Tennessee: Localities Already Opting-Out of Park Carry Law!

Friday, June 26, 2009

As anticipated, Tennessee counties and municipalities have started to opt-out of the park carry law passed by the Tennessee General Assembly during the 2009 session. 

 

Please contact your local officials and respectfully ask them not to create a confusing patchwork of laws that will close off local parks to law-abiding permit holders, who simply wish to be able to protect themselves and their families. 

 

If you have any information on Tennessee counties and municipalities taking steps to opt-out of this important self-defense law, please contact the NRA-ILA’s State and Local Affairs Division.  Contact information is provided below.
