Tennessee Bill Protecting Gun Owners On Campus Parking Lots Nears Passage

The Tennessee Senate has passed legislation protecting Right-to-Carry permit holders who wish to transport or store firearms in their vehicles on campus parking lots.

Senate Bill 1991 would extend the parking lot protection law passed two years ago to public colleges and universities in Tennessee by allowing employees and students to store firearms and ammunition in their locked vehicles on campus without fear of legal or disciplinary action. A nearly identical companion bill, House Bill 2131, has already been passed by the Tennessee House.
