New Poll Finds That To Keep Communities Safe, Tennessee Voters Want To Remove Dangerous People, Not Guns

Jun 9, 2023 | Political News

According to data from a statewide survey conducted by co/efficient, a  national public opinion research firm, Tennessee voters want threatening individuals removed  from the community rather than just taking their guns with Red Flag Laws. 

“Co/efficient’s statewide survey affirms an overwhelming majority of Tennessee voters want  threatening individuals removed from the home rather than enact proposed Red Flag Laws that  allow for the confiscation of firearms but leave dangerous people in the community,” said Ryan Munce, co/efficient President. “According to the poll, most Tennessee voters attribute the  increase in school shootings over the last three decades to moral decline, family instability, and  risky behavior – not gun ownership, which is a clear indication that Tennessee voters believe an  individual is responsible for their own actions.” 

To keep their community safe, 84% of voters say a dangerous individual should be removed  from the community rather than taking their guns.
