GOVERNOR BILL LEE SIGNS “CONSTITUTIONAL CARRY” BILL INTO LAW

///
Comments are Off

Tennessee Governor Bill Lee signed a bill into law today (April 8, 2021) allowing anyone to carry a firearm as long as they meet the requirements and are over 21 years old, instead of having to get a permit.

The bill does not change the laws about purchasing a gun, which include conducting a background check when buying from a federally licensed firearm dealer. People who have been convicted of a crime prohibiting them from owning a gun cannot buy one, and neither can people with some mental health issues.

It will take effect in July 2021.
