- John Harris, executive director of the Tennessee Firearms Association said Friday that Republican Gov. Bill Lee, who has asked the legislature to deliver him a proposed”Red Flag Law,” which he calls an “Order of Protection” law, is treading on dangerous constitutional grounds.
- “It is not clear why Governor Bill Lee, who claims to support the Second Amendment, would propose a Red Flag law at this time. The circumstances indicate potentially two reasons,” Harris said. “First, the Covenant School shooting fatalities have generated a public emotional response – something that he referenced in his April 11 statement. Second, activist Democrat state legislators are making a demand that more gun control be enacted now.”
- Harris says the “Red Flag Law” would likely be unconstitutional.
