New Gun Law in Tennessee

Beginning Jan. 1, Tennessee gun owners will have a second option when applying for handgun permits.
The state currently has one type of handgun permit that allows users to carry a firearm open and concealed on their person. It requires a $100 fee and an 8-hour hands-on class, among other background check requirements.
That permit doesn’t change under the new law, however, it will be renamed an “enhanced handgun permit.”
But starting in 2020, a new, second option will be available.
It’s called a “concealed only handgun permit” and as the name implies, it only allows permit holders to carry a weapon if it is concealed.
The requirements for the new permit are different too. Most notably, it costs $35 less and only requires a 90-minute training course with no hands-on component.
Some gun store owners said the change might confuse customers.
