NEW: Tennessee’s Constitution & an 1840 TN Supreme Court Decision Show the Legislature Has the Power to Make Gun Laws, 2A Not Unlimited…
Not only does the 1840 TN Supreme Court say the legislature can make laws with regard to weapons, it calls it “absurd” to contend they would not be able to do so. Image
The 1840 Tennessee Supreme Court ruling says to argue the legislature can’t make gun laws would be to “pervert a great political right to the worst of purposes” and make it a “social evil infinitely greater than abandoning the right entirely”… Image
The 1840 Tennessee Supreme Court ruling imagined “ruffians” entering theaters and churches with guns to terrorize “habitually” — saying it was “surely not” beyond the legislature’s power to do something about it.

Prophetic.… Image
1840 TN Supreme Court ruling closed saying “the right to bear arms is not of that unqualified character”

They make it clear the TN constitution, and 🇺🇸 constitution were not about flooding the streets with weapons of war. It was for a “common defense” (military) with regulations Image

WATCH: “Were you threatening him?”

@tamronhall asks Rod Lunn, who threatened the dad in WILCO, a straightforward Q - he answers by bragging about headlines and the Biden mention🧐 (and getting her name wrong)

Tamron points out he won’t answer, and doesn’t even have kids.
Lunn cites a *Stanford study* about masks not working — @tamronhall pointed out the study was debunked by Stanford… Lunn says he wants to talk to Biden — Tamron wonders why Biden would talk to him when he won’t even answer her questions. 🎯🧐😕
Lunn burps out “my body my choice”, eliciting groans from the audience.

@tamronhall points out putting kids in car seats is a “mandate” — appeals to his “common sense”

Unsurprisingly, Lunn is fresh out of that. 🤷🏻 😷

Let’s be clear about what this @BrandonLRichard article says: @GovBillLee & @SchwinnTeach knowingly used old PREDICTIONS of *learning loss* and presenting it as data to force kids back to school.

ACTUAL DATA now shows they were WAY off. THREAD.…
Here’s @GovBillLee & @SchwinnTeach putting out their press release about *learning loss* that has no actual data from Tennessee schools. Image
.@GovBillLee’s explanation of the numbers is an old generalized study from the NWEA, which has since been replaced by newer data.

@TNRepParkinson rightly calls it what it is: A justification to push kids back to school. Image

Damnnn. A lot to chew on about @DaveRamseyLIVE’s Franklin operation here:

“Ramsey’s intolerance for dissent has created what former employees call a cultlike environment, where leaders proclaim love for staff and then fire people at a moment’s notice.”…
.@DaveRamseyLIVE on COVID: “The virus only affects the weak and infirm... I am keeping your money. You are a wuss.”
In which @DaveRamseyLIVE fires a guy because his wife posts on Facebook her concern about him going back to work in-person... 😷

BREAKING: "The flag is a symbol of oppression because it has been used by groups like the Ku Klux is not a welcoming symbol to all community members."

A Williamson County task force recommends the removal of the Confederate flag from their county seal.

She cites concerns about the cost of the changes.

Meanwhile, the beginning of their meeting was spent discussing the largest project WilCo has ever taken on, a new sheriff's office and courts complex.
COMMISSIONER BARBARA STURGEON says she doesn't believe most WilCo constituents feel the Confederate flag should be removed from the seal.

She says that if it is removed, it must be replaced by something that honors Confederate soldiers.

LIVE NOW: @GovBillLee touting his call for a special session next week to take up legislation that would extend liability protections to businesses for "frivolous lawsuits associated with #COVID19." 1/
And legislation that would potentially add more ways to criminalize the folks who have been holding down @plaza_tn.

THIS is what @GovBillLee is choosing to focus on during a crisis that is killing Tennesseans.

Still no statewide mask mandate. 2/
He just bragged about his "fiscally responsible" response to this crisis. 3/
