Interesting idea. Alaska does it and it works for them. I don't seewhy we would be any different.
I still can't understand why (even though I have an HCP) I can't carry a baton, a knife with a blade over four inches, a knife with a double edge, or a rifle or shotgun in my truck with a round in the chamber.
I also can't understand why I can't carry my defensive handgun with me when I go bowhunting...I can carry a muzzleloading handgun during muzzleloader season though!:P
Well, it's because the mindset of TN is that carrying weapons is generally illegal except for certain exceptions.
Batons require separate training and permit. (I do hold a valid baton certification myself.)
Four inches, annoying, but better than 2 inches.
Who told you that you can't carry a double-edged knife ?
I agree that the it's stupid that a person can carrying a chambered handgun, but same individual cannot carry a chambered longgun. (Perhaps a future law change ?)
Yes, the hunting restrictions are asinine.
