Poll: Tennessean's Don't Want Guns in Bars

A law that allows handguns into bars and restaurants that serve alcohol is proving to be unpopular with Tennesseans.

Seven in 10 voters in a survey by Mason-Dixon Polling and Research said they oppose a law passed this year that lets people with concealed-carry permits take weapons into any establishment that sells alcohol.

Supporters say the law will make the state safer, but voters said in interviews that mixing guns and alcohol is too dangerous.

“No one wants them there,” said Carol Yager, a Brentwood woman who took part in the poll taken by Mason-Dixon for the Tennessee Newspaper Network.
