Tennessee lawmakers are about to take aim on another gun bill on Capitol Hill, this time concerning guns in parking lots.
Second amendment advocates say the bill, SB 3002, is about their right of self-defense, but most people can agree it's a conflict of property rights, gun rights and personal safety.
The bill would allow drivers to carry a permitted weapon into employer or public parking lots if the firearm is stored out of sight in a locked vehicle.
The bill received mixed reviews at a Vanderbilt University parking garage Thursday night.
Student Jennifer Hood told Nashville's News 2, "We have had incidents of people being in the garage or girls being assaulted in the garage, so it's a little bit scary to think they may have a weapon or something like that, but at the same time, I have to protect myself."
"My concern that someone would have a woman to attack me," said medical student Monique Simpson, "but I don't have a permit to carry a gun, but if I had one, it might make me feel safer."
