Tennessee gun laws operate at the state level on a "Shall Issue" policy. The laws are considered gun friendly with no requirement for purchase approval or registration of firearms. Applications for a CCW permit can be made online or at any drivers Service Center and are processed by the Department of Safety. Non-residents can only obtain a CCW permit if they work in the state on a regular basis, they can only make an application after being employed for 6 months and then only within 6 months after the initial 6 month work period. A 8 hour training course in firearm safety is required for new applications but exemptions are given to military personnel.

    YES – Without a permit

    It is legal to carry a handgun openly or concealed in a vehicle that is privately owned, this includes boats and RVs. No permit is required and the firearm can be located anywhere in the vehicle but not on your person.

    The Law
    39.17.1307 – Unlawful carrying

    NO – Must Inform Officer

    There is nothing in Tennessee gun laws that state you must inform a law enforcement officer you have a firearm when approached on official business.

    The law does require that you carry your permit at all times during which the permittee is in actual possession of a concealed handgun and display it to an officer if he requests a person to do so.

    Tennessee gun laws give the force of law to “No Weapons” signs. There are legal penalties for entering a private property or business that has posted these signs.

    GunsToCarry recommends that you do not enter a property displaying a “No Weapons” sign whether the law is for or against signage. If asked to leave a property and you refuse to do so then you are breaking the law and put yourself at risk of being charged.

    YES
    In Restaurants That Serve Alcohol

    “Yes” or “No” states if you can carry in a restaurant that serves alcohol. Some restaurants may be posted with “NO GUN” signs. Check with the staff if this means just the bar area. If we have indicated a “Yes” then it should be legal to have a meal without drinking alcohol.

    NO
    Tennessee does not have constitutional carry.
    “That the citizens of this State have a right to keep and to bear arms for their common defense; but the Legislature shall have power, by law, to regulate the wearing of arms with a view to prevent crime.”

    Comments

    1. Can you get a TN CCW if you are active duty military stationed in TN (Fort Campbell), and have a house in TN, but legally still a resident of another state? Does being physically residency meet the residency requirement, or do I have to change my drivers license, voter registration, and everything else before I can get a CCW? I get stationed a new place every three years and am not required to change my residency for any other purpose.

    2. I’m visiting for a few days from nc. I’m allowed to open carry here with no permit. My question is while I’m visiting can I legally have my handgun in the truck loaded as long as it stays in the truck while I’m in tenn?

    3. Do I need a permit etc, to transport my handgun in my vehicle to shooting range for practice in TN?

    4. I am visiting from nc, can I have a loaded gun in my car,I do not have a ccw

    5. If I am from Michigan and I want to vacation in Gatlinburg, can I carry on my person in my car if I’m a valid Concealed Pistol license from Michigan?

    6. So whats the difference between enhanced and Carry permits

    7. I live in MS but I work most often in TN as a house/petsitter and child caregiver (independent contractor for many different clients). I have been working in and around TN for years. I get paid mostly in cash so there are no paystubs or anything just what I put on my taxes. Would I be able to get a TN gun permit or do I have to get a MS permit?

    9. I am wondering me and my wife have a conceal carry permit and she is wanting me to find out if we are allowed to conceal carry with one in the chamber. I said yes it would be smarter for if you needed to use it

    10. Okay, I have a question with a possibly obvious answer but I cant find the info. I am a resident of Illinois with a FOID card but not a concealed carry permit. I am traveling alone throughout Tennessee and will be going to very remote locations. Am I able to open carry my handgun? I’m not trying to go to museums or crowded places, I just don’t want to alarm anyone that I dont intend to.

    11. Haut-top compagnies-entreprises pour trading-négoce-commerce-négociation crypto monnaie. currency-trading-brokers.com/forex-comparisons-ratings-reviews-france.html

    12. What are the regulations, if any, on carrying a modified weapon? Such as aftermarket sights or internals?

    13. I am 20 years old from Alabama and have an Alabama concealed carry permit. Am I allowed to conceal carry in Tennessee?

