Tennesse wins

TENNESSEE: Carroll County Tables Anti-Gun Ordinance! The Carroll County Commission was scheduled to hear an ordinance on Monday, November 9 that would have banned the possession of firearms on county properties, even by those possessing Right-to-Carry permits. Because of overwhelming opposition by NRA members and gun owners, the ordinance was tabled. We would like to thank those NRA members and firearm owners who took the time to make their voices heard! Please continue to visit www.nraila.org for up-to-date legislative alerts.

Great news

Good for the citizens of Tennessee & the support of the NRA-ILA!

My boyfriend and I work for a landscaping company owned by my father. We work exclusively outside in the neighborhood, not entering anyone's home. The company has no policy on handguns. A few people have complained about my boyfriend's legal weapon, which he is licensed to carry. Our contract with the neighborhood specifies nothing about weapons on the property at all. Can these complainers cause problems for my dad's company? Do they have grounds at all of trying to revoke our contract?

If your boyfriend is in a work detail the people whom he is doing work for can use the "castle doctrine" and without permission from each owner of each dwelling whoes boundry lines he crosses, he is in violation of law...also anyone in the "hood" can say he is a threat

I have reasons for the things I do, just don't expect them to be reasonable

We don't work for private homeowners. Our contract exclusively covers the common grounds of the neighborhood. We ONLY go on private property with permission of the homeowner, and this is extremely rare. The neighborhood itself is technically the private property of the HOA, but it is still all a public area. So if someone claims that a person with a legal carry permit is a threat, they can be denied the right to carry their gun? And this can jeopardize Dad's contract?

Have daughters, and appreciate your concern. first, good going teaming up with a guy who carries. Now, here's the deal, it's not about the law in this instance. You have the law on your side. The issue is those damn HOA's and if you don't think that they can't hurt pops contract think again. I would get hold of the head of the HOA. explain the issue so he/she has "cover" if a resident gets upset. And also tell them that the BF will stop carying if its a problem. This is a real world issue Charis, and if this was Dad then i would hope he kept to his rights. But fact is that all of those telling you to fight for your rights don't have to face pop when he loses his contract. HOA's are a huge pain, and have way to much power. But they will just cancel the contract and not site the gun issue so they don't have to fight the NRA (and all of us who support gun rights) so do pop a favor and talk with HOA first, that way if there is a porblem you have a chance to stop it from costing dad (and you) money.

a man has to hold his word, hold his beliefs, and hold a good sight picture.
