Get out the ol' pen and paper, or if your state Senator and state Rep are email savvy, fire 'em off. This is pure BS.

Tennessee Department of Safety (TDOS) Implements De Facto Gun Registration Scheme!

Thursday, December 18, 2008

Please Stand-Up and Make Your Voices Heard!

The Tennessee Department of Safety (TDOS) is currently sending letters to all firearms instructors requiring them to complete and return a copy of a Handgun Safety School Class Roster within 24 hours of the completion of a handgun permit certification class, “effective immediately.”


This new roster requires a student to provide information concerning the name of the firearm owner, the name of the student using the firearm, as well as the make, model, and serial number of firearms used. Currently, there are no statutes that authorize the TDOS to collect or require this information. Simply put, this is a backdoor, de facto gun registration scheme! Remember, registration is the first step to potential firearms confiscations.


To view a version of the roster form, please click here.


It is imperative that Tennessee’s law abiding gun owners stand-up and voice their opposition to this gun registration plot. Please contact the Tennessee Department of Safety and your State Legislators TODAY and respectfully let them know that you oppose the need and use of these rosters. The Tennessee Department of Safety can be reached by phone at (615) 251-5166. To find contact information for your State Legislators, please click here.
Note, links won't work in above quote, go to the link above to use their forms. Better to do your own however.

Here we go again!

Tennessee is where it all began. They were the first state to enact their own gun control laws in 1869 just after the Civil War. It was an attempt to disarm those newly freed slaves. The KKK was in charge and they didn't want no n------ having guns...

Well, the wheels are turning fast. I just received an email from my state rep explaining that TDOS is issuing retraction letters to the instructors regarding the need for s/n's....no big deal there as most classes require first time students to use the firearms provided by the class. Only the type/make and caliber are listed on the roster sheets required for turn-in. These are for audit purposes against actual certificate issues to track down counterfeits. Looks like a big "WHOA"....OOPs on the part of TDOS.. and got caught with their pants down around their ankles....:)