      1. No. While TN permit holders may carry in AL, AL permit holders cannot carry in TN.
        I have no idea why, yet.

    14. I have to agree and also disagree with the above statement, “Open carry is not common in cities and mainly used as a carry method in rural areas.”
      As an Open Carrier of a firearm, “ever day, every where” I do agree that it’s not that common to see someone else open carrying. However, in the 2 years since I retired here from the US Army, I have seen a dramatic increase in others that feel (and act) the same as myself. Just the other day, a young lady was getting fuel next to me and we struck up a conversation about us both OCing.
      I have to say that here in Clarksville and down in Nashville, the police have NEVER harassed me or even questioned me about it and seem to have adapted great to OC.

    15. We are traveling to TN from Michigan. My family rented a house on 100 plus acres outside of Nashville. I was wonder if I can legally carry a pistol on the private property. The home owner mentioned bears and coyotes on the property. Want to carry as we explore the property.

    16. As a small business owner, do I have to have a CCW Permit to have a gun in my shop?

      1. No. If you are in your home or your own place of business, you are not required to have a permit. Only if you intend to carry the weapon loaded off of the premises, do you need one.

    17. what is the military part of owning a gun in TN, i spent 12 years in the army, have a DD214 and am looking to buy, with the intention of a CCW, what do i need to do. Please help me figure this out

    18. Do you have to be 21 to have a pistol in your car? Or can you just be 18?

    19. Do you have to be 21 to qualify under carrying a firearms in your car? Or can you be 18 and be just fine ?

    20. how should i carry a shot gun if I’m camping in Tenn, in the national forest?

    21. I’m in the process of moving to TN from VA and have had my VA CCP since 2016. I have a clean record all around and really can’t understand why I have to take a class in TN. If what I’m seeing is correct, it takes 90 days to get a TN CCP. What do I do in the meantime; can I still concealed carry with the VA CCP even though I’m a TN resident?

      1. Yes, as long as it is valid. No, it does not take 90 days. I took the class and had my permit within 2 weeks.

      1. Yep as long as their pistols there is no limit on how many. Just use commonsense.

    22. I was reading on how to obtain a CCW permit in Tennessee. I currently reside in California and plan on retiring in Tennessee soon. I will have a permanent address/house. After reviewing the requirements, I feel Comfotible that I would qualify for a CCW permit.

      The only area of concern is I read that are requirement to be employed for a period of not less than six months. I will be retired. Most likely I will obtain my real estate brokers license, as that is what I do in California. This is not going to be a full-time job! I may be misunderstanding what is required, but do you really need to be employed to carry CCW permit? Thank you for in advance for you help.

      George

      1. If you have a residential address in Tennessee the 6 months dose not apply. Only time you would need the 6 month of employment in state is if you live out of state and wish to carry while in state for work.

    23. I’ve got my Oklahoma conceal carry open carry License I’m gonna be traveling out of state to Memphis Tennessee for business what are the laws of me carrying and or having a handgun while in Memphis Tennessee

      1. You don’t need a permit to carry in tn. Google Tennessee’s gun laws to be sure. As far as I know, if you are legal to buy and possess a gun you can carry. I carry in my car everyday.

        1. Partially right. You don’t need one to carry in your car but you need one to carry on your person. If it’s on your person and your in your car you need one but if it’s in the console or glove box you don’t need one.

      2. I reside in NC.. planning vacation to TN.. is my NC CCP recognized in Tn

        1. Can someone tell me is my CCP from NC still legal to vacation in Tenn?

          1. Yes you will be legal in Tennessee as long as you have your CCP in your posession.

    24. I am 63 years old and live alone. I have been thinking of buying a hand gun for protection for myself at home. The background check is not a problem. What steps do I have to go through to purchase a handgun in Tennessee? I have a DL and have lived in Tennessee all of my life. I will not be carrying the guy anywhere except to take home. Do I have to wait 90 days to buy the gun?

