Tennessee: Bill That Would Help Protect Those With Restraining Orders Goes To Governor

posted on May 25, 2017

A piece of legislation designed to help protect the lives of those who feel endangered enough to take out a protective order has passed the Tennessee legislature and awaits action by Gov. Bill Haslam.

If signed, the new law would permit those granted an order of protection and who can legally possess a firearm to carry the gun for 21 days without obtaining a permit. Victims have 21 days to apply for a 60-day temporary carry permit.

The temporary 60-day carry permit still requires a background check and does not apply across state lines. But it does allow victims time to apply for and receive a permanent carry permit from the state.
