- The “Tennessee Three” lawmakers are heading to the White House to meet with President Joe Biden and discuss gun control reform on Monday following their historic expulsions and reinstatements to the Tennessee legislature.
- Biden extended invitations to state Reps. Justin Jones, Gloria Johnson, and Justin Pearson, commending the Democrats for drawing attention to the rise in gun violence in the United States following several mass shootings.
- Jones and Pearson, who are black, were ousted from the legislature in a Republican-spurred vote and immediately reinstated in the following days. Johnson, who is white, was not expelled after being saved by just one vote.
