    I live in South Dakota. Our Governor said, even before the bill left committee, that he would veto it. But he also says he’s for limiting gov’t spending so maybe he’s lying about this too.

    We must get this done in Tennessee this year! It is mandated by Article I, Section 26 of the Declaration of Rights in the Tennessee Constitution. The Legislators and the Governor have a DUTY to obey and uphold their oaths to the State Constitution!!!

    Constitutional carry in Tennessee MUST include concealed carry, just like permit holders, or it is useless. I hope any bill less than this is voted down, and encourage every Tennessean to contact their legislators and make this clear to them.

    I’ve got a feeling that if Tennessee does pass Constitutional Carry, it will require proof of completion of a safety class (requiring live fire) fingerprinting, background check and a fee to the state Department of Safety for a photo ID to confirm all the above to a LEO.

  5. Ron W Says:

    rickn8or, that’s precisely what we have now.

  6. rickn8or Says:

    Ron W. Exactly. Tennessee Legislature has a habit of passing half-assed legislation that has to be tweaked over and over. For example, park carry. They’ve finally got it close to right, except for Chilhowee Park in Knoxville, where you can always carry there, except sometimes maybe not, especially if there’s a school function going on.

  7. Ron W Says:

    rickn8or, Constitutional Carry legislation should be simple and prefaced: Pursuant to the right of the citizens of this State in Article I, Section 26 of the Declaration of Rights, all citizens who own any legal firearm may exercise their right to carry that weapon for self defense without any interference from any official or agent of this State. That article does delegate that “the Legislature shall have power to regulate the WEARING of firearms with a view to prevent crime”, so it does seem that it could be required to carry (holstered or with a sling) in open carry.
