Via Adam Groves, we learn there is a push for the restaurant carry bill again:

Tennessee gun rights advocates will continue to push legislation allowing gun permit holders to carry firearms into restaurants that serve alcohol, said James Folkner, founder of the new Chattanooga chapter for the Tennessee Firearms Association.

Under the current law, gun owners can enter an eatery and break the law without knowing the restaurant serves alcohol, he said. The bill’s intent is to keep gun owners "from becoming criminals just when we go out to eat," said Mr. Folkner, a 21-year-old University of Tennessee at Chattanooga senior.

As Neal Knox opined about a similar bill in Arizona (paraphrased): the anti-gunners call it the guns in bars bill and the pro-gunners call it the breakfast at Denny’s bill.
