    Tennessee Travel Question

    I am new here and have looked for the answer in the sites and can not find a sutible answer. I am going to Gatlinburg in June, I cant find the laws on how I can carry my handgun while I am in the car. I live in Ohio and know we have reciprocity. We can carry in console here and I do when we travel. But I cant find anything on what is legal while inside a car. Thanks in advance.

    Doesn't matter how you carry in the car if you have a license. Just make sure it would be considered in your possession (center console fine, I wouldnt suggested having it loaded somewhere that is significantly closer to someone who doesnt have a license than it is to you)
    A few other notes about being here though:
    1) you are not required to inform a LEO, but it will show up when they run ur license, so i generally do
    2) remember no carrying in any restaurant that serves alcohol yet. hopefully that will soon be changed
    3) no carrying in places that are posted. a lot of places in gatlinburg are. I know the aquarium is for sure, but be sure to check it out. best aquarium iv ever seen
