Haslam IDs key to new gun law

by Nashville Business Journal  |  published on December 5, 2012

Gov. Bill Haslam said the key to reaching an agreement on a bill to allow employees to store guns in their cars at work is to exclude college campuses, The Associated Press reports.

A bill in the previous session of the Tennessee General Assembly was supported by the National Rifle Association, but was blocked by the state’s business lobby, which said such a law would infringe on property rights.

Some of Tennessee’s most prominent companies spoke against the bill, including Bridgestone Americas, FedEx and Volkswagen.

Haslam said his office will fight to keep campuses out of the legislation, but would otherwise not take a lead role on the guns bill.
