    From the original article linked on that site:

    As amended, the legislation still wouldn't allow guns on school property, however.
    But it's a fine start. If it passes, I can carry in state parks.

    Actually, you can carry in government buildings in Virginia. There are a few restrictions such as the secured area of a police department, court houses, etc.

    Up until recently, you could carry at the state house. The legislature slipped in a "rule making" change (very quietly) that restricts carry at the state house to those of us with carry permits. We can carry there open or concealed.

    But if you have no permit, you can't carry there.

    SB 2143
    HB 2184*
    CRIMINAL LAW: Handgun permit holders allowed to carry gun in state park.
    Permits Tennessee resident who has a valid handgun carry permit to possess his or her handgun while within the boundaries of any state park. (S: Burchett; H: Niceley) House Judiciary Criminal Practice Subcommittee amendment 1 deletes the section of the code that makes it an offense to carry weapons on public parks, playgrounds, civic centers and other public recreational buildings and grounds.
    Well this makes me happy and proud.

    My wife, yes the Rollergirl, is a registered lobbyist here in TN and four other states for a Biotech Pharma company. She is a long time friend of Tim Burchett (Knoxville) from their days at UT. After me lobbying her in my own unprofessional manner that we should be able to carry in parks she took it to Tim and drafted the bill (that's what lobbyists do, they draft bills and lawmakers sponsor them).
    It would appear that the bill has gained a momentum of it's own following the VT murders. She is now busy working all her Pharma issues but is definately going to track and nudge this one up to the vote.

    Hopefully it will inspire other states.

    I went to what looks like the first meeting of the Nashville chapter of the Tennessee Firearms Assoc. John Harris was there, he is the executive director of the TFA and spoke rather well of our chances this year on getting that passed.
    Mr Harris is one of the main reasons Tennessee is getting better and better for CCW. HE actually rewrote the CCW law and helped push it through the TN House and Senate.
    "If I was an extremist, our founding fathers would all be extremists," he said. "Without them, we wouldn't have our independence. We'd be a disarmed British system of feudal subjectivity."

    I'm surprised I didnt get an email about this from the TFA but when I heard about it I was happy. I know it goes up for vote next week so how long after that are we looking at before it becomes law?

    So would this allow us to carry at fairgrounds and and ball parks?
    Our city owns a ball park that minor league plays at.

    If we can resturant carry man I'd be happier than a pig in mud.
