As of November 1st, there is no longer a sales tax on gun safes or lockbox purchases in Tennessee.

There has been an increase in the number of people looking to buy gun safes since the tax exemption went into effect, and some of those buyers mentioned the new law.

Consumers are looking to keep their guns away from a loved one or underage child, from someone breaking in their house, or they just want to protect their valuables.

According to a Vanderbilt Health Poll, 87.3% of Tennessee parents say a gun should be stored in a lockbox or safe.
