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.

  1. A “do not sell” list?
    With the data crowdsouced?
    .
    Right. Pretty sure this is a violation of the 6th Amendment. Last time I checked, one has to actually commit some kind of crime before they can have their rights restricted by the State. And they also have a fundamental human right to know what they are accused of, by whom, and what evidence was presented.
    .
    Won’t pass, and if it does, it will fail any legal challenge.

  2. RE: TN “Do Not Sell” list –
    .
    What’s the procedure to be removed from said “Do Not Sell” list? Is there one? (My guess: No, it’s permanent, with no recourse or appeal process in the bill.)
    .
    And what are the legal/criminal repercussions for someone who uses the system fraudulently? (My guess: None; jaded ex-spouses, former lovers, former employees, political/social/business rivals, etc., can claim to be the target and “self-report” with zero consequences.)

    1. Which is why I would only support a true red flag bill if there is a minimum of 5-year felony for falsely using it. And that includes not only the originator, but LEOs who went along with the BS without doing a proper investigation or a doctor rubberstamping the shitshow.

      1. Make it 10 years and a fine of up to $250,000 — same as 18 U.S.C. 241 and 242 — and I might be on board. 🙂
        .
        But the first question remains: How do you get off of the “list” once you’re on it, rightly (by volunteering yourself) or wrongly (via fraud, misuse, or allegations/charges that get dropped)? What’s the review and appeals process, or is there even one?

  3. Not surprising. The commies in EVERY state legislature introduce all manner of abusive unconstituional laws every session. They NEVER give up. It’s why we can never relax or assume our rights are safe. And as long as they suffer zero consequences for their traitorous behavior they will keep committing traitorous actions.

Only one rule: Don't be a dick.
