NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WJHL) – A local lawmaker spoke out about a pair of “red flag” bills Monday that were proposed in the state General Assembly.
Tennessee Sen. Sara Kyle and Rep. Gloria Johnson proposed legislation last week that would issue an emergency order of protection, keeping a person from either owning or buying a firearm if they’re deemed a threat by either law enforcement or a family member.
