Tennessee Gov. Haslam Signs Lifetime Permit Bill

posted on May 2, 2015

With the guns-in-parks bill all settled, Gov. Bill Haslam of Tennessee has signed another key piece of gun-rights legislation into law. A handgun carry permit in the state was formerly valid for a maximum of four years, but the new law allows residents 21 and older to pay $500 for a lifetime permit. Lifetime permit holders will be subject to automatic criminal background checks every five years.

This is good news for Tennessee gun owners who want to spend less time worrying about compliance for firearm laws and more time at the range.
