NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Mike Osborne)  --  Tennessee lawmakers will debate two gun related bills this week.

Committees in the House and Senate will on Tuesday debate a bill that would allow state residents to carry a gun, openly or concealed, without a license and without any required training.

The bill was first introduced last year, but the pandemic ended the legislative session early. The measure is a priority for Republican Gov. Bill Lee.

A second bill up for consideration in the HouseTuesday would require every Tennessee school system to put students through firearms safety training.