      1. Step 1. Go to gun store or show. Step 2. Buy gun. No waiting. They do a federal background check which is 5-10 min delay and if you pass it, you can take it on home. There is a small fee for the check even if you fail it. You can defend your home with it without any more than this, but outside the home needs that permit.

      2. There is no waiting period in Tennessee. If the store has the firearm you want to purchase in stock all you have to do is fill out the appropriate paperwork pay for the background check and pass it. Stay safe

      3. Just walk I. To a gun store bring your driver’s license and credit card and you’ll be good to go

    25. if i am 20 am i allowed to have a handgun in my vehicle knoxville tennessee?

      1. Yes you are. You must be 18 or older to have any firearm in your home. You can do so without a permit

    26. If traveling across US, not all states will honor the TN right to carry in vehicle. They will seize your gun. To get your gun back you must prove ownership by presenting the original sales receipt in person for they can not ship it to you….otherwise they keep it.
      It is probably best, in such a case, to store the gun out of sight and refrain from admitting you have a gun..

    27. I don’t think or feel we should have to have a permit to be able to carry a gun on us period. It’s all a bunch of bull shit.

      1. Totally, I’m moving to Missouri from Illinois. It’s like night and day

    28. I don’t think or feel we should have to have a permit to be able to carry a gun on us period.

    29. I don’t have anything on my background but my driver’s license is suspended because I didn’t show up to court 2 days after having my baby . Can I still get my gun permit?

      1. Yes. You can still get a concealed carry permit, even if your license is suspended. But what were your charges? You can be denied a permit if you have had a DUI in the past 5 years.

    30. I’m traveling with my family to Memphis Tennessee I own a gun but do not have the chl license I live in San Antonio tx can I carry my gun in my vechile in the glovebox with Clíp on the side as I carry it in Texas going into Tennessee or is that illegal dnt have a record or been in jail it’s a registered firearm just for protection for my family can anyone help me with that answer plz

      1. Tennessee has a reciprocal agreement with Texas. As long as you have a valid Texas concealed carry permit, you can legally carry a loaded, concealed handgun in Tennessee just as you would in TX. Enjoy your trip, and try some of our sweet, spicy Memphis barbeque!

    31. I Live In Illinois And I Got My Conceal To Carry and I Plan On Staying In Memphis For 3 Weeks What Are Some IMPORTATION Gun Laws I Should Know Before I Come

      1. Nobody recognizes Illinois CC because Illinois doesn’t recognize any other state!

        1. In Illinois, you have to have in your possession a FOID card issued by state police to possess ammunition or any firearm. Totally unconstitutional!!

        2. Permit’s Tennessee Honors:
          Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, Wisconsin, Wyoming

    32. Can i open carry on private property without a permit? We are working in a bad area in nashville. They are targeting construction crews. I havent been able to take the course yet, but i dont want to get robbed or killed. I have the right to defended myself. I cant find a answer anywhere.

        1. Except in your home personnel vehicle camper or boat or on your property

      1. it is legal to carry loaded in your car but not on your person without a permit

    33. I just moved from Arizona where I have a CCW permit in good standing. Does anyone know if now that I’m a resident I have to retake a class and get a Tennessee CCW or if I can continue to carry using my Arizona CCW? I literally just paid for a permit in AZ before I found out I was moving and it seems stupid to throw that all away unless I have to.

      1. Sabrina; Reciprocity only applies if you still live in the State that has reciprocity with another. Since you have moved to TN your AZ carry permit would need to be converted because you now reside in the state of TN.Since you have already held a permit, as long as AZ has the same training required as TN (8 hours, plus range) then the new permit should be easy. If not you would have to do the safety and range time.

    34. If I have anxiety can I still be able to own a firearm? Also if I take medication for anxiety would I be able to own a firearm as well?

