RINO TN Gov. Bill Lee Breaks – Calls for Legislature to Pass Red Flag Law

Tennessee Governor Bill Lee was holding firm to his opposition to gun control measures, even after the Nashville Christian school shooting, as he should. However, he broke with that opposition and is now calling for state legislatures to pass a red flag law.

Tell me you’re not representing your constituents and hold up the Constitution without telling me you’re not representing your constituents and holding up the Constitution…..

Red flag laws do not protect from school shootings, or any shootings in that matter. Take Connecticut for example. They became the first state in the Union to adopt a red flag law in 1999. However, it did not stop the attack on Sandy Hook Elementary School in December 2012.

All the red flag laws do is allow people to falsely accuse their neighbors (or enemies) of presenting the “red flags” of being a danger to themselves or others and state court can then order the removal of firearms from them.

Despite all of that, Governor Lee is now gunning for a red flag law in the great state of Tennessee.

Nevertheless Gov. Lee is now pushing a red flag law for Tennessee.

According to The Tennessean, Lee said, “I’m asking the General Assembly to bring forward an order of protection law. A new, strong order of protection law will provide the broader population cover, safety, from those who are a danger to themselves or the population.”

Breitbart reports:

Politico observed Lee plans to meet with leaders of the state legislature in hopes of persuading them to support the gun control measure.

On April 2, 2023, this author pointed out a red flag law would not have stopped the Nashville shooting from taking place because neither police nor the family of the 28-year-old transgender shooter were aware of the planned violence against the Christian school.

Moreover, Breitbart News reported her parents knew she had one gun, once upon a time, but they urged her to sell it and believed she did. The parents were unaware she had actually bought more guns, which she kept hidden from them.

Additionally, the transgender killer had no criminal record–she bought her guns legally–and was not on police radar.

Metropolitan Nashville Police Department (MNPD) chief John Drake said that the MNPD would have taken her guns prior to the attack, but “as it stands, [they] had absolutely no idea who…[she] was.”

Red flag laws may sound good on paper to some, but they are not helping anyone.
