Attempts to kill the restaurant carry bills

Recommended Posts

We need to contact the House and tell them to pass a clean bill.

 

You can use the site to find your "Representative", if you don't know who it is, and/or dial their extension using their first or last name at the toll free number below.

House: 800-449-8366

 

It looks like our two main trouble makers are:

 

1. G.A. Hardaway, a Memphis Democrat that is the Rainbow PUSH Coalition Political Director, need I say more? Hardaway may be looking out for some of his constituents by infringing on the rights of citizens trying to protect themselves, as he represents some of the most violent crime ridden parts of The Mogadishu of the West:

2. Our old enemy, Democrat Kent Coleman, who lied on his NRA survey about this very subject to get elected. It's a mystery why this gun grabber still has this seat.

Thanks in advance for your time,

Eleven (11) Amendments have been added to HB0962

(restaurant carry bill) which appear to me to be

attempts to make the bill so odious that the

supporters won't vote for it. Keep making those

calls urging "clean" bills HB0962/SB1127. - Tim

When the legislators say ok we will pass it but if we do we are going to make the buisness ban it or spend so much money that they go out of buisness trying to bot post it it is pretty jacked up.

Maybe they should copy Florida, which is bad enough, but liveable.

 

I always figured Tennessee to be a pro-gun place.
