A bill to allow residents in Tennessee to carry a handgun openly without a permit has passed in the state Senate. The question now is, will it pass the House?

State Representative Rick Womick of Rutherford County recently described the bill to WGNS… 


The bill will also allow for residents to transport firearms that are loaded. If passed in the House, residents could openly carry handguns without a permit as soon as September 1, 2014. Those who want to conceal their handgun, would still need a gun / carry permit. 

According to the summary of the bill introduced by Sen. Mae Beavers:

Firearms and Ammunition - As introduced, provides, effective September 1, 2014, that only those persons who want to carry a handgun concealed are required to have a handgun permit, and permits conversion of handgun carry permit upon its expiration to a concealed carry permit by regular renewal process. - Amends TCA Title 10, Chapter 7; Title 33; Title 38; Title 39; Title 40 and Title 70.
