I live in Perry County where Linden is and I can tell you that the Sheriffs office goes by TN State Statutes. You might be checked for a valid permit while in the county by a deputy, but once he/she has varified that you are holding a valid permit they send you on your way. I'm acquainted with most of the deputies here and their pretty cool about OC. So are all of the businesses and citizens here. I OC everyday all over the place and no one seems to notice much.