      1. Would like to know as well I’ve never been to jail never broke the law stand up citizen. I dont even have mental anxiety I just have physical like trouble breathing and take meds for it I would like to know if I can still get a ccw befor wasting 8 hours and 60 dollars and have a denied ccw on my record

        1. I’d call the TN Department of Safety and ask since they actually do the issuing of permits.

    35. Moving from CA to TN in June. Is it the same process if I currently have a CCW from CA to get my new CCW in TN?

    36. If I don’t have my handgun permit but own a handgun which I can have in my home or in my vehicle. Can I use it at a firing range without the permit?

      1. Yes, but you have to carry the handgun in a case and unloaded with the ammo stored separately while going into the range.

    37. Does Tenn CCW cover carrying a loaded AR pistol inside of your vehicle passenger compartment?

      1. A pistol is a pistol in TN. The courts avoided ruling on this in the two cases I know of, and instead in one of them forced the offender to sell the ar pistol or suffer going to court over it, he sold it instead (with nothing preventing buying another later).

    38. Im from SC, going to be hiking in TN. But will be driving to TN to Hike. South Carolina Law allows you to carry the gun on your person at all times even in the car, I see however that TN does not want your gun to be on your person as you drive? Is this true?

      1. You can have the handgun on your person as long as you have a handgun carry permit. If you don’t have a permit, you may still keep the gun in your vehicle but it cannot be on your person.

    39. What is the rule on a permit holder storing a handgun locked in vehicle while working on Memphis airport property?

    40. Can I work Security with a Ar15 if I have my arm guard license and my CCW

    41. Hi there is there a difference in a Hand gun and a rifle in the state of Tennessee?

      1. Yes. Its complex, so I would read the laws online at tn.gov on this. Permit is not for rifles, and rules are different.

    42. Can I carry weapon in my car passing through Tenn enroute to South Carolina ?

    43. What code covers carrying more than one handgun when carrier possess permit.

    44. Under the carry in a vehicle section, this page states that you may carry in your vehicle without a permit, but that it can not be on your person. This is incorrect, as there is no restriction to where the weapon is located in the vehicle, provided that the operator is in legal possession of said vehicle. Please recheck the TCA and update the listing.

      1. You are wrong. If the weapon is on your person, it’s carrying under the statute and you must have a permit to carry. It can be in the cup holder, glove box, in a holster under the steering wheel, wherever – but not on your person. Please recheck the TCA.

    45. A person a pistol on me, and they did nothing to this person. And he admitted he pulled the to officer, i was not armed , can anyone do this to people and the law does nothing.

      1. You are not to pull your gun from it’s holster anytime unless protecting yourself or others. If not it could be assault or something

      1. No, you cannot. You must have a Concealed Carry Permit to open or conceal carry a handgun in the state of Tennessee. You must be 21 to be eligible to receive a conceal carry permit, thus a 20 year old would not be able to carry a firearm.

        If transporting to/from a range, the weapon must be in a case/holster and unloaded, with ammo carried separately.

        1. You can have the handgun in your house or in your car as long as you are in legal possession or the firearm and vehicle.

    46. I own a firearm that was privately purchased (not registered), but it was mine. My boyfriend was arrested on drug charges, and in the search of the house, they found the gun. I wasnt aware of the fact at the time that he was a felon… I wasn’t home at the time of the search, and I’ve never been asked a single question by anyone. Hes being charged with it, but he didn’t know it was there. They even have a recorded phone call from jail where I admit it was mine. Why will they not just charge me with it? And why will they not allow me to even make a statement about it?

