    Corporate locations usually make a across the board.


    However, a few "corporate decisions" defer to the State and local law."

    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.

    Arko, Just signed onto TGO. Thanks for the info.
    We go to TN 3-4 times a year. Son and his family (especially the granddaughter) are there. Headed that way in a week and a half.

    I have also been trying to figure out the new laws. Restaurants okay unless posted properly. I have some idea what proper signs look like.

    I need to get clear on parks...which are okay, which are not.

    Oh, not too close to you, but I can wave at Tangle on the way through to the Cumberland plateau.

    Again, thanks.

    You're welcome!
    It's a good group over there, much like here. These are the only two gun forums I spend my time on.

    As for the restaurant signage, I understand it must refer to the state statute or have similar language such as:

    PURSUANT TO 39-17-1359, THE OWNER/OPERATOR OF THIS PROPERTY HAS BANNED WEAPONS ON THIS PROPERTY, OR WITHIN THIS BUILDING OR THIS PORTION OF THIS BUILDING. FAILURE TO COMPLY WITH THIS PROHIBITION IS PUNISHABLE AS A CRIMINAL ACT UNDER STATE LAW AND MAY SUBJECT THE VIOLATOR TO A FINE OF NOT MORE THAN FIVE HUNDRED DOLLARS ($500).

    For all practical purposes, I don't bother to split hairs. If it looks ANYTHING like that, I assume they mean it, that it would pass the smell test with a LEO, and they don't deserve or want my money.

    Oh, and hey, if you can wave to Tangle, I could probably see you too! I'm just 20 minutes North of him!

    If you travel I-75 between Chattanooga and Cleveland, you'll pass within 400 feet or so of my house.

    Well, I'll wave on Wed., but you may not see it.
    We will be headed the other way, toward Cumberland area.
