    Tennessee as of 31 January 2013

    This is an old list from two weeks ago for Tennessee:


    The 2013 session of the Tennessee General Assembly is off to a good
    start with several pro-gun bills being introduced. Even though last
    session ended on a sour note, your NRA-ILA is confident that we can take
    many legislative steps this year to further protect the Second Amendment
    rights of all law-abiding Tennesseans. The following pro-gun bills have
    been introduced:

    * House Bill 6 [3], sponsored by state Representative Eric Watson
    (R-22), would allow K-12 school personnel to possess a firearm on school
    property if the person has a handgun carry permit, is authorized by the
    school superintendent, has had 40 hours of basic school policing
    training and uses frangible bullets.
    * House Bill 9 [4], sponsored by state Representative William
    Lamberth (R-44), makes all information contained in and pertaining to a
    handgun carry permit application or renewal application and the status
    of a handgun carry permit confidential and not open for public
    inspection. State Senator Ferrell Haile (R-18) has sponsored the Senate
    companion bill, Senate Bill 108 [5].
    * House Bill 10 [6], sponsored by state Representative Jeremy Faison
    (R-11), prohibits the allocation of state or local public funds to the
    regulation or enforcement of any federal law, executive order, rule or
    regulation that becomes effective on or after January 1, 2013, that
    imposes restrictions on citizens who lawfully possess or carry firearms
    in Tennessee. Senate Bill 40 [7], the companion bill, is sponsored by
    state Senator Frank Niceley (R-8).
    * House Bill 108 [8], sponsored by state Representative Sheila Butt
    (R-64), provides that a public or private employer cannot require an
    applicant for employment or an employee to disclose information about
    the ownership or storage of a firearm in the applicant or employee's
    * House Bill 118 [9], sponsored by Representative Jeremy Faison
    (R-11), allows those with a valid handgun carry permit to transport and
    store a firearm or firearm ammunition in the permit holder’s
    privately-owned motor vehicle in public or private parking areas under
    certain conditions. Lt. Governor Ron Ramsey (R-4) has filed Senate Bill
    142 [10], the companion bill to HB 118.
    * Senate Bill 76 [11], sponsored by state Senator Stacey Campfield
    (R-7), limits the number of handgun carry permit records that can be
    reproduced in a single day to fifteen.
    * Senate Bill 77 [12], also sponsored by Senator Campfield, allows
    certain persons employed by a local education agency as a faculty or
    staff member at a K-12 school to possess and carry a firearm.

    Montana has several right now

    These just passed the Judiciary Committee and go to the House floor next.

    • House Bill 240 allowing college students to bring guns on campus
      (may not pass because it contradicts a charter we have with the colleges to govern themselves)
    • Allow high school students to leave guns locked in their cars
    • Clear the way for nearly anyone to carry concealed weapons without a permit.
      (for this one the individual assumes responsibility for knowing if they qualify or disqualify under an official application)
    • HB 302 “Sheriffs first” bill says federal agents must get a sheriff’s permission before making arrests or serving warrants – or risk local kidnapping or trespassing charges.
    • HB 303 Bar police from enforcing any federal bans on assault rifles or high-capacity clips.
    • A measure allowing the use of silencers [sic] while hunting big game, and removing the potential penalty of disturbing the peace for the discharge of a firearm.
    The House is Republican controlled.

    There is also a Senate Bill to make personal information on a concealed carry permit application confidential.

    Alabama SB 129

    NRA-supported Senate Bill 129, sponsored by state Senator Scott Beason (R-17) and cosponsored by state Senators Jimmy Holley (R-31), Bill Holtzclaw (R-2), Del Marsh (R-12), and Paul Sanford (R-7)

    SB 129, omnibus firearms reform legislation, seeks to restore and protect the rights of law-abiding gun owners in Alabama by addressing the following issues:

    No employer may prohibit the otherwise lawful possession, transportation or storage of firearms or ammunition that is kept out of sight within the locked or attended private means of conveyance of an invitee who is otherwise permitted to operate or park the conveyance on the property.
    Removes the requirement to obtain a pistol permit to carry a pistol in a vehicle.
    Shifts the current “May Issue” concealed carry permitting system to a “Shall Issue” permitting system and requires that a Sheriff must issue the permit within thirty days, as long as the person applying for the permit is not prohibited by federal law.
    The permit to carry a concealed pistol shall be good for one to five years (decided on by the person seeking the permit to carry).
    States that sheriffs shall use the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) to run a background check on a concealed pistol permit applicant.
    Allows for all other valid state-issued permits to carry a concealed firearm to be recognized in Alabama. Strengthens Alabama’s current firearms preemption by giving the state legislature complete control over regulation and policy pertaining to firearms, ammunition, and firearm accessories in order to ensure that such regulation and policy is applied uniformly throughout the state.

    Ohio Senate Bill 36

    SB 36 was just introduced this week so other than being assigned to committee, nothing has or will happen for a while.

    I have heard some talks here in Idaho around one to strengthen our carry permits which would allow us to strengthen our reciprocity with other states and looking to follow suit with some other states to not follow restrictive fed laws.