      1. Because it really don’t matter when you are a convicted felony you might not know but they know what they are not allowed to be around but when it’s drugs involve they also using it as he had it for protection and it was in his possessions at that time and could been used just when you get him a lawyer just be at Evey court date and also tell the lawyer cause that’s the only person you going to be able to talk and speak on that behalf of that so I hope this information help you and your boyfriend

    47. What are the gun laws i n Hamilton county Tenn concerning target practice with rifles or shot guns?

      1. Check with you local police dept. or Sheriff’s dept. I don’t believe you are permitted to fire weapons within city limits, but should be good outside of the city. Not 100% sure about that in Hamilton County.
        Just make sure you are firing safely. When you pull the trigger, you are responsible for where that bullet/shot goes.

      1. In Tennessee, yes, it does. Having a handgun permit in Tennessee also makes it legal to open carry.

      1. Tennessee does not have a “concealed carry permit”. It is a handgun carry permit. Yes you can carry concealed but you can also carry open. But to answer your question you cannot buy a handgun out of the state you live in with or without a handgun carry permit.

        1. A Tennessee resident cannot legally purchase a firearm from an online licensed dealer?

    48. I have lost my birth certificate and have no passport. Is there another way to prove citizenship?

      1. You can go down to the Department of Vital Records to obtain a new copy of your birth certificate. I’m not sure how much the prices are, but you will need cash (at least the last time I went, years ago), and it doesn’t take long.

    49. I am a retired NYS Correction Officer and hold a NY CCW. I am also a MPCT certified weapons instructor. I am planning on moving to Tennessee, what would the requirements be for me to get my Tennessee CCW? Would I be required to take the training course?

    50. I am 20 years old I live in Memphis, TN, I was wondering to know could I go to a local gun shop and purchase a rifle or shotgun without a permit to carry.

      1. You can purchase a firearm from a local gun shop without a permit, but you must be 21 years of age or older. However, you can purchase a gun from a private party, and legally own a firearm in the state of TN as long as you are 18 or older.

    51. I am confused by Tenn. Code Ann. § 39-17-1311 I and J.
      Can you only carry if you are doing the activities in J? The end of I says “and.”

    52. Two things…
      1. TN allows NON VIOLENT felons with their rights restored, and have no explicit language that does not allow firearm rights to said felon, to carry and possess firearms and have the right to a handgun permit. This does not apply to drug related felonies or violence related felonies (39-17-1307 b). 39-17-1351 j, 39-17-1307 b and c, and 39-17-1316.

      2. 39-17-1308 is not a defense to vehicles. 39-17-1307 provides vehicle provisions.

      This statute is via July 2018 Tennessee Code Annotated

    53. I have a NH permit and i’m moving to TN , and i dont need to go through the course and pay for it all over again. TN should honor it and provide trade in NH for TN

      1. Hey Art, I’m fairly certain you will have to take the test again. The good part about that is most not all counties will give you the test at no charge through local law enforcement. They might charge a small range fee I think mine was like$5. The bad part is that you will have to pay at the DMV to get your permit. I’m pretty sure it is$100 for 8 years. I’ve had mine for many multiple years. The last time I got it renewed they were only doing four years at the time. I think you can pay extra and get a lifetime permit it’s a much better deal.

    54. I dont have a TN drivers license. I recently moved from Nj but do not posses a gun permit. Can I still apply for one?

      1. You don’t need a driver’s license to apply for the permit. What you do first is go online and register and then take the course at one of the local gun ranges. Then once you do that you will have to have proof of residency. But you do not need the proof of identification that you are a Tennessee resident until you actually go to the driver’s license office to actually apply once completing the course. Once you take the training class for the CCW permit it is good for one year. So you have time once you apply for it to actually go into their driver’s license office and actually fill out the paperwork.

    55. I possess an Idaho Enhanced Concealed Carry Permit, and will be traveling cross country to vacation in Tennessee….just want to be clear about vehicle carry….can I conceal carry on my person while driving? The verbiage only addresses “Without Permit”. All other states I will be traveling through allow concealed carry on your person in a vehicle with a valid ccw….any clarification would be greatly appreciated!

