Nearly 10,000 people submitted feedback on potential gun and public safety legislation in the first two weeks after Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee solicited public feedback in May when announcing his plans to call a special legislative session on Aug. 21.

A majority of the input called for changes to Tennessee gun laws, mirroring state and national polling trends indicating a bipartisan majority of Tennesseans and Americans support increased gun restrictions. In the feedback to the governor’s office, many supported safe storage laws, expanded background checks and banning assaultstyle weapons, while those opposed to new laws expressed concern about opening the door for increased regulations down the road.

Public feedback backs new gun laws

Wait, there is a portal for commenting? WTF?

I had to look it up and it was not easy to find it. just a small four letter link in the Governor website’s Newsroom. Nothing in the main page of the official page, no link easily available. It was not till today I found out it even existed, and I don’t recall having been mentioned in the news or even my local rag (Daily News Journal AKA Section F of the Tennessean”)

However, by the “results”, it seems that Opposition had no problem finding it or, more than likely, had internal help sharing the link quietly and being the “majority” in the comments.

Fellow Tennesseans (and other Gun Rights Defenders) click on this link and let the governor know how you feel about more useless gun control.

  1. They have a similar feature in IL. Not that it matters. Most comments are 100:1 against gun control but the legislature then changes the time/location of a hearing, nullifying all the comments, and/or just ignores them, passing whatever they want.

  2. yup. common tactic amongst the gun grabbers here in Oregon. The legislature, hand in hand with Moms Demand &$#king will ‘schedule’ a public hearing, then at the last minute change the date and / or severely restrict *who* is allowed to provide comment. Wake up, your government is against you…

    1. In a Maryland legislature hearing, the chairman told us that because so many people had signed up to testify that for time limit purposes they were going to limit speakers to just groups.

      Of course there were all the regular infringing groups there, all of them got to speak. And the only 2A group was also represented. The NRA got to put one witness on the stand.

      20ish anti-gun rights and one 2A group.

      Mind you that there were about 30 anti-gun rights people there total and about 5000 2A advocates. (The count of anti-gun people does not include the elected officials and their lapdogs and armed protection)

  3. The useful idiots never foresee a time in which they are queued up along the edge of an excavation.
