TN 'bar carry' passed into law
Didn't see this posted anywhere yes, I appologise if it has been.
Yesterday SB 3012 Jackson/HB 3125 Todd. passed and its now onto the gov'ner. I'm sure it will be signed.
For those of you who don't know, last year TN passed legislation which would allow permit holders to carry in restaraunts, but not bars. It was ruled too vague since TN has no way to distinguish resteraunts from bars. This new bill allows carry in any place that serves alcohol.
In addition some new penalties for carrying and drinking, which I have no problem with, and some additional info on what 'no gun' signs are valid. ($500 fine for carrying in a posted location if caught)
Very happy about this bill! I can now safely eat at applebees again :comeandgetsome:
Still wish they would get rid of the no gun sign stuff, but we are doing good here in TN and very happy about this bill for sure!
edit: and like the last bill, this one passed in both houses by about a 2/3 majority
