Goodman Gun and Knife Shows and TFA appeal Nashville's fairground gun show ban

News release from TFA. Posted on February 2, 2017 by JohnHarris-

Bill Goodman Gun and Knife Shows and the Tenn. Firearms Association file appeal in lawsuit challenging Nashville ban of gun shows at the Fairgrounds

The citizens of Tennessee need organizations that are willing to fight for our rights.  Organizations that are willing to fight hard and not capitulate.

The Bill Goodman Gun and Knife Shows working with the Tennessee Firearms Association is such a team of organizations.  This week, it has filed an appeal of the trial court’s rulings last summer that determined that the Plaintiffs lacked “standing” to even question whether Nashville was violating its own charter restrictions and/or state law when the Fair Board decided at the end of 2015 to ban gun shows at the Fairgrounds unless the promoters imposed restrictions on the private sale of firearms that were not required by federal or state law.  You can read the appellate brief here.

If you are a TFA member and would like to help support this effort as well as others such as the TFA’s pending litigation against the City of Knoxville relative to Chilhowee Park, please consider a supplemental member donation.

If you are not a TFA member or need to renew, please considering joining or renewing today as we continue to really fight for our rights to keep and bear arms.
