Tennessee’s Senate Bill 320 (SB320), the Medical Non-Discrimination Business and Consumer Act is now getting national attention.  

Gary Humble, the founder of Tennessee Stands, states that, “We are getting calls from groups in several states asking for help with drafting similar legislation for their respective states.” 

According to Humble, groups from Kentucky, Ohio, North Carolina and other states are now looking into ways to propose a similar bill in their states based on coverage of the bill on Conservative media outlets. 

As introduced, SB320 prohibits a person from denying an individual the full and equal enjoyment of goods, services, facilities, privileges, advantages, and accommodations of a place of public accommodation, resort, or amusement on the grounds of the wearing or use of a medical device, or whether the individual has received medical treatment. 

Senate Bill 0320 is sponsored by Senators Joe Hensley (R-Honhenwald) and Janice Bowling (R-Tullahoma) and co-sponsored by Representative Susan Lynn (R-Mount Juliet). 

The bill is strongly supported by Tennessee Stands and they helped lobby the bill in the State legislature. 

Humble states that business owners shouldn’t be forced to medically discriminate against customers. They shouldn’t have to worry about the threat of lawsuits over a disease they can’t control, nor should they have to be concerned over the threat of having their businesses “canceled” because they can’t live up to the demands. 

Humbles states, “Passing this law is a big deal.  We have abandoned laws that have been on the books for decades.  We are pretending that the ADA and HIPAA laws just don’t exist anymore.”   

“We need our legislators, here in the Volunteer State, to step up and we’re asking you, as citizens of this state, to lead.  And other states are watching. Conservatives in other states are watching what we’re going to do here,” Humble said. 

X-Files Style - The Truth Is Not Out There

Humble says the bill, “is stirring quite a bit of debate even amongst Conservatives.” 

Some have argued that the proposed bill will undercut private property rights of business owners. 

Larry Crain, Esq., from Crain Law Firm in Brentwood, TN states, “This argument is flawed for several reasons.  First, there is no constitutional right as a business owner to arbitrarily deny one class of individuals access based on their medical status, or their willingness to produce medical documentation or submit to an interrogation regarding their exemption from wearing a medical device.” 

“Secondly, the personal liberty interests of individuals to be free from unwarranted intrusion into their private, medical status outweigh the corporate interests of commercial entities which must take into account the discriminatory nature of their practices.” 

“Finally, the ownership of commercial, private property does not confer the right to coerce, intimidate, threaten or interfere with a person on the basis of their medical status or condition,” Crain says. 

“Can we all acknowledge, if we can just step outside our Covid brains for just a minute, that a year ago, or a little bit more than a year ago now, prior to Covid, we would have never imagined in the United States of American that a business could force someone to wear a mask, or to take a vaccine or a Covid test in order to receive goods and services?” Humble asked. 

There has been some confusion, by some on the definition of “places public accommodation.” 

Humble states that the bill does not affect all private property.  

“It doesn’t affect your home, in fact, it doesn’t affect every business. It affects places of public accommodation…clearly defined our American Disabilities Act.” 

Places of public accommodation include restaurants, grocery stores, movie theaters, coffee shops, amusement parks, etc. 

If you are a brick-and-mortar business owner and support the bill, let the Tennessee Legislature know by signing the letter

Or tell your legislators that you support the bill.

    So business owners won’t have to fear law site because they require masks on their premesis. How will they like law suits when claims that I or someone else contracted covid in their store because an unmasked person coughed on me. ISt’s just wrong!

      It should be your right to wear OR not wear a mask… PERIOD but to tell someone you can’t come inside if you can’t wear a mask is discrimination.
      If you are wearing a mask… that should protect you… correct?
      So I walk into a store and everyone is wearing a mask….. what’s the big deal. If you cough…. let’s hope you have enough common sense to cover your mouth… PERIOD.
      But to dictate what others can do is wrong.

    Common sense is learned/taught as we grow thru the ups and downs of our life hopefully. And it isn’t there to become atrophied. It is there to be used. We don’t need more laws to do that. If you’re sick . . . stay home . . . if you’re coughing, carry a napkin or handkerchief to cough into. If you like to wear masks or aren’t sure about your own health, wear a mask. What’s the big deal is a correct question IMO. Laws are restricting . . . common sense is freedom. Why would one even begin to think of a “lawsuit” if they catch the C19 Flu? Stuff happens!!!

    This law essentially prohibits globalist corporations operating in Tennessee from requiring patrons to have The Mark of the Beast.

    I suggest you all support it.
