Tennessee makes it possible to carry a handgun without training or a background check for most adults 21 or older


Summary List Placement

Hours after President Joe Biden rolled out a series of executive orders aimed at curbing gun violence, Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee signed a bill allowing most residents over 21 in the state to carry a gun without a permit or a background check.

Tennessee becomes the nineteenth US state to have permit-less gun carry laws.

The law will go into effect on July 1, 2021, and was a top legislative priority for Lee. In an announcement about the bill, the governor thanked the National Rifle Association for their help with the bill.

I signed constitutional carry today because it shouldn’t be hard for law-abiding Tennesseans to exercise their #2A rights. Thank you members of the General Assembly and @NRA for helping get this done. pic.twitter.com/xv2ZenOEZq
