Gun Ban at TN Capitol to Continue Under Gov Lee

Gov.-elect Bill Lee says he’ll continue to keep guns banned in the Tennessee Capitol when he takes over the top office later this week.

Lee tells The Daily Memphian he won’t change the current policy put into place by outgoing Republican Gov. Bill Haslam. People with state-issued handgun carry permits will still be allowed to be armed within Tennessee’s legislative office complex.

Lee didn’t comment about potential push-back from gun rights groups.