    56. I do not have a TN driver’s license, but I have a military retiree ID card and gas bill, electric bill and home rental agreement. Will that suffice to prove Tennessee residency?

    57. I have read the vehicle laws several times and I am still confused. I have a concealed carry permit. Is it lawful for someone with a concealed carry permit to have a firearm on your person or does it have to be somewhere else in the vehicle?

      1. From what I read it states that you can have your gun anywhere in the vehicle and loaded but NOT on your person. Previously it had to be concealed in a glove box and the ammo stored elsewhere in the vehicle.

        1. Law provides that you can lawfully possess a firearm in your vehicle as long as the firearm and vehicle is lawfully possessed by you. TCA 39-17-1307

    58. Interstate travel carry permit reciprocity is pretty straightforward regarding sidearms, but what about long guns? My limited research regarding traveling with rifles seems to be written for non-permit holders… i.e. unloaded, locked, and/or inaccessible. Does that change once a permit is obtained?

    59. Okay so in clarksville the waffle houses have it posted no firearms allowed but yet have an armed security guard on duty. Isnt this a double standard?

      1. I presume while acting in an official capacity and with the business operator/owner’s consent, the security officer can be armed.

    60. Did anyone else notice there is a FAQ “Are I required to conceal my gun?” That ain’t no way to speak English son.

    61. I have a valid ccw. Is it legal to carry my weapon (concealed) in a bar if I’m not drinking and there is no carry sign posted ?

      1. As long as there is NOT a “no guns allowed” sign posted, yes, it’s legal to carry into a bar, in TN., as long as you aren’t consuming alcohol while you are carrying.

    62. I am a senior citizen (age 77). I am interested in passing on my personal firearms to my two sons. I am not aware of any of the firearms being registered. I have purchased several firearms off the internet and went through the proper procedures with a person possessing a federal firearms license. I do not know if the process (purchasing off the internet) constituted the guns being registered on the federal/state levels or not.
      I have conducted a little research on the bequeathment of firearms and think a Deed of Gift document would serve my specific needs and protect my two sons as far as ownership of the firearms is concerned. Is there a better way of making sure of the legalities of gifting the firearms.
      Am I required to place a value on the gift? Will my sons be required to pay any kind of gift tax on the firearms? I read your instructions and information related to Private sale of firearms and interpreted those instructions to mean I could convey the gift to anyone I wanted without the involvement of a federal firearm licensed person or registration. I checked with a gun dealer in Sevierville, TN and he said Tennessee did not require registration of firearms.

      I want to make sure I am not causing a problem for our boys. I simply want to make them a nice gift and keep the vintage firearms in the family.

      I would appreciate your reply and I thank you for your attention.

      1. There is no gun registration. All I would do is tell your sons that you want to give them the guns as an inheritance, and which ones you want each kid to get. I wouldn’t do any more than that.

      2. If the recipients are Tennessee citizens you can just gift them with no required paperwork. If they live out of state you will need to send the firearms to a FFL dealer in that state, and have an FFL transfer to the recipient.

    63. If i have a current Arkansas concealed permit can i transfer my AR permit to a TN permit without having to take another firearm course ? What is the fees i would have to pay to transfer my permit over?

    64. My husband has prior DUI’s from his younger days and can’t purchase a firearm. He is not considered a convicted felon in the eyes of the law. How can he legally purchase a handgun and what are the laws that are keeping him from doing so?

      1. If he hasn’t been convicted of one DUI in the past 5 years, two in the past 10 years, and 5 years for every consecutive DUI after that, he is eligible for a permit in TN pending he has no felonies or domestic violence convictions.

        To touch on your question, he needs to try to purchase a firearm. When he’s denied, he can fill out the paperwork to have TBI dig in and see what’s holding it up. If everything clears, they will remove his name from the list. I had two friends who did the same and got cleared.

