Gun carry permits
A group of Tennessee mothers is calling on Gov. Bill Lee to veto recently passed legislation that would make it easier to get a handgun carry permit. The bill would be allow Tennesseans to obtain a carry permit by completing at least 90 minutes of online training, and no actual firing of a gun is required. Sponsors of the legislation argue that the current permit requirements are too time-consuming. But the group, Moms Demand Action is calling for a veto. "We are terrified that this might actually go through Governor Bill Lee's desk and he'll sign it," said Vicki Power with Tri-Cities Moms Demand Action. "I don't want my family out in public with people that have no training. We are asking the public and everyone to please call or email Governor Bill Lee." Others have questioned whether other states will recognize Tennessee carry permits if the law is implemented.
