Guns in Trunk Bill Passes House

House Bill 118 passed the Tennessee House of Representatives on a 72-22 vote this morning. The bill would allow the nearly 400,000 Tennesseans with handgun carry permits to carry their weapons in their cars anywhere they go, including employer’s parking lots. The legislation, sponsored by state Rep. Jeremy Faison, R-Cosby, now heads to Gov. Bill Haslam’s desk. The Tennessean has the story.
