Tennessee may be ending gun free zones in Bars

WSMV in Nashville has this:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- A proposal that would allow Tennessee handgun permit holders to take their weapons into establishments that serve alcohol -- as long as they don't drink -- is headed to the governor for his consideration.
The Senate on Thursday approved a conference committee report on a 24-7 vote.
Both chambers agreed to leave out provisions that would impose an 11 p.m. to 5 a.m. curfew for carrying handguns where alcohol is served and keep a handgun ban in place for bars that restrict entry to people over 21 years old.
However, Democratic Senate Minority Leader Jim Kyle of Memphis said he voted against the proposal because "anyway you look at it, guns and alcohol don't mix." . . . . .
