Question description

The materials in this posting were taken from the Memphis Commercial Appeal- Jan. 5th, 2008. This article in the paper theorized that the cause of the jump in justifiable homicides in Memphis was in part due to "The thugs have started running into people who can protect themselves." More people are getting carry permits and more people know their rights. As many as 35,000 people in Shelby County have carry permits, which means they have had some training on the laws governing self-defense. It is also theorized that the education received by those who carry permits trickles down to friends and family members. Tennessee law gives citizens the right to defend themselves if they have a reasonable and imminent fear of harm. They can also employ deadly force to protect another person. When someone claims self-defense, it is the burden of the prosecutors to refute that claim. (This message does not allege to correctly quote law - research that for yourself.) In your posting address these issues:

1. What is required in the state of Tennessee to receive a permit to carry a gun? (State the source of your information but you do not have to hyperlink.)

2. Have you considered receiving a permit and carrying a gun? Why? 

3. What reservations do you have about receiving a permit and carrying a gun yourself?

4. What reservations do you have about members of the general public receiving a permit and carrying a gun?

5. If more people carried guns do you think that car jackings, robberies, home break-ins, assaults, etc. would decrease? Explain your answer. 

6. The state of Tennessee just passed legislation to allow licensed permit holders to take guns into state parks. Do you agree or disagree with this? Explain your answer.
