Man Arrested After He Tries To Bring Gun Into McKenzie Arena
posted September 22, 2008
A man was arrested after he tried to bring a gun into the Homecoming Step Show at UTC on Saturday night.
Clifford Jamar Billups, 29, of 302 Wygoda Circle, was charged with carrying a weapon on school property and theft.
A security officer said Billups tried to get in Gate 1 by saying he was an armed security guard with a gun in his book bag.
He was placed in custody and his firearm was found to be stolen, police said.
Authorities said Billups has a gun carry permit, but not an armed security license.
He is due to appear in General Sessions Court on Oct. 9.

Aww man! There HAS to be an idiot in every sports arena, huh?
Glad he was caught!

There are usually many idiots at the sports arena's. Most of them are in the stands, but quite a few are on the playing field too!

That is about all that needs to be said.
Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

Idget. There....is that more politically correct?

And with a former name of UT Round House - sits unmistakenly on campus. Why bother with the carry permit? Stolen gun. On campus. How is the concealed carry charge going to hurt? They search all bags - he might have gotten away with it if he just carried it. But they do have the wands out and different times.

Well, sounds like he's going to be in the company of 'armed guards'...
Says he has some type of permit, hope it's not a CCW permit holder...sounds like it is.

But you know, if he had one of those CCW badges he might have gotten away with it!

So, for those of us nowhere near the land of barbecue-done-right (TN), what are Tennessee's laws for (a) schools and (b) events like the ones noted?
Irrespective of whether any of that's legal, technically the guy lied about his status despite apparently having a CHL.

The preceding post may contain sarcasm; it's just better that way. However, it is still intended with construction and with the Love of my L-rd Y'shua.
