New Tennessee law allows gun owners to keep loaded firearms in vehicle

by Times Free Press  |  published on July 12, 2016


NASHVILLE – Under a new law that quietly took effect last week, many Tennessee gun owners may now legally keep loaded firearms in their vehicles even if they don’t have a state-issued handgun-carry permit.

As of July 1, people who are legally able to possess a gun under state and federal law, you can keep a loaded handgun, shotgun or rifle in a car or truck you legally possess.

Previously, only those with state-issued handgun carry permits could legally keep loaded firearms in their vehicles. Those without carry permits could keep unloaded firearms in the vehicle if the ammunition was stored separately.

    Folks, you do not need city, county, state, or federal law to carry a firearm. What you do need is common sense. If you have to use it, disappear quickly. In a gun fight most people are so stunned they cannot recall anything about the shooter. Put the gun in your pocket and walk or drive away.

    In SC, you could always carry a loaded pistol, as long as it was safely put away in the glove compartment, or under the seat, and you were not a felon. If the law is changed..I am not aware. I realized when I traveled out of SC, I needed to check with each state, with which I would go through, to make sure it was OK, to have a loaded pistol, in my glove compartment. Since reading up on gun laws…I would drive around New Jersey for sure!

      Surprisingly there are 40 mosques in the State of Tennessee, there are 302 in Texas!!
      The least Vermont -1, most California- 525 followed by NY- 507.

        Yes I keep track of it but then again consider the size of Texas to Tennessee etc.

        The mosques are their armories, and I can’t believe that Texas is being slowly over run by muslims and CAL. Dem. that are slowly destroying it!

          The last Governor of TX (Perry) was great friends with Kahn. He is a multi billionaire Muslim, who gives money to states, universities, and the like, to instill Islam into the USA. Kahn is involved with Hamas. But money speaks, and politicians listen. Because of Kahn, Islam was being taught in the state public schools, until some smart parents found out, and stopped them. Somewhere, on my computer, from years ago..is the curriculum they used.

            I guess money is the root of all evil, never in a hundred years would I had thought that Perry would have sold his soul, for money from a D’N muslim!! I have no more use for Perry ever again!
