Ruling on Tennessee Restaurant Carry

This ruling is certainly a setback, but it doesn’t yet change the law for most of the state, as far as I can tell. SayUncle is checking with his peeps too [UPDATE: Looks like it only applies to Davidson County]. Hopefully like National Park Carry, this will be a short lived victory for the other side, one way or another.

  1. I agree with the judge in saying the law is too ambiguous. The idea of allowing guns in establishments which serve at least one meal, five days a week reminds me of the AWB.

    I guess both sides have difficulty at times legislating what they want.

  2. The problem is, TN law makes no distinction between a bar and a restaurant. Since CCL holders aren’t allowed to drink while carrying, I don’t see any reason to try to make the distinction.

  3. I have yet to figure out from AK statutes the exact way to tell a “bar” from a “restaurant”. If it isn’t obvious by how much food they serve and what they call themselves I have started checking their liquor license type.

    If I weren’t lazy it would probably be worth it to put together a list and run it by the AG.