    65. I am under the age of 21, but am a member of the Air Force National Guard. I am not on active duty status, as I am a guardsman. Do I have to be on active orders to be able to apply for a conceal carry?

      1. No, I am in the Army National Guard and I am under the age of 21. I got my carry permit this week.

    66. I am traveling tomorrow through Alabama,Georgia and Florida. I want to take my weapon. I am licensed in the State of TN. Can I do it in all three states without worry?

      1. Download the app called legal heat. It had each states law. I use it all the time.

    67. If you are active duty military living in fort Campbell and you have a CCW from an other state does that mean I can keep my out of state ccw and use that past the 6-month since I claim an other state as residence? or do I have to get a Tennessee license in order to be able to carry?

    68. Does anyone recommend Self-Defense SHIELD Protection through USCCA or from any other company?

      1. Legal protection can be valuable when having to defend yourself from potential gun related charges. In addition to the above named companies you might also want to look into LegalShield as they provide both Gun (Most States) and Non-Gun (All 50 States & Canada) related Legal protection.

    69. I’m in the military and have an active military ID can I concealed carry with this like West Virginia state law?

    70. Im only 18 but my dad is gifting me a handgun, can I legally carry it in my car loaded or unloaded?

    71. Went to a good and drinking establishment the other day. The sign on the door said “No firearms allowed”. Said nothing of authorized by TVA 39-17-1359. Is this a legal sign?

    72. I am a TN, resident now and have handguns rifle , how do I go about getting registered to carry my side arms, I am currently Army Retired , will this help getting my license?

      1. No need to register your guns. I would advise that you don’t. It won’t help you get a license. Take the class, get finger printed and file the application then wait. It is pretty simple.

      2. Actually I am a veteran and I got my permit without having to take the class if you have documentation from the military stating that you have handgun training them you don’t have to take the class I used a DA-88R

    73. I have a ccw from California and just moved to Tn. Do I need to re take a class to get a per.it here?

        1. I was wrong my permit DOES NOT have CCW.
          Sorry for not looking before writing.

    74. The TN law states that you can not have a firearm on you if you do not have a permit. So, if you have a permit it can be on you? I wish the states laws were written so the law abiding citizens could understand them and know that they’re doing right by the law.

      1. Generally, this is not allowed however if the administration of the church authorize you to carry you may. Some churches have designated guards/ushers who keep an eye on things and they are often armed. Off duty and retired LEOs are often chosen for this.

      1. To be considered a LEO in the state of Tennessee you must be P.O.S.T. certified. This results from attending and graduating from an approved police academy or training program. P.O.S.T. stands for Peace Officer Standards & Training. Also, LEOs are required to take 40 hours of continuing education annually.

        1. This requirement does not extend to federal agency LEOs. It does apply however to state and local law enforcement. A person hired by a police department may not refer to themselves as a “Police Officer” until completing training. The term “Officer” by itself is not restricted. Private security officers abound.

    75. Probably a dumb question but does the vehicle carry law extend to horses if I keep my firearm in a saddlebag and not on my person?

    76. I just moved to Tennessee from Florida. I have a Florida concealed carry permit. I am ex-military.
      Will I have to take the concealed carry class to obtain a Tennessee carry permit?

      1. If you were out of military less than 5 years your ok over 5 years you have to take course

    77. I was adopted and my birth certificate was never corrected. I do have my adoption papers with my birth certificate, my question is if i take the course again (passed it already years ago) will i be able to get a carry permit with both documents proving who i am?

      1. Do you have a U.S. passport and a TN drivers license? It would be easier for you to present those documents when applying for your HCP/CCW.

