Carrying your Handgun without Permit might bring Lesser Penalty

  Email   Print

The Tennessee House has passed legislation that would lower the penalty to $250 for a first offense of toting a gun without a handgun carry permit.

The chamber voted 72-20 Monday on the bill. The bill was amended to let officers decide whether or not to confiscate ammunition.

Bill sponsor Rep. Micah Van Huss said under current law, it's up to a $500 fine, confiscation of the gun and possible imprisonment.

The bill now heads to the Senate.
