Governor Bill Lee has signed legislation preempting local municipalities from enforcing extreme risk protection orders (ERPOs), commonly known as red flag laws, which allow judges and police to temporarily take away someone’s guns if they’re at risk of harming themselves or others, despite his push for extreme risk protection orders before the Special Session in 2023.

“We need to have solutions

“We need to have solutions that are unified across the state,” Gov. Lee said. “When we have a patchwork of those type bills, whether they’re criminal bills or public safety bills, and we don’t have unity there, it’s not nearly as effective or valuable as a unified bill.”

There can be no unity across this state. The TN legislature will not protect the citizens from crazed gun owners.
