Just wanted to let everyone know, the Tennessee Resturaunt Carry bill (HB0962/SB1127) was sent to Governpr Phil Bredeson for signing on May 19th of 2009.
The governor has, by law, 10 days (not counting Sundays) to either sign or veto this bill, or it becomes law by default. There was a veto-proof majority that approved this bill in both the Tennessee House and Senate. Barring a very unexpected veto, Tennesseans with Handgun Carry Permits will finally be able to carry their sidearms into places that server alcohol for on-site consumption (as long as they don't drink themselves).
So, Mike, are you ready to change that map color for us? :celebrate
