Is it legal to OC a rifle or shotgun in Tennessee? I know the law states that you can have a rifle or shotgun in your vehicle to go armed as long as there is not a round in the chamber. But what about just being in public on foot? Or going to Wall-Mart or the grocery store with a rifle or shotgun slung over your shoulder? I have no intent on trying. Just curious if I was protected by my SECOND AMENDMENT if I ever felt I had a reason to.
