From Stephen Clements of Caffeinated Conservatives:
A bill passed the TN Senate that allows for anybody legally able to own a firearm to openly carry one WITHOUT A PERMIT. Why is this important? Because since the right to keep and bear arms is fundamental, making the only way for you to do that is to pay the State a fee makes it a privilege, taking away your right. SO IF YOU LOVE YOUR RIGHTS, please contact the members of the TN House Finance Committee and ask that they vote for HB2409.
All of their emails are listed below, so copy and paste them all into your "To" box, type "Please pass HB2409. Thank you.", and you've done your part to fight for our rights!
HB2409 has already passed through two House committees, so please keep the Finance Committee from killing it! Defend our rights! I know it's hard to tell that I'm excited through an email, but this is AWESOME!
