Gun control: Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee says it's too 'early' to commit to enacting red flag gun law

Hours after President Donald Trump on Monday called for red flag laws to be enacted around the country in an effort to prevent potential mass shootings, Gov. Bill Lee said he still is not convinced of the correct path forward.

Speaking to reporters on Monday at the National Conference of State Legislatures, Lee would not commit to supporting such a law in Tennessee, where the Republican-controlled legislature this session declined to take up the measure.

"I haven't analyzed that option yet," he said. "It's early for us to talk about which direction we want to go."

Sen. Steve Dickerson, R-Nashville, introduced the legislation, which was not popular among his fellow Republicans.

2. Fuck him.

repugs just love killings, as long as it's not them and they continue to be paid to allow it.

4. Did anyone ask him

If any of the other 255 mass shootings this year happened long enough ago to talk about? I mean, FFS, we can go back to Columbine. Is that too recent to discuss?

5. Who on earth would oppose gun laws ....

to try to prevent what happened in El Paso, Dayton and all the other tragic shootings. We are no longer safe in school, in church, movies, shopping, concerts, night clubs, bars and so on. Why would any decent person oppose trying to prevent those happenings. As hard as I try to understand their opposition I can't figure it out.
