If we didn’t know that there a better set of the cards on the table, we might jump for joy over this one.
Thanks to Thomas for the heads up..
House Bill 752, sponsored by state Representative Tilman Goins, would allow a person, who is granted an order of protection and who is not otherwise a prohibited person according to state or federal law, to carry a firearm for 60 days after the initial order of protection is issued. This would allow a person under an order of protection to exercise his or her right to self-defense while allowing time to complete the Tennessee handgun carry permit process. Individuals who seek out a protective order can be placed in a very dangerous situation and should be provided with the ability to protect themselves when and if necessary. This legislation could mean the difference between life and death for those individuals.
