Guns in vehicles
Under a new law that took effect recently, Tennessee gun owners may now legally keep loaded firearms in their vehicles even if they don't have a state-issued handgun-carry permit. People who are legally able to possess a gun under state and federal law, can keep a loaded handgun, shotgun or rifle in a car or truck that is legally possessed. 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. Proponents see the measure as an expansion of gun rights and a fairness move for commuters who have no carry permits but are worried about safety, as well as for hunters. Sen. Mike Bell says, "It's essentially an extension of the 'castle doctrine,' that you can defend your 'castle,' ... your home, if you feel threatened."
