HUGE! This State Just Gave Obama’s Gun Free Zones The Middle Finger With EPIC Pro-Gun Ruling!

Carrying a firearm is a personal choice. I carry one, but I urge everyone to consider whether they are equipped to handle the responsibility that comes with it. It’s a useful tool – but it can be a liability if one is unprepared to use it in a life or death situation. One state, however, has made it clear that while businesses may ban the lawful carrying of concealed weapons on their property, they now must do so understanding that their prohibitions may incur injury or death to people disarmed by the policy and that such policies may leave them vulnerable to lawsuits.


From The Federalist Papers:

In one of the most awesome pro-gun laws to come down the pike, Tennessee is blaming business owners if they disarm citizens with “gun-free zones.”

If those citizens get injured because they were stripped of their Second Amendment rights, the new law – which goes into effect Friday – allows gun owners to sue the person who set up the “gun free zone.”

Bearing Arms puts it in layman’s terms: Any permit holder injured as a result of being stripped of their right to self-defense, and their handgun, in a posted gun-free zone can file a lawsuit within two years of the event as long as they meet the following requirements:

  • were authorized to carry a gun at the time of the incident
  • prohibited from carrying a firearm because of a gun-free sign
  • the property owner was not required to be posted by state or federal law and posted by choice

So if a grocery store in Tennessee banned guns on its property and a robber, or a bear, or a rabid mongoose barged in and killed or injured someone who has a carry permit but were prohibited from carrying his or her gun, they could sue the grocery store owner for damages.

“It is the intent of this section to balance the right of a handgun carry permit holder to carry a firearm in order to exercise the right of self-defense and the ability of a property owner or entity in charge of the property to exercise control over governmental or private property,” the bill states.

The legislation places responsibility on the business or property owner of the gun-free area to protect the gun owner from any incidents that occur with any “invitees,” trespassers and employees found on the property, as well as vicious and wild animals and “defensible man-made and natural hazards.”

This is a great idea and other states should adopt a similar law. If you’re going to disarm Americans, then you bear responsibility for what happens to them.

This is a tremendous victory for those of us who understand that our Second Amendment rights do not stop at our front door!

Businesses should be free to craft policy. But if that policy endangers patrons, they should be willing to front the bill for injuries incurred.
