Missouri has had this ruling for a long time, they consider your vehicle and extension of your home and I feel it is a very good ruling. I don't believe it can be concealed IF you do not have a CCW though. It has to be in plain site if stopped by a LEO.

SECTION 1. Tennessee Code Annotated, Section 39-17-1307, is amended by deleting

or purchasing a firearm by § 39-17-1316; and
( B ) Is in lawful possession of the motor vehicle.
(2) As used in this subsection:
(A) “Motor vehicle” has the same meaning as defined in § 55-1-103.
( B ) “Motor vehicle” does not include any motor vehicle that is:
(i) Owned or leased by a governmental or private entity that has adopted a written policy prohibiting firearms or

Somebody in Tennessee high up needs to let law enforcement in on this. It's not a known fact for sure.

New amendment takes effect July 1st, LEO's will be informed. I think Kentucky has been this way for a long time.

The idea that you will be able to do this without a permit is not true. Please don't get caught without a permit.


Go read the new laws. No permit will be required after 7/1/2014.

Yeah, some boat. Curious to say what the official word on this is.

Another thing to be mindful of if this does allow carry in your vehicle without a permit, is don't expect every LEO in the state to be aware of the law. You might want to carry a copy of these laws with you if you intend to have a firearm in your vehcile without a permit.

It's amazing the phrase "ignorance of the law is no excuse" doesnt apply to those whose job is it to enforce them.

Since the law doesn't go into effect until July 1, it is hard to see where any law enforcement person has misapplied it up to now. It might be better to wait to sling the barbs until after some LEO has messed it up.

I just wanted to back track a little on this...

I've spoken to a local LEO and he said to his knowledge, this didn't mean that you could carry a handgun in a vehicle without a permit. He asked another local LEO, and that officer said the same thing. I even showed him the text of the amendment and the piece of TCA code, and he still wasn't sure.

I contacted the local District Attorney's office and they said they had never heard of this amendment and that I should contact the Department of Safety.

I contacted them, and they said they were aware of this amendment, but had not been given direction from the governor's office on exactly what this means. They said they are still waiting on clarification themselves and suggested I call back in a week or two.

I know another DA personally and have sent it to him to get his 2 cents.


I guess my point is - do your homework and make sure you know what the law really means. Don't take someone's word on the internet. Although it seems pretty clear to me, I could easily be wrong...

(or go get your carry permit and don't worry about it)
