Semi-retired like Vito Corleone before the heart attack. Consiglieri to J.Kb and AWA. I lived in a Gun Control Paradise: It sucked and got people killed. I do believe that Freedom scares the political elites.

    1. Oh yes.

      Guns in Parks. Pursuant to T.C.A. § 39-17-1311, it is legal for persons with a valid handgun carry permit to carry a handgun while within or on a public park, natural area, historic park, nature trail, campground, forest, greenway, waterway or other similar public place owned or operated by the state, a county, a municipality, or instrumentality of the state, a county, or municipality. However, it is illegal for a person with a handgun carry permit to carry a handgun on such property while it is in use by any board of education, school, college or university board of trustees, regents, or directors for the administration of any public or private educational institution for the purpose of conducting an athletic event or other school-related activity on an athletic field, permanent or temporary, including but not limited to, a football or soccer field, tennis court, basketball court, track, running trail, Frisbee field, or similar multi-use field; and the person knew or should have known the athletic activity or school-related activity was taking place on the property; or failed to take reasonable steps to leave the area of the athletic event or school-related activity after being informed of or becoming aware of its use. See Op. Tenn. Att’y Gen.15-63 (July 29, 2015) (Possession of Firearms in Public Parks Owned by Counties and Municipalities).

  1. They had a similar law on the books in Indiana when I lived there, but not just parks. Any “facility” being used for a school trip (museums, restaurants, malls, etc) were covered. The people of the gun called field trips “Roving Gun Free Zones” and it was frustrating as hell to deal with.

    1. True, but illegal is still illegal.
      .
      It’s the principle of the thing. Why should a location be legal-to-carry one moment and illegal-to-carry the next, simply by the unexpected arrival of an unrelated third party, particularly one with whom you have zero intention of interacting?

Only one rule: Don't be a dick.
