I am way behind with what is being “offered” in our legislature in terms of Gun Legislation and so far, it is not good news.
Let’s begin with SB 1927 by Senator Raumesh Akbari (D):
As introduced, permits the largest municipality in Shelby, Davidson, Knox, or Hamilton county to regulate the manner of storage of firearms, firearm ammunition, and firearm accessories by ordinance, resolution, policy, rule, or other enactment. –
In other words, it is the elimination of State Preemption of gun laws. You know they will go draconian and demand guns to be locked and disassembled before being put inside a double combination safe or some stupid stuff like that or demanding that you could only have 50 rounds of ammunition stashed in a vault at a local gun club or gun store. And yes, this would run head on against Heller, but that will take time and money and the antis get to claim victory.
Next is SB 1966 by Senator Jeff Yarbro (D):
As introduced, creates the Tennessee Do Not Sell List; requires the Tennessee bureau of investigation to develop and launch a secure internet-based platform to allow any person in the United States to register to add the person’s own name to the Tennessee Do Not Sell List by January 1, 2025
I have read a bit about individuals with personal issues willingly depositing their firearms with a trusted third party and even volunteering the state to have their names added to a no-sell list and I have no initial issues with it. But a website to add names to a No Sell list? The probability of being misused by activists or pissed off spouses or anybody with a grudge against somebody is just too big. And that is truly the goal here: Not to save lives but to make it miserable for the common folk.
More to come.
