Guns in Bars Law Takes Effect

Nashville, TN – On just its first (second) day in effect, a new law that allows handguns in Tennessee bars and restaurants is being met with opposition from some establishments' owners. Many bar and restaurant owners are already taking steps to prohibit the weapons by using a provision of the law that allows them to post signs saying guns are not allowed. At least one county tried and failed to gain an injunction to block the law.
