    Tennessee Legislature Overrides Governor's Veto: This week, in a strong reaffirmation of the self-defense rights of Tennesseans, the Tennessee House and Senate successfully overrode Governor Phil Bredesen's (D) veto of House Bill 962. This NRA-supported bill will enable law-abiding Right-to-Carry permit holders to carry firearms for self-defense in restaurants that serve alcohol, provided the permit holder is not consuming alcohol. HB 962 passed both the House and Senate with broad bipartisan support, but Gov. Bredesen vetoed the bill on May 28, disappointing more than 200,000 Right-to-Carry permit holders in his state. While an override of the veto needed only a simple majority vote to pass, it cleared both chambers with overwhelming, bi-partisan support. Passage of the measure will allow law-abiding Tennesseans to protect themselves and their families. This measure was overridden in the House on Wednesday by a margin of 69-27, and in the Senate on Thursday by a margin of 21-9.
