    I am traveling to Gatlinburg soon for a few days with the family, I've researched the concealed carry laws of Tennessee and I have a couple of questions.

    I've read that I can carry into any restaurant that serves alcohol unless posted ... my question is what qualifies as a legal sign?

    Also I read on another board that the Ripley's Aquarium was posted but that they provided lock boxes for securing your pistol, can anyone confirm that this is true?

    Any 'Gotcha!'s I should know about?

    Any input would be appreciated!

    A sign with the "Gun Buster" symbol (Circle and slash w/ gun in the middle) is a legal posting regardless of whether any words are with it or not.

    If a sign with words only is used, is supposed to contain wording substantially similar to

    "AS AUTHORIZED BY T.C.A. § 39-17-1359, POSSESSION OF A WEAPON ON POSTED PROPERTY OR IN A POSTED BUILDING IS PROHIBITED AND IS A CRIMINAL OFFENSE"

    Substantially similar means is must contain: 1) The property is posted per TN law, 2) What is prohibited (firearms all weapons) and where (building, room, property) and 3) That possession is a criminal offense.

    Can't answer about the aquarium and not really any "gothcas" I can think of.

    Hope you have a great trip
