Guns in parking lots among TN new laws

NASHVILLE, TN (AP) - A measure that allows people with handgun carry permits to store firearms in their vehicles no matter where they are parked is among a number of new state laws that take effect Monday.

The gun law will go into effect despite questions about what it means for employment law in Tennessee. The measure allows workers to store guns in cars while parked in employers' lots.

Other measures taking effect include a law that allows school districts to let people with police training be armed in schools and one that would require incoming students at public higher education institutions to show proof they've had meningitis shots.
