TN Concealed Carry Holders May Soon Have a Legal "Out"

For those of you in Tennessee..... This from Guns.com

The bill’s sponsors say this legislation acts as legal insurance in case of harmless accidents (like missing a posted land sign or not noticing a business is “No Guns Allowed.”  Rep. told reporters over the weekend:

“First of all, if you’re a licensed permit holder, and you have a gun, and you were not supposed to have it in a place, that was posted – you didn’t see the posting — and for whatever reason it was found that you had a gun. And no nefarious things were happening, you hadn’t broke the law any other way, but you happened to have a gun there. We’re just saying that you have a defense, an affirmative defense, in the state of Tennessee.”
