ABSTRACT
The article reports on the possible effects of a legislation allowing guns into restaurants in Tennessee. It says that the law allows gun owners to carry concealed firearms inside restaurants that serve alcohol, but also allows restaurant owners to post signs that ban guns from their premises. The legislation is said to cause liability problems, since it was not made clear if a gun restriction sign exempts a business owner from liability.
