Bill would allow gun-owners to carry without permit


NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Gun owners in Tennessee may be to legally carry a gun without a permit if some state lawmakers get their way this legislative session.

Rutherford County republican Rick Womick is pushing a bill that would allow legal gun-owners to carry their weapons without a permit, either concealed or not.

People carrying without a permit would still have to follow laws that ban weapons in schools and businesses, or having a gun while drinking alcohol.

The bill would need to pass both the House and the Senate and plenty of debate is expected.
