Tennessee 2A Group Says Gov. Lee’s ‘Red Flag’ Proposal Likely Unconstitutional

John Harris, executive director of the Tennessee Firearms Association said Friday that Republican Gov. Bill Lee, who has asked the legislature to deliver him a proposed”Red Flag Law,” which he calls an “Order of Protection” law, is treading on dangerous constitutional grounds.
“It is not clear why Governor Bill Lee, who claims to support the Second Amendment, would propose a Red Flag law at this time. The circumstances indicate potentially two reasons,” Harris said. “First, the Covenant School shooting fatalities have generated a public emotional response – something that he referenced in his April 11 statement. Second, activist Democrat state legislators are making a demand that more gun control be enacted now.”
Harris says the “Red Flag Law” would likely be unconstitutional.
