Tennessee Constitutional Carry

A major win to the preservation and expansion of the rights
of firearm’s owners passed the Tennessee General Assembly on May 29th. Now if
you remember, I have written about the possibility of “Constitutional Carry”
being on the table in Tennessee had brought about mixed emotions from both
sides of the political spectrum. Many individuals believed that this would be
beneficial to the freedoms of the people, while others believed that this would
be detrimental for the State. Constitutional Carry has been a topic of debate
for many States.

Tennessee has now passed the
bill in the House of Reps with a vote of “64-29.” This would allow for
individuals starting on, “July 1, for people 21 and over to carry both open and
concealed, and for military members ages 18-20.” This law will not apply to
long guns. Following this, a statement from the House Majority Leader William
Lamberth (R-Portland), “This bill is not the end of the journey,” and “This is
a massive step forward for freedom.” I find this to be exactly what we need as
a country in order to preserve the Constitution.

There is an inevitability that we as Americans know when it
comes to firearms laws and regulations. Firearms have always been the cause for
debate and have been targeted by groups and politicians for many years now. The
ability to enforce insane regulations that would make law abiding citizens
criminals and flat out ban firearms has always been the goal. States such as
Tennessee passing such laws furthering the progression of freedom is the answer
to combating the coming storm that is tyranny. Linked in the bottom is the full
article that gives more information on the bill.
