It looks like Tennessee is going to get a Parking Lot Bill passed!!!!
A bill that would allow employees to keep guns in their cars while at work has passed the Senate 28-5, IIRC. It would also allow non-students with carry permits to store their guns in their car on school property as I understand it.
The companion bill must be passed in the House, but all indications are it will be passed. There was some early concern that schools would be excluded, but the indication I see right now is that professors, such as myself, will be able to legally store a gun in their car.
This bill(s) would also clear up another ambiguity in TN law that says we can carry a gun on school property, but as it stands, it seems that the AG of TN interprets that to mean if one is not aware he has a gun in his vehicle???
As it stands right now, it is a felony to have a gun in a car, in any form, on school property.
