This week in Tennessee, Representative Jody Barrett, a Republican from Dickson, introduced a bill known as HB 2032. The proposed legislation aims to permit individuals holding specific licenses to carry firearms within businesses that currently prohibit or restrict such possession. If passed, the bill would eliminate offenses related to possessing weapons in establishments that have restrictions, granting individuals with an enhanced handgun carry permit the ability to carry their firearms inside such premises.
Proposed: Firearms and Ammunition - As introduced, removes the offense of possessing a weapon in a building that prohibits or restricts weapons; allows a person with an enhanced handgun carry permit to carry a handgun into a business that prohibits or restricts weapons; removes penalties for violations of certain firearms provisions. - Amends TCA Title 39, Chapter 17, Part 13.
