As I understand it, it is already legal for non-student adults with a HCP to have a handgun locked in their car on school property. Also, unless your office parking lot is posted against firearms, you can legally have your gun locked in your car there.
This bill only makes it legal for an employee to have a gun locked in a car in a parking lot that is posted against firearms and takes civil liability from an employer if an employee misuses a gun on their property.
I don't think this bill will affect the lives of very many Tennesseans with HCPs. An employer can still ask to search your private vehicle and fire you if you refuse, or for no reason at all.
