Upcoming Dates:

On June 15, 2017, the Tennessee Court of Appeals issued an opinion regarding the challenge by Tennessee Firearms Association and the Bill Goodman Gun and Knife Shows to the action by the Metro Fair Board to stop leasing space at the publicly owned fairgrounds in Nashville to anyone who wanted to conduct a gun show event.


The court of appeals concluded, in summary, that neither TFA nor the Goodman plaintiffs had “standing” to question whether Metro was violating the law.  This determination has shocked

many 2nd Amendment supporters and should shock other supporters of the fairgrounds because it effectively means that Metro government can ignore a public referendum that was

enacted specifically to prohibit Metro government from doing what it did shortly after Megan Barry became mayor – prohibiting activities at the fairgrounds that had previously been a

regular and extremely popular occurrence. 


The actions by Metro are believed to be the basis for a change in state law that just went into effect in June 2017 which now expressly provides that individuals and entities, such as TFA

and Goodman, would have “standing” as a matter of law to challenge violations of the state pre-emption act.  That state law also now provides that if a successful challenge is made

that the local government entity could be required to pay the plaintiff’s attorneys fees which could cost local governments significant amounts if they intentionally or otherwise

violate the state pre-emption laws regarding firearms.


The decision of the court of appeals may be challenged by asking the Tennessee Supreme Court to consider the matter.  Until further notice, we will be holding our Gun Shows

at the Wilson County Expo Center in Lebanon, TN as we consider appealing to the TN Supreme Court.
