Metal Detector Bill Passes House
AP Thursday May 4, 2017

The Tennessee House has passed a bill to make cities and counties choose between buying metal detectors, hiring security guards and checking bags at many public facilities, or letting handgun permit holders bring in their guns.
The bill passed the House 70-24 on Wednesday. The Senate could vote on it soon.
Gun control advocates and some cities think the bill would burden local officials with bad choices. The legislation also expands protections for gun-rights groups to sue on behalf of individuals who feel slighted by local gun restrictions.
Lawmakers voted down several amendments. One would have reduced the eligibility for triple attorney's fees awards included in the bill. Another would have exempted transit facilities from the added security requirements.
Gov. Bill Haslam's office says he's deferred to the legislature's will on the bill.

 


Legislators Pass Sexting Law
AP Thursday May 4, 2017

The Tennessee Legislature has passed a bill that would allow minors who send sexually explicit photos of themselves to others to face far less serious consequences than they do now.
Under current law, juveniles who email or text explicit photos can be charged with sexual exploitation of a minor, even if the pictures are consensual.
Under the measure, minors could be charged with an unruly offense in juvenile court.
The House passed the measure last week. It passed in the Senate Wednesday by a vote of 26-2.
The bill was sponsored by Sen. Jack Johnson, a Republican from Franklin.
