AN ACT to amend Tennessee Code Annotated, Section 39-11-611, relative to self-defense




Provides that a person’s use of force in self-defense is not justified if the person was engaged in conduct that would constitute a felony or Class A misdemeanor, rather than unlawful activity, at the time of the use of force.
