Tennessee CCW Permits Way UP

Okay the news coverage in the Volunteer State is a bit misleading. The reporters are writing it as if you need a "permit" to own a gun in Tennessee.

You don't.

But as in many other states, you do need a license to carry a concealed firearm. And that is what this story is really about. According to state records, the number of Tennesseans licensed by the state to carry concealed increased by nearly 51,000 people last year -- a 23 percent increase -- to 268,711.

A pretty safe place to be these days. Read all about it at KnoxNews.com.
