Advertisement

NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE — The Governor of Tennessee, Bill Haslam, signed legislation this week that allows residents of Tennessee to receive a permit to carry a firearm that does not expire.

The House passed the measure 90-3, and the Senate approved it 30-2. Before this legislation, permits expired every 4 years.

Because of the new legislation, residents 21 years old and older can get a lifetime permit for $500. A background check will be done every 5 years. The state Safety Department can revoke or suspend a permit at anytime they feel the permit holder no longer meets the requirements.

    $500.00 seems excessive, any infractions will flag a ccw. The perp will automatically be run through the system revealing their carry permit which if found guilty, will revoke permit, a 5 yr check, is an excuse to charge the amount now required for lifetime permit. A one time simple filing fee is all needed to put one on record, after that, the system will upgrade when necessary resulting in revocation if necessary.

    They should offer cheaper alternatives for those who are struggling like a 2 year permit. It seems to me the initial high price of a permit will keep guns out of many peoples hands, thereby enacting a form of sneaky gun control through prohibitive cost.
