Tennessee Pro-Gun Measure To Be Heard On Senate Floor

posted on May 10, 2017

A pair of bills meant to challenge local ordinances that have been passed in violation of Tennessee’s firearms pre-emption law are now making their way through both statehouses.

SB 445 and HB 508 would create a private cause of action for a party that is adversely affected by a local ordinance, policy or other enactment that violates Tennessee’s pre-emption laws. Currently, the patchwork of such ordinances risks ensnaring law-abiding citizens as they travel from place to place. Until now, they’ve had limited recourse to fight against being prosecuted under such laws, despite the fact that the laws themselves are technically illegal. However, should these two measures pass, they would be able to sue the cities who put the pre-empted measures into place.

Use Your Power!

Last week, HB 508 passed in the House, and now its companion bill is headed to the Senate floor. It’s important that Tennessee residents urge their senators to support SB 445 when it comes up for a vote. To contact your senator, click here.
