    Employed at a Tennessee Park

    If I understand correctly, someone employed at an 'alcohol-serving-establishment' may carry only provided that he has permission and blessing of the owner/operator.

    Does this apply to parks? If someone is employed by an event board and the event takes place in a park, can he carry with permission and blessing of the management?

    I do know that I have seen armed security guards at an event at a civic center (legally equivalent to a park) alongside police officers; I assume that they are registered armed security guards.

    DC, particularly TNDC, help me figure out if an employee of an event at a park can carry. Gracias.

    Well, you have read the statute, yes?
    I see no loophole for you. But then, I haven't stayed in a Holiday Inn Express in some time...

    I doubt it. I have a client that is a private school I have been given permission to carry there at all times. Doesn't matter. The law (applying to me anyway) doesn't give any exceptions on school grounds.
    I don't remember seeing any exceptions in TN parks either.

    I don't see any exception for your case either. I sorry to say I think the answer is no.

    It appears that only registered armed guards employed at Tennessee parks would be allowed to carry.
