Lee’s special session on public safety scheduled for August
Governor Bill Lee has ordered Tennessee legislators back to Nashville for a called special session to discuss his red-flag legislation that was discarded due to time restraints this spring.
The GOP super-majority also wants provisions in Lee’s proposal that protect the rights of gun owners. His plan would give judges the authority to remove weapons from people who are a threat to themselves or others.
Lee called for lawmakers to compromise on the bill after the Covenant shooting where six people including three children were shot dead on March 27.
