    Question for Tennesse folks

    Hello everyone not quite sure if this is the right place or not for this question. I'm a Mississippi resident with concealed carry permit ( not the enhanced) my wife and I will be heading to Nashville for a few days next week and I got some questions for you good Tn folks. Been looking at handgun laws.com and I know Tn honors Ms permits. Does the sign carry force of law? It appears is does but wanna make sure. Apparently you don't have to inform officer either. Any advice would be appreciated my first time carrying out of state. Thanks for any help.

    I looked there but couldn't tell if the rules were any different for Tn permit holders compared to out of state holders. I have a hard time understanding the lawyer wording lol

    Ok I read it slower this time and apparently the sign does carry the force of law.

    Yes, they rather idiotically do carry weight of law.

    Unfortunately, in the legislature, having those signs start to carry the force of law (and they definitely do) was the price of the zero-cost fiscal note which made passage of several favorable refinements to our existing laws possible. They were made to carry the force of law so that no funds were necessary to upgrade several local government buildings. I don't agree with it, but there it is.

    As noted they do carry force of law. Also any no gun sign works; official signage, no guns in crayon or the red circle and slash over a firearm. Be careful as they are often stuck in a corner of the door or window. You are not required to notify law enforcement, but not a bad idea to do it anyway.

    When you're in TN (or any other state that honors your permit) you are bound by the laws of that state, not the laws of MS. When I travel, I print out the info for each state I'll be traveling through and put it in a 3 ring binder for quick reference.

    That's a very good idea I may do that myself
