2A Wins In Tennessee Court Battle

posted on January 31, 2017

Tennessee gun owners won some of their Second Amendment rights back with the recent settlement in Vreeland v. City of Knoxville

At issue was the City of Knoxville’s rule prohibiting law-abiding Tennessee gun owners from carrying concealed firearms for self-defense in Chilhowee Park & Exposition Center. According to NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action, the settlement strikes a reasonable balance between the right to carry firearms in public parks within Knoxville, as guaranteed by Tennessee law, and the city’s use of Chilhowee Park as a secure facility for private or ticketed events. 

“This is an important settlement that reaffirms law-abiding Tennesseans have a right to defend themselves throughout the state,” said Jennifer Baker, director of public affairs for NRA-ILA. “Crime can happen wherever, whenever, and Tennessee law protects the right of residents to defend themselves the best way they see fit. With the conclusion of this legal matter, Tennesseans’ rights remain protected.”
