Last Friday the Tennessee House of Representatives voted to override the veto of Governor Phil Bredeson in the gun bill we have previously reported in these pages.
Yesterday the bill was enacted into law by the Tennessee Legislature. The bill will allow the holders of concealed carry permits to carry in establishments that serve alcohol as long as the carrier does not consume alcohol.
Individual business owners can prohibit those with a carry permit from exercising it in their establishment by posting a notice to that effect.
Thanks to those legislators who worked tirelessly to enact this bill.
