Hey everyone, I am going to sardis lake next weekend and have a handgun permit from Tennessee. I was wondering if it is legal to carry at the lake or not? thanks

327.13 Explosives, Firearms, Other Weapons and Fireworks.

The possession of loaded firearms, ammunition, loaded projectile firing devices, bows and arrows, crossbows, explosives or explosive devices of any kind, including fireworks, is prohibited unless: (1) in the possession of a Federal, state or local law enforcement officer; (2) being used for hunting or fishing as permitted under Section 327.8, with devices being unloaded when transported to, from or between hunting and fishing sites; (3) being used at authorized shooting ranges; or (4) written permission has been received from the District Engineer.

The way I am reading this, it can't be loaded unless you are actually fishing.
