TN: Fake “gun rights” bill fails in senate committee

Source: The Tennessean

“The Tennessee Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday narrowly blocked a controversial proposal that would have allowed concealed carry permit holders to bring guns into businesses without the property owners’ consent. Senate Bill 2180, backed by Sen. Joey Hensley, R-Hohenwald, aimed to exempt concealed carry or enhanced-handgun carry permit holders from current Tennessee criminal code that makes ‘possessing a firearm in a concealed manner’ illegal if the business owner has posted signage prohibiting weapons on the property.” (03/27/24)
