A bill that would have made confidential handgun permit information died in the Tennessee House. As a result, names and addresses of permit holders will remain public. The vote was not without some political intrigue, including a hasty committee vote to support a records exemption for handgun records after two opponents left the room. Then the House speaker and the chamber’s newest member showed up, called for a new vote and defeated the exemption. (4/3/08)
