Double Down: No Red Flag Laws in Tennessee
Act to Oppose “Mental Health Orders of Protection”
Gun owners remember the pro-gun platform Bill “Lousy Lee” campaigned on in 2018.
He teased gun owners with promises of Constitutional Carry, campus carry, and other pro-gun reforms.
Interestingly, one of his promises was to sign legislation to allow “educators to be a part of the school security solution and exercise their right to carry lawfully possessed firearms in the workplace.”
Gov. Lee’s lousy response to the Nashville tragedy has shown that at best he has a bad memory, or worse, he was not serious about his campaign promises.
His reaction to the Nashville shooting was not to stand by the Constitution, his campaign promises, or the people who elected him. Instead, he signed an executive gun control order and called for red flag gun confiscation.
While gun owners will not forget about Lousy Lee’s sellout, our focus must turn to the General Assembly.
The legislature could be considering red flag gun confiscation very soon, under the guise of a “mental health order of protection.”
Please take action and urge your legislators to oppose red flag gun confiscation, no matter what form it takes.
