The new proposed gun law in Tennessee changes some of the wording from handgun to just gun. This includes rifles and other long guns. The age limit has been lowered to 18, with no permit required for anyone. This flies in the face of all the Tennesseans who were required to have a permit in order to carry a handgun. They went to gun safety classes, firing ranges, had background checks, were fingerprinted, photographed, and paid for it all.

You now have to be 21 in order to buy a pack of cigarettes. Under this new open carry law, anyone 18 or older will be able to carry an AK-47 down the streets of Nashville without a permit or license of any kind.
