Tennessee Right-To-Carry Protection On College Parking Lots Moves Forward

A Tennessee Senate committee has approved legislation to protect lawful gun owners who wish to store firearms in their locked vehicles on college campus parking lots.

Senate Bill 1991, introduced by Republican state Sen. Brian Kelsey, effectively expands Tennessee’s two-year-old parking-lot protection law by declaring, “No public post-secondary institution shall take any adverse or disciplinary action against an employee or student … for such person’s transportation and storage of a firearm or ammunition in compliance with [the parking-lot protection law] while on or using a parking area located on property owned, used or operated by the postsecondary institution.” 

Nine states currently allow Right-to-Carry permit holders to exercise their Second Amendment rights on college campuses, but Tennessee isn’t among them ... yet.
