NRA – ILA

Charlotte, NC --(Ammoland.com)-  The School Security Act, House Bill 6, was signed into law by Governor Bill Haslam (R) on May 13.  Sponsored by state Representative Eric Watson (R-22), HB 6 provides more protection for children and staff during school hours.

HB 6 was amended multiple times during this legislative session and was finally agreed upon by the Tennessee House and Senate to allow a person employed or assigned to a Local Education Agency to possess and carry a firearm on the grounds of that school if they are current or former law enforcement.

This individual would also be required to have a handgun carry permit (HCP) and the written authorization of the director of schools.  This law will take effect on July 1, 2013.

Thank you to Representative Watson, all state legislators who voted for this important reform and Governor Haslam for supporting the protection of our schools and children with this law.

    1. Utah has the best law. ANYONE with a Utah CPF can carry at any public school, (K-college) with no special permission needed. That means on any given day, at any given school, there are probably some teachers, staff, administrators, and parents who can defend the students. Utah has had this law for years and has had no problems and NO school shootings that I’m aware of.

      would be a better bill if they didn’t have to be former or current police.

    3. Why just current or former LEOs? What about current or former US Military? What about the rest of us who can normally out shoot the LEOs in any form of shooting competition? This is a useless and misguided piece of shoot.
