    There are basically 5 places that are off limits by TN law for those with a HCP to carry.

    Inside any place that serves alcohol for onsite consumption. (39-17-1305)
    In any room where a judicial proceeding is taking place. (39-17-1306)
    Schools. (39-17-1309 and 39-17-1310)
    Public Parks and recreational property. (39-17-1311)
    Any place with a properly posted sign per 39-17-1359

    The law about carry where alcohol is served could change on July 1st.

    A bill that would allow carry in places that serve alcohol has passed in the House, but with restrictions of no carry between 11:00pm - 5:00am in those places or any place that is age restricted. The Senate version of the same bill is scheduled to be voted on tomorrow, but that version has removed those restrictions. So not sure what the final version will be.

    But whatever passes, if it does, will go into effect July 1st

    So is this a legal sign? It at the airport which I though one was legal to carry...

    IMO it's legal.

    I haven't been to the Nashville Airport in years, but I have heard others say that part of the terminal is posted while other parts are not. So depending where the signs are posted, some parts could be off-limits while others are not.

    Legally the law also that all entrances commonly used by the public must be posted to prohibit carry in that area. So if you go through an entrance to an area that wasn't posted, even though other entrances were posted, you could argue that it's not a legal posting and/or you didn't know. Of course there is probably a 50/50 chance as to whether you make that argument to the officer or the judge.

    I second Fallguy's analysis. The sign looks legal to me. All public entrances are required to be posted (assuming the property wants to ban weapons from the whole property). However, a property owner can only post signs on a specific room or area if he/she chooses. (I haven't seen this myself. All posted buildings I've seen have been posted in their entirety.)

    This sign was on all the doors coming from the rental car drop off. I also saw some on the doors at the front drive.
