    Memphis, Tn - Sunday on Beale it was fun in the sun. Where the drinks flow and the where the food comes either dry or wet.

    But this weekend visitors are noticing new signs on this famous street. Tourist Joe Bazan says, "It should be up to the business owner to decide which way they wana run with that."

    In place across the state a new law which allows those with carry permits to bring their firearms into restaurants that serve alcohol.

    Visitor Larry Magurre disagrees with the law, "Bad things can happen when there are guns around."

    On Beale, the signs say it all: “Firearms are Prohibited.”

    This weekend was the first weekend security and regulations were in place to enforce a new mandate banning guns on Beale.
    Executive Director of the Beale Street Merchants Association Onzie Horne says the security checks were in place and each night went off without a hitch, "The crowds that came to the street were happy that we instituted these measures and they were patient with us as we learn the process."

    Horne adds that while the lines to enter the famous street were long the security checks will gain speed and the delays some saw will soon disappear.

    Horne says "As our security gets better at that as we adjust the compliment as well as is our patrons become more accustomed to it, it will pick up and get faster."

    But there are those who disagree with the new regulations on this old street. Larry Tanner says, "I think if you have a permit to conceal carry that shouldn't be allowed I believe in the 2nd amendment the right to bear arms."

    Supporting the restaurant carry law they say it should be up to the patron - not the business.

    Tanner says, "Were carrying legally you think that's gonna stop folks that don't have a concealed carry anyway from bringing a gun on Beale I don't think so."

    Is beale street private property? Or did memphis city government make a Park? If it's a city street how can a merchant group set up a security check point? And if the security check point is not maned by LE can you just walk around it? It all hinges on: "is it private property!

    No problem, I'll just treat Memphis like Illinois and spend my money elsewhere.

    Yes they are. Restaurant carry just went into effect on July 14th and there is a clause for restaurants to be able to post their establishments.
