The bill sponsored by House Democratic Caucus Chairman Mike Turner of Nashville passed 85-3 on Monday. The companion bill is waiting to be scheduled for a vote on the Senate floor. The measure would let a person carry the weapon "during the archery-only deer season."
Turner said he proposed the legislation after a constituent was robbed in a parking lot after deer hunting.
