Gov. Bill Lee signs permitless carry bill
Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee has signed legislation that will allow qualified residents 21 and older to carry a firearm either open or concealed without a permit.
Lee in a tweet Thursday said he signed what he calls the constitutional carry bill because “it shouldn’t be hard for law-abiding Tennesseans to exercise their second-amendment rights.”
I signed constitutional carry today because it shouldn’t be hard for law-abiding Tennesseans to exercise their #2A rights. Thank you members of the General Assembly and @NRA for helping get this done. pic.twitter.com/xv2ZenOEZq— Gov. Bill Lee (@GovBillLee) April 8, 2021
The bill also permits anyone 18 and older in the military to carry open or concealed. The law will take effect July 1st.
