Tennessee to make federal gun control enforcement a felony

Bill: SB0250/HB0248 (PDF)

Sponsored by Sen. Beavers and Rep. Butt, SB0250/HB0248 states, “The general assembly declares that any federal action prohibited by this chapter relating to firearms, firearms accessories or ammunition, whether made in Tennessee or not, is not authorized by the United States constitution and violates the restrictions contained therein and is hereby declared to be invalid in this state; that said federal action shall not be recognized by this state; and that said federal action is rejected by this state and shall be null and void and of no effect in this state…It is an offense for any person to knowingly enforce or attempt to enforce any federal action prohibited by this chapter relating to a state government, local government or civilian owned firearm, firearm accessory or ammunition. Any person who violates this section commits a Class B felony.” As introduced, SB0250 expands and amends the Tennessee Firearms Freedom Act of 2009 to address federal actions in this state (Amends TCA Title 4, Chapter 54).
