry within the confines of local, state and federal parks, further preserving their self-defense and Second Amendment rights. Currently, it is unlawful to do so.

 

 

House Bill 961, sponsored by State Representative Mike Bell (R-26), authorizes a person with handgun carry permit to possess firearm in a refuge, public hunting area, wildlife management area, or on national forest land.

 

Please contact the members of the Criminal Practice and Procedure Subcommittee TODAY and respectfully urge them to vote for HB962 with NRA-backed amendment, HB959, HB960, and HB961. Contact information can be found below.
