Bill to do away with Tennessee helmet requirement shelved
AP Wednesday April 15, 2015

A proposal to do away with Tennessee's motorcycle helmet requirement has been shelved for the year. The bill sponsored by Republican Rep. Jay Reedy of Erin was deferred on Tuesday until the first calendar of next year's legislative session. Under the proposal, motorcycle riders at least 21 years old carrying private health insurance would be able to decide if they want to wear a helmet. The Tennessee Highway Patrol opposes the bill because it wouldn't allow troopers to verify the age and insurance status of motorcyclists. About 167,000 motorcycles are registered in Tennessee.

 


Lawyers: AG opinion bars felons from having antique guns
AP Wednesday April 15, 2015

The Tennessee attorney general's office appears to have changed its position on whether felons and those convicted of domestic violence can legally possess antique guns. A 2008 opinion issued by then-Attorney General Robert Cooper said felons could lawfully possess the older weapons. However, state law has changed. The latest opinion by Attorney General Herbert Slatery says violent felony and drug felony offenders cannot possess the antiquated guns using muzzle loaders and black powder, even if they are hunting. But legal experts say the opinion is confusing and appears to limit all felons from using the older guns. The opinion was in response to questions posed by Mt. Juliet Republican Sen. Mae Beavers. Beavers asked what weapons felons could use to hunt.
