    I heard that a law was passed today that you could now carry in restaurants that serve alchohol. Does anybody know if this is true?

    It varies by state. Your home state's AG is a good source of info or try www.handgunlaw.us for information on other states.

    The bill passed out of the Judiciary Committee. It still has to be pass the full house and the senate and be signed by the Governor before it will become law. If all that happens it will go into effect July 1st.

    Well the bill has made it further than it ever has before at least.

    However considering the fit FORMER speaker Nafieh through over the bill that removed the requirement for gun dealers to take thumbprint....I'm sure he will make a big stink with this comes to the floor...but hopefully it will be just for show.

    Republicans said passing these laws was their first order of business and primary focus and they control both houses. I BELIEVE Bredesen has stated his support in the past. I am confident he will sign the bills when they get to him as he has always been progun even tho a Dimocrat.

    I just checked the site, did it pass? There was a part that said

    <TABLE class=action-table id=tabHistoryAmendments_tabHistory_gvCoActionHistory style="FONT-SIZE: 12px; WIDTH: 100%; BORDER-COLLAPSE: collapse" cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=8 rules=all border=1><TBODY><TR><TD>Comp. HB Subst (sends SB to dead bill file)</TD><TD>04/16/2009</TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE>

    Not sure if that means the bill failed or not. My license was out of KY, I moved to Nashville a few months ago. Not being able to carry in a resturant, just because they serve alcohol to other people is %^$#@*& retarded.

    The bill did pass in the Senate, however they removed the restrictions of the curfew and a age-restricted venue. So it will go back to the house to see if they will accept the changes the senate made. So not quite done yet.

    The author/sponsor of the restaurant carry bill is Senator Doug Jackson from Dickson.









    He's a Democrat.

    The bill is on the governor's desk. I don't find any credible hints which side he'll come down on but his record is pretty sensible (despite being a Democrat and a yankee).

    Restaurant Carry Bill Passes Senate, Heads to Governor's Desk!
    Please Contact the Governor Today!

    Today, the Tennessee Senate approved the General Assembly Conference Committee report of House Bill 962 by a 24-7 vote. The House passed HB 962 last week by a 66-23 vote. This report removed all arbitrary restricting amendments.

    HB962, sponsored by State Representative Curry Todd (R-95) in the House and State Senator Doug Jackson (D-25) in the Senate, would enable a person who has a valid Right-to-Carry permit to carry a firearm into restaurants where alcohol may be served, as long as the permit holder is not consuming alcohol or is not otherwise prohibited by posting provisions.

    HB962 now heads to Governor Phil Bredesen's (D) desk for his consideration.

    We would like to thank all of the NRA members who took the time to contact their State Legislators in support of this important pro-gun measure. We would also like to thank the sponsors and co-sponsors of HB962 for their continued support of this important Right-to-Carry reform bill.

    The Gov. should be smarter than Gore or at least think about his future in
    politics in Tenn, yankee or not.
    I just learned something new,didnt figure him ta be one.

    Everyone needs to at least e-mail the Gov to show support in signing
    this bill.
