More than 190,000 Tennesseans have permits, issued by the state, to carry handguns. . . .
"Their behavior records is better than our uniformed police," Niceley tells NewsChannel 5's chief investigative reporter Phil Williams. "We've had no problems. We've not had shoot-outs at the OK Corral, like some of these people predicted."
It's a sentiment echoed by state Rep. Eddie Bass, D-Prospect.
"From a law enforcement perspective and with 20 years, I've never, never had a problem with a gun permit holder," the former sheriff says. . . .
