    Tennessee gun laws

    Good morning:

    I am going to be traveling into Tennessee Sat. I will be traveling at night. I am getting on in years and I just don't feel
    comfortable on the road without some protection. I do not have a concealed weapons permit for Ky. Where I live I am
    comfortable carrying openly.

    I have searched this site, but I can't find an answer to my problem. If I carry a weapon in my locked glove box, will I be
    legal in the state of Tennessee, or will I be in deep trouble should I get caught?

    Don't carry in Tennessee without a permit............

    Open Carry is only legal for those with a valid permit/license to carry a concealed firearm. Carry in a vehicle in Tennessee requires a valid permit/license to carry.
    I am not a lawyer, I study the history of gun control laws.

    This should be in the Tennessee forum.

    But I do think that Midwest is right.
    No man alive can beat me in a fair fight: It's not fair to chase a man down and beat him.

    Don't delete the post, I'm sure this might be a question that will come up again.
