Thread: Tennessee trying to change laws.

    Do you know how long the gov. is going to let this bill sit on his desk before he makes a decision? I've read editorials calling for him to Veto, and they even admitted that the veto would be overturned. . . .they just want to "delay the inevitable"

    Supposedly, they're asking for input. The rumor mill has it that Gov. Bredesen is keeping a For/Against tally sheet on his desk. At the end of the prescribed signage period, he'll go with the majority of calls/emails/letters/faxes to his office. 1 of three things could happen.

    1. Sign into law
    2. Veto, by which the House can override with a simple majority (which they have)
    3. Let it sit for 10 days (I think), where it automatically becomes law.

    Thanks for the info. I'm writing an e-mail right now. I encourage everyone in TN to do the same if they haven't already.

  5. Bredesen vetoed to restaurant bill but it was overturned by a majority vote so we can start carrying in places that serve alcohol July 14th.

  6. Maybe. A local lawyer is trying to push through a loophole that would give Davidson county the power to ban guns in any restaurant that sells beer. Note I said beer. The county handles beer licenses and the state handles liquor and wine licenses. A restaurant that only serves liquor and wine is not under county control so this ban would not effect them. I believe it would only affect Davidson county, but it would set a president that other counties could adopt.

    It's been a few days since I checked on this, so please correct me if this loophole thing has been killed.

    It's looking like the legislature is gearing up for a battle over pre-emption. It could get dicey.

  8. Supposedly the law is written so that Davidson county wont be able to ban them with the beer license. The guns in parks have gone through and loaded long guns are no legal to carry with a handgun permit as long as its not chambered. The Bill to close the list of names of permit holders to the public failed.

    My Gun Could Have Saved My Husband, video

    I found this related video. It's well worth watching for Tennesseans, for everyone.

    Great video thanks for posting, it should be required viewing for all lawmakers.

    Good luck to Tenn. and the new laws.

    So, it's been two weeks since the TN carry rule change went into effect. Any blood in the streets yet? (j/k)
