As it stands now, local governments can ban firearms at sporting events, playgrounds and parks. This measure, sponsored by Republican Representative Mike Harrison of Rogersville, would change that.

Tennessee Law requires the current vaccination against rabies of any dog or cat 6 months of age or older, and that all rabies vaccinations shall only be given by or under the supervision of a veterinarian.
Today, AAA announced strong opposition to bills that would substantially weaken Tennessee’s motorcycle helmet law. The proposed bill would allow riders 21 years and older, and not insured with TennCare, to ride without a helmet. Tennessee’s current law requires all motorcyclists to wear a helmet, regardless of age or experience of the rider. In October, AAA surveyed Tennessee voters and 91 percent of respondents favored keeping the state’s motorcycle helmet law in its current form. In states that repealed or weakened their universal helmet laws, helmet use declined sharply and deaths and injury rose.
