Understanding the gun rights and state laws that apply to you is crucial in becoming a responsible citizen and firearm owner. Tennessee is home to 6.9 million people, 9.8% of whom are licensed to concealed carry (CC). The state has issued around 681,000 CC permits as of early August 2021.
Understanding reciprocity – how your gun rights translate across state lines – is vital, however. Tennessee’s stance on reciprocity is complex and varies according to the individual’s status, with some states receiving no reciprocity at all. The minimum age to CC in Tennessee is 21, and the license is valid for eight years.
