Good morning, Nashville. We can’t believe we’re still talking about the Guns in Parks bill, but yesterday the State Attorney General made a few more clarifications about the ways in which the new law can and can’t be enforced. The verdict? If you tote a gun in a city that’s chosen to opt out of the law and ban guns in parks, you can still be charged under state law even if there are no signs posted. However, you’re welcome to drive through a park with a gun as long as you stay in the car. Easy enough, right?
