Still begs the question, if the 15 year old was selling the gun, obviously that isn't a legal purchase so is the gun stolen? If so, why isn't the 18 year old being charged with trying to buy stolen property? Something fishy is going on here if you ask me.
    I definitely agree with you Mike, I'd like to know the whole story behind it as well. Makes me wonder if maybe the 18 year old shooter was able to supply some really useful information that the DA needed in another high profile case. You know, the old you drop all charges and I'll spill my guts to you.

    In this case, the prosecutor made a judgment call on the side of the alleged defender, even though there still remained some unanswered questions.

    For us good guys, that is a good thing. But the shooter, seems to be on very thin ice as to whether he was legally possessing the firearm.

    However, you can't count on that happening in other jurisdictions with other prosecutors.

    I'm glad it turned out the way it did.

    That is not correct. You must poses a valid Tennessee Handgun Carry Permit to carry either openly or concealed. Tennessee is an open carry state, and honestly in some parts of the state is is quite common, but you still have to have the permit to do it.

    I had heard that there was a bill being introduced in the state legislature that would make "constitutional carry" legal in Tennessee, in other words, if you are a resident of Tennessee you wouldn't need a permit to carry at all. I do not know what the outcome of that bill is though.
