STATUS – Referred to the Senate Judiciary Committee on 01-16, where it will need to pass by majority vote.
YOUR ACTION IS NEEDED NOW. It doesn’t matter where Tennessee you live, take these actions today.
1. Call the Committee Chair, Brian Kelsey. Strongly, but respectfully urge him to move this important bipartisan bill forward to a vote in his committee. A phone call has 10x the impact of an email.
2. Call the rest of the committee members. Again, be strong, but respectful. Urge each of them to take action to move the bill forward and vote YES on SB1607. If they do not commit to a YES vote, ask them why. If they’re undecided, let them know you’ll call back in a few days.

5. Write a letter to the editor Look up your local newspaper and submit a letter to the editor voicing your support for SB1607. It’s essential that Tennessee no longer help but actively oppose the federal government’s attacks on the Second Amendment. Passing SB1607 will start that process.
