  1. We would have been better off if the gun organizations tried to first remove the 'gun free' areas for people with enhanced carry permits VS promoting restricted permitless carry. Issues like college carry and 'no gun signs' were still not fixed for enhanced permits. I would not be surprised if a lot of government and non government properties in Memphis and Nashville put up legally binding no gun signs this summer when permitless carry becomes law. Unfortunately, those signs will also make a location off limits for someone with an enhanced permit.
  2. Benelli montefeltro autoloaders seem to hold up well to high volume dove shooting in South America. Beretta semi autos are pretty popular in clay target shooting.
  3. You might want to keep your handgun carry permit because you still cannot carry in a park without a permit.
  4. I am surprised the gun organizations thought it was more beneficial to pass a law with heavily restricted permitless carry (looks like you cannot even carry in a park legally) instead of fixing the problems with the present enhanced permit such as: A parent cannot legally carry when visiting his kid at college. A person cannot legally carry at night visiting a sick family member in the hospital due to no gun signs. An working adult cannot carry at the local community college when taking night classes. Some state office buildings legally ban carry due to the no gun signs.
  5. Mandatory gun classes in K-12 schools are not necessary. If kids are interested in shooting, many schools and churches offer hunter's education. A lot of schools have trap shooting teams. Some kids just may not be interested in guns or the parents may not want the kids to learn. Better to spend time and effort removing handgun carry permit restrictions for adults who choose to carry than force kids to take gun classes at school.
  6. From a practical sense, more would be accomplished by removing carry restrictions on the enhanced carry permit VS having heavily restricted constitutional carry. The enhanced carry permit restrictions should have been removed first.
  7. Maybe a large national gun organization can lobby the state politicians in Nashville to fix this issue. It is kind of pathetic that you cannot carry a gun at the place you purchase a permit to carry.
  8. The bill is not constitutional carry at all when only Tennessee residents can carry without a permit. Constitutional carry is when all legal people can carry openly or concealed.
  9. I'm not surprised that the bill as of now allows a national gun org to pat politicians on the back in public for something that could be pretty restrictive. You have to remember there is a thread where people are discussing if they can carry WITH a permit at a driver license office because there may or may not be legal no gun signs. The national gun organization possibly endorsing this so called constitutional carry law has not even fixed a dumb law like that for people with carry permits or campus carry with a permit.
  10. Mississippi has constitutional carry, a concealed license without training, and an actual enhanced license (not like the TN enhanced) where you can carry on school and college property legally. I have yet to hear of many problems out of good people there. I hope the politicians and gun organizations can get behind that kind of system in TN this year.
  11. I would like to see the enhanced permit actually enhanced to remove carry restrictions for people that want to carry in places right now that you cannot carry like colleges. Legal constitutional carry is the right step forward for this state. Good people have carried concealed and do carry all across this country without a license for protection. Other states that border TN do not seem to have a problem with constitutional carry.
  12. Change state law so that this 'enhanced' permit is an actual enhanced permit so that we do not have to leave our gun in a car at places where it is now illegal to carry. It is difficult for a gun to be stolen when it is concealed on someone instead of left in a car.
  13. Maybe the pro gun conservative republican legislators should turn the enhanced carry permit into a real enhanced permit this spring. That way people with the enhanced permits do not have to leave guns in their cars at places like colleges and other properties. That is what enhanced permits are for in other states. Why would that not work in Tennessee?
  14. States like Mississippi that have enhanced licenses are actually enhanced licenses. You can carry just about anywhere in public legally with an enhanced license in Mississippi, such as K-12 schools and colleges. That obviously did not happen with this 'enhanced' permit name change that we got in Tennessee last year.
  15. In my opinion, the politicians pulled this new two permit system for a couple reasons last year. One, the politicians did not want to of course allow people to carry without licenses. That scares a lot of these fake 'pro gun' so called conservatives. Two, the politicians also did not want to make the current permit system better as in cutting the restrictions on where people cannot legally carry with a permit. Legal college campus carry was not passed. People still question "Is this a legal sign?" when people in most states do not have such a silly concern. A major gun lobby
