State Senate Passes Tennessee Firearms Freedom Act
Written by Gun Owners of America Published: 04 June 2009
Here is something that should get the attention of federal legislators (but probably won’t).
The Tennessee legislature this week passed a measure that exempts from federal law any firearms and/or ammunition made within the state, that stays in the state, and is stamped “made in Tennessee.” State law still applies to such firearms.
This bill, which has now passed both the house and senate and is headed to the governors desk, is similar to a law enacted recently in Montana.
The bill’s sponsor, Senator Mae Beavers, said that “Our founders fought too hard to ensure states’ sovereignty and I am sick and tired of activist federal officials and judges sticking their noses where they don’t belong.”
