Tennessee State Preemption - Cities Continue Their Violations © 2016 by Phillip Evans

I just now emailed this to three key Tennessee General Assembly lawmakers:
Dear Tennessee Lawmakers and Sponsors of "Guns in Parks" bill.
First of all, thank you so very much for honoring our Second Amendment Rights and introducing this bill and helping to get it passed!
Now, there is the related issue of cities such as Nashville and Knoxville continuing to thumb their noses at state law. They continue to prohibit licensed citizens from entering certain public properties such as parks and the buildings that are part of them, while lawfully armed.
Would you please introduce a bill that gives real teeth to state preemption so that officials will be subject to civil fines for violating the preemption law?
Or a bill that adds additional language to the weapons code that specifically states that citizens have immunity from prosecution with regard to any city law, rule, ordinance, or resolution that bans weapons at any public place which is not off-limits under state law, and that they may not be denied entrance or ejected from said property merely for being lawfully armed under state law.
Tennesseans should not have to wait for years while this drags through the courts. It can be easily fixed this year.
Please let 2016 be a historic year for liberty as you quell the arrogance of local officials who continue to infringe on the rights of free citizens to defend themselves from criminals where they are legal to do so under state law.
Please defend the honor of the great state of Tennessee from lawless tyrants in local government.
Thank you and God bless you!
