AG won't issue opinion on gun ban

State Attorney General Herbert Slatery declined to issue an opinion about the gun ban at Chilhowee park during September's annual Tennessee Valley Fair.

"Our office has a longstanding policy of not opining on questions concerning matters pending before the court," he told us today. "This question will ultimately be decided by a Judge, so it would be inappropriate for our office to intrude on that process."

Earlier this month, a Loudon County woman sued the city over the matter.

A number of local leaders had requested an opinion from Slatery.
