      As a CCW permit holder in TN, I agree that this is a step in the right direction. In Tn, it is also illegal for permit holders to carry in any establishment that serves alcohol or liquor stores. I think that needs to be changed too. If I want to go to O'charleys and have a steak with sweet tea, why should I be deprived of my handgun? If a responsible gun owner is going to a restaurant to drink, they should leave their guns @ home or in their vehicles. As far as liquor stores goes, they get robbed just like convenience stores do. If I go to a liquor store, I'm not going to be drinking in the store.

      Here's a link to the story if anyone is interested. I hope it passes.

      I believe that's incorrect. Only places where alcohol is served for consumption on premises are forbidden. Merely sold is OK.
      I like to go to Weiss Liquors on Main St, which is a bad part of town. But I asked Mr Weiss once whether he had ever been robbed. He told me one guy had tried it in his C-store. I asked what happened. He said, next thing the guy knew he was staring at Mr. Weiss' 12 gauge.

        Good move TN!!
        I live near Chattanooga and one day hubby and I were on our way to Sam's Club. He was driving slightly over the speed limit like he usually does and he was stopped on I-75 inside the city limits. He had a loaded 9mm on the seat. When the LEO walked up he told him that he had a loaded handgun on the seat but he had a carry permit and asked if he wanted to see it. The LEO smiled and told him "no, I'm not worried about the permit holders. It's the ones that carry without one that worry me". Anyway, he gave him the ticket, smiled and told us to have a nice day. No fuss no muss. Everything was civilized.

        John has a lead foot so I normally drive but didn't that day. Costs us less that way.

        "I'm against gun control generally. You know, you check my record. You'll find I'm pretty consistent on that issue."
