Quote:Governor likely to OK Tennessee's "guns-in-trunks" bill

NASHVILLE, Tenn (Reuters) - Tennessee residents who hold permits that allow them to carry handguns will be able to take their weapons to work as long as they leave them locked in their cars, the result of legislation passed on Thursday by the state's House.

Following the Senate earlier in the month, the House passed the bill 72-22 after about an hour's debate, despite reservations from the business community. The bill was dubbed "guns-in-trunks" because permit holders could keep guns in car trunks.

Governor Bill Haslam will get the bill next week, and will likely sign it, according to his spokesman. If it is enacted, it will reverse current Tennessee law that makes it legal for any business or government body to prohibit possession of weapons - locked in the trunk or otherwise - on their property.

Jeremy Faison, a Republican state representative who sponsored the legislation, said 400,000 "law-abiding citizens" had gone through the process of obtaining handgun carry permits.

"The least we can do is allow them to keep this gun locked in their car as they go to work and carry on their daily lives in the state of Tennessee," he said.

The bill is one of several pro-gun laws that have been proposed in some states since last December, when a gunman shot and killed 20 children and six adults at a school in Newtown, Connecticut.

Pa is real good at introducing pro legislation,
and a bunch of incompetent fools at advancing any of it.

We have more or less pro a 2A governor, and we're wasting it.
I've been very dissapointed the past couple years.

Admit nothing.  Deny everything. Demand proof.
If we lie to the government, it's a crime. If the government lies to the people, it's called politics.

Ditto


I'd like to see PA LTCFs recognized in MORE states, not less. I want PA to sign a bill into law that forbids the federal government from confiscating firearms, limiting magazine capacities, and banning "assault rifles". Lastly, I want punitive actions taken against police officers who harass law abiding citizens just for open carrying even in cities of the first class who require an LTCF to open carry.
