Court rules against man who lost handgun permit
May 24, 2013 16:15 GMT
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- The Tennessee Appeals Court has ruled against a man who claimed state law regulating the carrying of firearms was unconstitutional.
Leonard Embody filed suit in 2010 after state officials took away his carry permit, finding a "material likelihood of risk of harm to the public."
The revocation came after Embody was detained by Belle Meade police in 2010 while walking with a .44 caliber black powder revolver in his hand. He was detained in 2009 while walking in Radnor Lake State Park with an AK-47-style pistol. There have been at least three similar incidents, although Embody was never charged with a crime.
Embody claimed in court the Second Amendment gave him a right to carry firearms.
The Appeals Court disagreed, ruling that the right to bear arms is not unrestricted.
