Opposition to Tennessee red flag law, special session grows

Jun 19, 2023 | Political News

 Opposition to a Tennessee special session where red flag gun legislation is set to be considered has continued.

The Tennessee Faith and Freedom Coalition and country music artist John Rich both objected to the legislation and Aug. 21 special session.

“The Governor of TN is trying to strong arm Representatives to vote for a “rebranded” Red Flag Law in our state,” Rich wrote. “Can you believe that? Just another RINO in sheep’s clothing. This attempt at disarming Tennesseans will fail, I promise you. Share your thoughts and tag: #RedFlagDown”

The Faith and Freedom Coalition wrote to Lee, asking for him to cancel the special session and wait until January’s regular session to consider new legislation.
