More Tennessee County GOP’s, County Commissions Issue Resolutions Against Red Flag Laws

May 22, 2023 | Political News

With Governor Lee having announced his special session for late August to address the public safety issue after the shooting at Covenant School, additional county GOP’s and County Commissions have issued resolutions against the Governor’s proposal for Red Flag or ERPO legislation. 

Wilson County GOP and Loudon County Commission have added their resolutions to the growing number of county and state level organizations that oppose anything that even remotely resembles Red Flag/ERPO laws being proposed for the state of Tennessee. 

As reported previously, resolutions from at least 8 counties (Lewis, Jefferson, Claiborne, Williamson, Carter, Grainger, Benton, and Sullivan) expressing their opposition to any laws that would infringe on Tennesseans 2nd Amendment rights have been issued. Stewart County GOP is reported to be working on a resolution as well. They all generally contain the same verbiage, and reference the most recent holdings from the Supreme Court on the issue of 2nd Amendment rights, which is the New York State Rifle & Pistol Association, Inc. V Bruen.