    78. Hello we are going to Tennessee for our anniversary from NC i have a gun permit is it legal in Tennessee

    79. Can a DA in a Tennessee courtroom have a right to conceal a firearm while in court like Trevor lynch does in cannon county ,Woodbury tn,37190

      . Donald k. Morrison with all respect

      1. If you were convicted or pleaded guilty to any form of domestic assault you are now by Federal law no longer allowed to be in possession of a firearm, not even ammo. You can’t even be around a person who is carrying or in a vehicle with someone else weapon. It is a mandatory 5 year Federal sentence if you are caught. There is no reprieve or expungement, the ban is permanent and for life within the USA. Your only good news is that you will probably die soon and not have to worry about carrying a weapon.

      2. Well Hank B Bad at Gmail, I’m in agreement with Sam on a few points. It appears you have, like your email warns, been bad. Having been in law enforcement in Tennessee for over a decade I have never seen a person denied an HCP that was an honest, unconvicted, non-felon. Unfortunately good people sometimes go apeshit and do stupid things that affect them the rest of their lives. You have to pay the piper. Do the crime, do the time and all the other sayings. There is nothing but innocent people in prison. Ask any of them. And it appears all the people denied a handgun permit has a story of why it wasn’t their fault that they did something to get the permit cancelled or renewal denied. But I’m a glass half full kind of guy. Having beat cancer myself. I disagree with Sam on one aspect. My suggestion is that you not be consoled by the sweet release of death but live on having endured cancer treatment and move to England or Japan where even the police don’t have guns. That way it won’t be an issue that you can’t carry. Because no one can.

    81. So can I keep my handgun loaded (minus one in the chamber) within my vehicle, legally? Center console or glove box?

      1. Unless you are prohibited from owning a gun you can carry in your vehicle.
        I don’t know why you would carry without a round in the chamber. The only time you will need a gun is when seconds count and it takes more than a few seconds to access the gun let alone chamber a round and then get on target. If you don’t have one in the chamber you might be better off just driving away.

    82. My husband and I are retired LEOs from another state and recently relocated to TN. We are currently able to carry concealed through HR 218 (Law Enforcement Safety Act of 2004). We have been trying to get our yearly qualification completed locally and having trouble doing so. Most departments do not have a program in place for this. Any recommendations or suggestions would be appreciated.

      1. Pay the $100 , and as a retired LE you get the lifetime TN CCW and can forget about the annual qualification. Pain in the a$$ anyway.

      2. Castle doctrine applies to vehicles. So you can actually have a live round ready to rock.

    83. I’m moving to Tennessee from Florida which I have my CCW here. But you require a 8 hr class for new applicants? Why would I need to do this if I already have my CCW

      1. You shouldn’t have to. Go to the nearest dmv and ask for information. You should be able to just carry in general but have to follow tennessee state laws about carrying. If not you may have into get a new permit. Would be tragic to do so, but better to be safe than sorry.

      2. When I moved here from IN, TN recognized my IN permit for 6 months, if you have changed your residency, I believe you have to follow the application process for that state. I had to attend the class, as a new applicant and give them my IN permit, although it did get returned to me.

      3. Bill, Florida has the absolute best reciprocity in the country. My Father who is a resident of Texas, has a Florida CC Permit and travels both east and west quite often without issue. Research the necessitation of relinquishing your Florida permit for a Tennessee issue before you do anything rash.

    84. I have my South Carolina Permit and moved to Tennessee recently. What do I need to do?

    85. am I allowed to carry on my property? Also, if I drive to a “No Gun Zone” and park, locking my gun inside my car, am I in violation?

      1. You’re vehicle being your property you may keep it in your vehicle and not be in Violation. But it may not be removed from your vehicle

        1. You are partially incorrect. Although a weapon can not be removed from the vehicle in general without a CCW it CAN legally be transported discreetly back and forth between your vehicle and your home.

      1. Author

        They must follow the same procedure as every one else and get a CCW permit.

        1. In Tennessee (at least) you also get a huge discount for military service, so mention that at the DMV.

    86. This state has always allowed open carry without a permit. Even before the fee grabbing permit process began. As a law abiding citizen and veteran I demand to be allowed to openly carry at my own convenience again. Without regulation.
