While we agitate over imaginary threats from terrorists we are standing by while our children are being wounded and killed by weapons in their own homes. Currently it is NOT illegal to store a loaded gun near children in TN. There are no requirements related to safety at present.

Most recently, a 5-year-old Goodlettsville boy was accidentally killed by a sibling in their home.

According to police, a dad left the gun near the children when he went to the kitchen.

Right now, Joslyn Roth says it’s not illegal for a parent to leave a loaded gun unattended even when children are nearby.
