TN: Stop Lousy Lee’s Special Red Flag Session
Recently, turncoat Governor Bill “Lousy Lee” issued an eighteen-point proclamation calling for a special session.
Arguably, any of the eighteen points could perhaps be used to advance gun control but point twelve is the most concerning.
It calls for so-called “temporary mental health orders of protection,” which is just political speech for red flag gun confiscation.
Further, any so-called “due process protections” added do not relieve the concerns of gun owners. In other words, this “Constructive Republican Alternative Proposal” (CRAP) cannot be polished.
Gun owners have further reason to believe that Gov. Lousy Lee is serious about passing red flag gun confiscation. Tennessee has received over $6 million to fund red flag gun confiscation from the misnamed “Bipartisan Safer Communities Act” that was passed in Congress last year.
Instead of using that money to take firearms away from honest gun owners, perhaps it could go towards refunding the hunting and archery school programs (which, ironically, Biden used the misnamed Bipartisan Safer Communities Act to remove funding for these programs.)
Simply put, there’s a lot of pressure on the legislature to cave. And while many state legislators have rejected the concept of red flags outright, many weak-kneed politicians may be willing to pass something they believe is a compromise.
However, it is Gun Owners of America’s strong position that no red flag gun confiscation order (no matter what it may be called) or any other gun control measure should be passed. The session must end as quickly as it begins.
And GOA has already been in the battle. GOA has targeted key legislators and generated hundreds of calls from constituents.
However, now is not the time to backdown. Gun owners must snuff out the session before it starts. Please contact both your state representative and senator immediately.
We’re counting on your action!
