    Tennessee--Suit Thrown Out That Would Stop Guns In Restaurants Bill

    Suit Thrown Out That Would Stop Guns In Restaurants Bill
    Posted: July 13, 2009 03:52 PM

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. - A judge has thrown out a lawsuit intended to keep Tennessee's new restaurant gun law from going into effect.

    A group of restaurant owners went to court Monday to try and stop a new law that would let people carry handguns into restaurants that serve alcohol in the state.

    The group was concerned that the law would create increased liability for businesses. They also believe the mixture of alcohol and weapon create a potentially deadly combination.
    See remainder of the story here:

    So, at midnight tonight, you can carry in restaurants that serve alcohol in Tennessee as long as you do not yourself imbibe! ETA: AND as long as the restaurant is not posted IAW Tennessee Code Annotated Chapter 39-17-1359.
    If the public are bound to yield obedience to laws to which they cannot give their approbation, they are slaves to those who make such laws and enforce them.--Samuel Adams as Candidus, Boston Gazette 20 Jan. 1772

    He is a she.

    One thing the article did not mention; she did say she thought some of the arguments in the suit had potential merit, so she asked for parties to see her in ninety days. So, as usual, the media doesn't get it exactly right.

    I'm just one root in a grassroots organization. No one should assume that I speak for the VCDL.

    I am neither an attorney-at-law nor I do play one on television or on the internet. No one should assumes my opinion is legal advice.

    No one had still confirmed or denied my right to carry at the Grand Ole' Opry...ANYONE?

    Im sure if its concealed its concealed. Ive been a couple of times and didnt have my permit at the time but there were no metal det. or wands or anything. Youll sit on wooden benchs kind of like church so you may be sitting kinda close to someone. Ill see if i can find out a more definate answer for you. Have fun.
