As we deliberate the questions on gun rights vs Property rights I have posed a few questions to the AG for judiciary committee.
A little preview...
Is there a difference in the laws regarding the protections from illegal search and seizure between a vehicle and a person?
What are the property rights differences between non governmental, public property (such as a gas station parking lot) and private property (such as a house driveway or even inside of a house)? When does private property become public (as in open to increased government regulation)? Does a fenced (or walled) yard or gated driveway/parking area have any effect on the rights of the property owner be it public or private?
Can a person be required to give up any constitutional rights or protections when on private property as a condition of access to that private property? Public property? To receive a job or for access to a job? On or in their own property? On or in their own property (such as a car) if that property is on public property? Private property?
Are their any state or federal court cases, federal laws or opinions issued by the state of TN that address the question if a landlord can limit gun owner rights as a condition of renting an apartment? access to parking (for tenants or for guests) for that apartment? Could a parking lot owner "rent" or give spaces to car owners with similar restrictions? If sb3002 or a similar version passes? Could any of those cases or laws or opinions nullify this act or any part of this act?
