Bill Would Prevent Federal Government from Regulating Firearms in TN


www.wztv.com

Now, lawmakers have proposed a new bill called the Tennessee Firearms Freedom Act.

It basically exempts guns made and sold in Tennessee from federal regulation, because they never cross the state line.

"If these firearms are meant to be used just here in Tennessee, they're not properly regulated by the federal government because they are not in interstate commerce," says Rep. Fincher.

Part of me is excited about this, as here we have ANOTHER state stepping up and challenging big brother, saying enough is enough...Which again sets the showdown between the gun-grabbing goons and the state.

But the other part of me recognizes that this only applies to the state of TN, meaning that you cannot move from state to state with said firearm...

But then again, if these pioneer states lead the charge and more states follow suit, this may soon become a widespread message to TPTB---Leave our guns alone.

I don't know,it seems that people buy guns at gun shows and don't have the federal back ground check. They are legal if they aren't felons,to take them with them when they move.
I hope Tennessee votes this in and the Governor signs it int law.

Montana just passed a law like this too. Although I'm not a gun owner and probably never will be but I find this quite exciting. It is a way for a state to exempt itself from federal regulation from something that happens only within that state.

If a state can do this, then what other things might be possible? States might actually have rights!
