    TN: No Red Flag law this year

    But watch for it again next year.

    https://www.tennessean.com/story/new...rm/1927662001/

    Hours after President Donald Trump on Monday called for red flag laws to be enacted around the country in an effort to prevent potential mass shootings, Gov. Bill Lee said he still is not convinced of the correct path forward.

    Speaking to reporters on Monday at the National Conference of State Legislatures, Lee would not commit to supporting such a law in Tennessee, where the Republican-controlled legislature this session declined to take up the measure.

    ...

    Sen. Steve Dickerson, R-Nashville, introduced the legislation, which was not popular among his fellow Republicans.

    ...

    He pointed to a bill this session that increases funding for school safety across the state, including ensuring that a resource officer is placed in each school.

    So far Bill Lee has lived up to the platform upon which he ran. I hope he continues to be staunch in his stance.
