On Wednesday, June 3, the Tennessee General Assembly voted 69 to 27 to override Governor Bredesen’s (D) veto of House Bill 962. This NRA-supported bill would enable law-abiding right-to-carry permit holders to carry a firearm for self defense in establishments that serve alcohol, provided they don’t consume while carrying.

It is critical that you contact your State Senator immediately and ask them to override the Governor’s veto of HB 962. Remind them that 36 other states, including 7 of Tennessee’s border states, trusts their citizens to carry a firearm for self-defense in restaurants that serve alcohol, and its time that Tennessee do so as well.  Time is of the essence, so please contact them today!

    There is no reason why a good citizen should have to take off his’ handgun to go into a restraunt.If he has it concealed,why would anyone care?The only way anyone would ever be caught would be if they had a medical emergency and the paramedics would find the gun.I don’t care if someone has a gun,it’s not my buisness.I’m more concerned about police departments with machineguns and the Feds arming their personnel to the teeth.What was that Texas buffet called Lubeys? Something like that.A lot of people died obeying a stupid law.
