Some Republican leaders say Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee’s 11th-hour proposal to keep firearms out of the hands of people who are a threat to themselves or others likely does not have support to pass before the end of the legislative session — or, some say, ever.

Lee proposed legislation on Wednesday to create a temporary mental health risk protection order, an expansion of existing state code that would allow law enforcement to block certain individuals from legally possessing firearms for a temporary period, if they’re found to have threatened substantial harm to themselves or others.

GOP says support is lacking to pass Lee’s gun bill before session end

Governor Lee is termed, so I figure he is trying to remain in Nashville politics after he is out of office and that means kissing some Democrat Party’s ass.  I do admit I am still a total newbie when it comes to TN politics, but I suspect I may not be too wrong.

Now I wonder how petty the Gov is when a bill protecting Firearm manufacturers has been approved and sent to him for signature. Will he sign or veto as a “fuck you” to the Legislature that ignored his Red Flag proposal?

One thought on “Tennessee’s Red Flag Bill more than likely dead and buried.”
  1. I think your assessment is probably pretty accurate. He’s pulling the Adam Kinzinger playbook and trying to appear like he’s a “reasonable” republican who couldn’t get anything done because of all those “Ultra MAGA”/hardline NRA/whatever slur is currently used on people who just want to be left alone types.
    Swamp creatures will continue to want to swamp creature because it’s way more lucrative than being a working stiff. Plus, us normal earth people don’t like dealing with narcicistic sociopaths (but I repeat myself) at the workplace, so him going back to dealing with the proles is straight out. So my money is he’s angling for some sort of local “consulting” gig or angling to get on the payroll at CNN/NBC/etc.

Only one rule: Don't be a dick.
