The Tennessee House of Representatives approved a bill allowing people to carry loaded guns on their boats.

The bill favored today wouldn't apply to government or private boats with written policies prohibiting guns and ammunition.

GOP bill sponsor Representative Micah Van Huss said the current law is unclear but the bill would let law-abiding Tennesseans defend themselves.  

Van Huss said the bill expands a previous law letting people have guns and ammunition in their cars. The measure heads to Senate.
