States Honoring Tennessee Pistol Permit (39)
Tennessee Pistol Permit News
(Apr. 24, 2015) Governor signs bill allowing guns in all parks: Republican Gov. Bill Haslam signed legislation preventing local governments in TN from barring people with handgun carry permits from taking firearms to playgrounds, sports fields, and parks. Some say the final version is still confusing due to a provision banning guns "within the immediate vicinity" of school activities, but not defining a specific distance.
(July 1, 2014) New law allows gun owners to keep loaded firearms in vehicle: Gun owners may now legally keep loaded firearms in their vehicles even if they don't have a state-issued handgun carry permit. People who are legally able to possess a gun under state and federal law can keep a loaded handgun, shotgun or rifle in a car or truck they legally possess. The new law does not allow those without permits to carry loaded firearms outside their vehicle on streets or in businesses as permit holders can do.
