Our Domestic Violence Offender Notification law was signed today in a ceremony at War Memorial with Governor Haslam & members of AWAKE!
The bill (SB 229/HB 1112) will officially become law on July 1 in Tennessee. It requires those convicted of a misdemeanor domestic violence offense to sign a dispossession form acknowledging they are aware they cannot own or possess a firearm under both Tennessee and federal law. This marks the 6th bill written by, lobbied for, and passed by AWAKE. Be sure to look for more information about our victory party on July 27th! Thank you so much to all who lobbied to pass this bill!
