HOUSE BILL 3245
By LARRY J. MILLER
D - Memphis
SENATE BILL 3395
By REGINALD TATE D - Memphis
AN ACT to amend Tennessee Code Annotated, Title 39, Chapter 17, Part 13,
to enact the “Ammunition Accountability Act”.
Friday, February 01, 2008
On Thursday, January 17, legislation was filed in both the Tennessee House and Senate that would requires all handgun ammunition manufactured or sold in Tennessee to be coded with a serial number, and entered into a statewide database at the time of sale. Encoded ammunition would be registered to the purchaser and would include the date of transaction, the purchaser’s name, date of birth, driver’s license number, and the serial number of the ammunition.
SB3395, sponsored by State Senator Reginald Tate (District 33) and HB3245, sponsored by State Representative Larry Miller (District 88) pose a serious threat to our Right to Keep and Bear Arms and need to be stopped immediately.
