Constitutional carry in Tennessee is moving forward despite opposition from several law enforcement groups and Democrats.

From WKRN: 

Legislation being pushed by Governor Bill Lee under the ‘Constitutional Carry’ title will let Tennesseans ages 21 and older to open and conceal carry a gun without a permit.

“I can guarantee you we are making Tennessee a safer place tomorrow than it is today,” House Republican Majority Leader William Lamberth said.

Republicans say not only are they allowing for more Second Amendment freedoms, but they’re also punishing those who misuse firearms.

“We are adding penalties and increasing the penalties dramatically for anyone that steals a gun, anyone that’s using a gun improperly, felons in possession of guns,” Lamberth said.

Constitutional carry has had explosive success in recent years around the country and it looks like it will pass in Tennessee next.

Constitutional carry has passed in Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Idaho, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, New Hampshire, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Utah, Vermont, West Virginia, Wyoming.
