CCW question all Nashvillians and frequent visitors!
(For the anti crowd, it might as well be Nash-villains)
I'm going to spend a weekend in the music city, and I was wondering if I could get a heads up about nashville CCW. I looked at handgunlaws so I know the basics. Basically, no carry in schools, govt building, city parks, etc. However, the few key things I noticed is that the no gun signs carry the rule of law, and apparently it's actually a criminal offense to carry in a place that puts their own no carry sign. Also, it seems there is some language about no carry in places that serve alcohol.
My question is
1. If I want to go to a place that has live music that surely serves alcohol, do I have to leave gun in hotel?
2. What about rhymen/grand ole opry
3. Do they have lots of no gun signs in generic restaurants and stores.
4. Any other advice.
Nashville, I go a lot, but...
Ok I'm there a lot and I have the 380 with me. I pack and it has not been an issue. I have to state that if I'm out drinking with a group it's at the hotel or in the car. Bridgestone searched the wifes purse but not me and even if it's posted on their webpage it's not on the doors.
The Door issue I have question with...At the Mall there is no sign on the door but inside one door I found this posted small on the wall inside almost out of sight; number 6. http://i522.photobucket.com/albums/w...ps2553eb61.jpg
Now when it comes to the Grand Ol Opry it's posted at the street in every place you can walk into it. http://i522.photobucket.com/albums/w...psb171b6c4.jpg
Now I don't understand some places since criminals will pack theirs no matter what and honest people like me will walk back to the car. But I'm in KY and under the impression that I can pack just about anywhere and if it's posted, like the local store they can ask me to go, ask me to not come back, or ask me to take the firearm out and then come back.
