When: March 10th, 9 a.m.-2 .p.m.

“Currently, Tennesseans must ask the government for permission before carrying a handgun for self-defense,” said Matthew Patterson, Director of State and Local Affairs for GOA. “No other Constitutionally-protected right is regulated to this degree, and that’s why Constitutional Carry is so important. It restores the right to self-defense, free of government overreach.”

“Lobby Day is an important opportunity for Tennessee gun owners to personally engage with their legislators and make a difference for this legislation,” Patterson continued. “GOA is also proud to partner with our friends at the TFA in hosting this event, and we look forward to working with them in activating gun owners and pushing Constitutional Carry this session.”

Gun Owners of America is a nonprofit, grassroots lobbying organization dedicated to protecting the right to keep and bear arms without compromise. GOA represents over two million members and activists. For more information, visit GOA’s Press Center.
