TN Rejects More Gun Applications
Tennessee rejects more gun applications than most other states according to new information. A look at Department of Justice records indicate that just over four percent of applications submitted to purchase guns were turned down in the state during 2010 based on criminal background checks. The national average for rejection is about one-and-a-half percent. Just about half or more of those people that were turned down in the state of Tennessee ended up able to purchase a gun. The state says this is because arrests are sometimes recorded but the outcome of the cases are not put into the system and that causes a problem obtaining the licenses. (CC)
