TN’s new permitless gun law

From WPLN:

“In Tennessee, a new law allows most adults to carry handguns without a permit. This will have “disastrous consequences,” said one district attorney, especially in a state with high rates of domestic violence murders. Domestic violence already comprises half of all violent crime in Nashville, and existing state gun laws make it easy for even convicted abusers to keep their guns.”
