Attorney General Herbert Slatery said people cannot bring guns onto any property – including private property – if that property is being used for a school event, The Tennessean reports. "For example, if a private school were using church grounds to hold a festival encompassing the entire church property, gun possession would be prohibited on the entire grounds. However, if the school were using only a discrete and separate building on church grounds, other portions of the church's property might not fall within the scope of (the law)," Slatery wrote in the opinion issued Sept. 18.
