Tennessee and Firearms Concealed Carry Confidentiality

Tennessee --(AmmoLand.com)- Every gun owner, and particularly concealed carry permit holders, take note!!!! States in which lists of concealed carry holders have been published – particularly in my home state, here in TENNESSEE – take note!!!!

Probably most of us know about THE COMMERCIAL APPEAL, newspaper in MEMPHIS, TENNESSEE, publishing a list of all of the concealed carry permit holders in the state. A stink was raised. The Tennessee state legislature produced a bill to stop this. Recently, I sent out an article from the CA about the fight in the state over allowing lawful carry in county and city parks. I pointed out how the CA was still promoting their publication of the list and how it was still available.

I did not know, until I read the article Concealed Carry Confidentiality Across the Fruited Plain, that the House of Representatives of Tennessee passed the bill (83-12), but the Tennessee Senate rejected Senate Bill 1126 by a 14-13 vote!!!!

I know some Tennessee state senators, and I know that some people getting this email from me know some Tennessee state senators. I hope that you will join me in making those 13 miscreant senators wish that there were 13 thousand of them – to help diffuse the wrath!!!!

Ask yourself – why would anybody do that? Well, you might ask why the Commercial Appeal did it in the first place. As you will read in the link above, the Arkansas Times thought that the CA’s publication of the list was “cool” and acted like a copy cat. The Arkansas state senate, like Tennessee, apparently has a few knuckleheads in it, too, so they and the governor who is ostensibly (but weakly) pro-gun, need an attitude readjustment.

Virginia got it right. A list was published and the citizens were so outraged that they rose up and bit the publication in the ass.

Gun owners take action!
