Tennessee Campus Carry Becomes Law

posted on May 4, 2016

Faculty and staff workers at Tennessee public colleges and universities can now legally carry on campus grounds with a permit, despite the governor not signing the measure.

Republican Gov. Bill Haslam said he allowed the unsigned bill to become law because he has “a preference for systems and institutions to be able to make their own decisions regarding security issues on campus.” He added, “I hope that as a state we will monitor the impact of this new law and listen to the feedback of higher education leaders responsible for operationalizing it.”

Student Zac Nelson told Fox 17, “As long as they're trained and know what to do I don't think it will be a big issue.”
