    Spoke to my Representative and Lt Governor's Office.
    After the vitit by Memphis and Shelby County Liberal Officials, and Bloomberg's People I understand, to the Legislature and the Governor, the Governor said that Constitutional Carry was no longer a priority, while dealing with the Coronavirus, or total BS!
    The State Safety Director our Governor's former Sheriff has always been opposed to Constitutional Carry as has the Governor. His opposition and the Candidate Tennesseans wanted for Corporate Governor dropped out of the race because she could not compete with his billions!
    Lt Governors Office the Senate is working toward adjournment next week and Constitutional Carry has been taken off or was not put on the calendar. I don't remember which.'
    There will be no vote on Constitutional Carry.

    27May2020 WATE headline
    TENNESSEE (WATE) — A controversial bill that seeks to allow some Tennesseans to carry a handgun without a permit advanced in the State House this week.

    A House Judiciary Committee passed the measure Tuesday, introduced by Gov. Bill Lee earlier this year.

    If passed by the General Assembly and signed by the governor, the legislation would allow Tennessee residents 21 and older to carry a handgun without a permit.

    tinbucket, forgive the confusion factor but local news cites above, rave about but lack a specific bill number.
    research shows they have stated hb 2817 is the bill to watch. yet the abstract text states, quote
    Criminal Procedure - As introduced, extends from 30 days to 45 days the time within which the issuing judge is required to report to the attorney general following the expiration, extension, or denial of an order authorizing a wire, oral, or electronic interception. - Amends TCA Section 10-7-504; Title 33; Title 36, Chapter 3, Part 6; Title 37; Title 38; Title 39; Title 40; Title 41; Title 49; Title 50; Title 55; Title 70 and Title 71. unquote.

    absolutely nothing about modifying TN conceal carry

    The Bill HB28117 is scheduled for 06/03/2020 House Fiance Ways and Means Committee.in the Senate SB2671 it's companion was deferred on /3/17/2020 in the Senate Fiance, Means and Ways Committee. Not goign anywhere until they bring it back up for vote in committee. I don't see it on the calendar in the Senate afterwards. I didn't count co-sponsors but seems to have more in the House but only 8 in the Senate and my Senator not one of them

    I hope Tennesse ever gets permitless carry. There is no such thing as constitutional carry anywhere in the U.S.

    Dont see that happening in Tenn in my lifetime though .

    Most people that carry in Memphis don't have a permit. Probably half of them are convicted felons. They carry them side ways guns.

    Truthfully they shouldnt need any permit, and if the felons, were released they have a constitutional right to be armed.
    Unconstitutional laws,and acts of gov of course attempt to remove that right , but extremely ineffectively.

    Have the combined populations of Knoxville, Memphis and Nashville exceeded 50% of the state yet? That is when the chameleon will change colors.

    "We'll breed them out" 21st century version.

    The Federal legislature is still 7-2 Republican/democrat in the House, and both senators are Republican.

    At the state level, last l looked it were 73-22 in the Assembly. I'd have to dive in to see about the state Senate.

    The big metropolitan areas always run the state. It’s that way on the “Left Coast” and I can honestly say that there is nothing short of a rebellion that’s going to change it.

    I tried to reply to a notification from someone here but I just got the message undeliverable. The server was refusing to connect to my server.
    I got an email form the Lt Governor McNally yesterday saying that the Constitutional Carry Legislation would not be brought up this session and to continue advocacy in January. In essence he and the Governor won't let it be brought up. He, the Seante Leadership wants to end the session sine die next week with hundreds of bills not going to be acted on. The House is shooting for ending the session on June 15th....and the Several good Constitutional Carry Bills are still on the calendar or some o f them anyway. Go to Tn Firearms Association and to news for the several different and good Constitutional Carry Bills. The only way they could stop one of them at least from being brought to the floor was to end the session early! For 9 years now, first Gov Haslam got his allies in the Senate Committees to kill Constitutional Carry and now Governor Lee and his Liberal State Safety Director and Lt Governor are doing the same thing in the Senate. The Governor's "a Constitutional Carry Legislation" is not Constitutional Carry but the several other Bills are. A conference to get the Senate to consider the Bills..maybe. My Senator say they are going to work on the Senate Leadership to stay in session and bring up the several Constitutional Bills, all are good..I tied to get pieces in several newspapers around the state but only some mild stuff about the session ending and no advocacy have I seen.
    Haslam lied to us Country Bumpinks to get elected and so did Gov Lee. He introduced with great fanfare his "a Constitutional Carry" Legislation which was just another crime bill with more sever punishments. Our Republican Party Leadership..in Tennessee truly thinks that we Country Bumpkins will vote and we did on any lie they think they need to tell to get elected.
    Mae Beaver a True Conservative and the one every Tennessean wanted dropped out of he race as she said she "could not raise money to compete with the billions of Businessman Bill Lee."
    On edit just received email from my State Senator. We agree that it is the intent of the Lt Governor and Governor to not let Constitutional Carry be brought up...at all.
