Tennessee’s Restaurant Carry Bill, SB 1901, to be Voted on by the Senate
Last week, SB 1901 passed the Senate Judiciary Committee by a vote of 7-1. This legislation will make Tennessee one of over 30 states that allow permit holders to carry self-defense firearms in restaurants and other establishments that serve alcohol. In addition to providing a means of self-defense, SB 1901 will help to prevent the theft of firearms that must currently be stored in vehicles outside of these establishments.
