We interrupt today’s disaster recovery to bring you a hearing on banning abortion and getting rid of gun permits.
The chairman just prayed for God’s help to restore order, and I’m not sure what he thinks Nashville is doing out there.
Our first expert on getting rid of gun permits is married to a gun profiteer. You can’t make this shit up.…
Now the committee is being told by the association of Tennessee police chiefs that getting rid of gun permits will put officers in jeopardy. With that, the vice chair tells him he has one minute left.
Sen. Mike Bell absolutely loves cops, until they say his actions put them in danger. That makes Mike Bell mad.
Beth Roth of @SafeTenn just presented hard data proving that Tennessee’s epidemic levels of gun violence have increased over the last decade and that permitless carry correlates with increased mortality. The committee had no questions.
The committee is hearing from a mother her lost her son in the Waffle House shooting. It was strategic to move forward knowing much of the press is occupied elsewhere today.
Tennessee State Senator @lundbergjon just interrupted a sobbing, grieving mother to let her know she is out of time. I don’t know how you give fewer shits.
They really just silenced a grieving mother so that a paid NRA goon can thank them for their good work. He promises facts!
So far the only people who have testified in favor of permitless carry are paid to do so.
Sen. Bell is now whining that law enforcement opposed his other gun bills. Considering the increasing levels of gun violence, they were right.
Sen. @katrinafortn nailed it. Tennessee rejected 1,001 permits last year. They won’t have to bother with a permit under this legislation.
How are we supposed to debate this when one side has lived experience and CDC data, and the other side keeps saying “good people and evil doers” like a 5-year-old?
They just took the vote, and @SaraforTN yelled NO. That’s why I love her.
Permitless carry passed. If the gun freak legislators were consistent in their dumbass logic, we’d have same-day voter registration and legal weed.
Two Dems listening to the content of the abortion ban. One has a good poker face and one doesn’t.

Both of y’all are 👑
The committee is now considering an abortion ban that wasn’t publicly available prior to today’s meeting. Is Tennessee a democracy?
🔥 testimony by @TNAdvocatesPP CEO Ashley Coffield
Listen to this snake-handler gibberish and tell me what this has to do real life health care decisions pregnant people have to make.
This dude just said Planned Parenthood is planning murder. Wonder why we have people threatening @TNAdvocatesPP volunteers in the Capitol?
An all-out ban on abortion in Tennessee passed the first committee vote. It’s dangerous and unconstitutional.
