Monday, June 2nd, 2014

A gun locking device.

The Tennessee General Assembly recently enacted a bill that will make machines used to make certain gun locking devices "industrial machinery." This law will take effect July 1, 2014.

Tennessee exempts sales of industrial machinery. "Industrial machinery" generally means machinery and equipment that is necessary to, and primarily for, fabricating or processing tangible personal property for resale and consumption off the premises. It also includes certain specific kinds of machinery. The new law adds to the list of specific kinds of machinery.

"Industrial machinery" will include machinery used in the design and manufacture of firearms equipped with certain locking devices. The devices must permit a user to program the firearm to operate only for specified persons designated by the user. The device must work through (1) computerized locking devices or (2) other means integral to and permanently part of the firearm.
