Guns and Recreation: State Wants to Overrule Cities on Guns in Parks

Feb 17, 2014

Five years ago, Tennessee lawmakers voted to allow guns in parks, but gave cities the right to opt out of the law. Now, they're shooting down the city veto.

Lawmakers say they simply want the law to be more uniform across the state. But others worry that it could mean guns in parks that overlap school zones, among other concerns.

In this week's Capitol Hill Conversation, WPLN’s Bradley George discusses the politics of “guns in parks” with Andrea Zelenski. She covers state government for the Nashville Post and Nashville Scene.
