Tennessee: Governor Signs Hunter Protection Bill; Senate and House to Consider Pro-Gun Legislation

On April 4, Governor Bill Haslam (R) signed Senate Bill 1777 into law.  Supported by the NRA, SB 1777 would amend Tennessee’s current hunter harassment laws by prohibiting anti-hunting radicals from using drones to interfere with those lawfully hunting or fishing.  Sponsored by state Senator Mike Bell (R-9) and state Representative Judd Matheny (R-47), SB 1777 protects the rights and safety of hunters while afield.  The use of drones by anti-hunting extremists, with the expressed intention of spooking wildlife or catching a hunter off-guard, is extremely dangerous and could potentially result in injury.  This law will take effect on July 1, 2014.
