Tennessee Governor Bill Lee Receives the Dishonor of Being Labeled the Second Amendment Traitor of the Year by the National Association for Gun Rights
In the middle of June, the National Association for Gun Rights (NAGR) announced the winner of its first ever Traitor of the Year award at the Western Conservative Summit that took place in Denver. Tennessee Governor Bill Lee received this dishonorable title. He received the award after he called a special legislative session to attempt and pass “Red Flag” Gun Confiscation laws.
Governor Bill Lee has been a staunch backer of “red flag” gun confiscation orders in 2023. “Red Flag” bills enable law enforcement to seize lawfully owned firearms from law-abiding Americans without due process, simply based on flimsy accusations from family members, neighbors, co-workers, and/or current or ex-romantic partners, or roommates with an ax to grind.
“There is nothing more traitorous you can do than bend the knee to the gun grabbers by pushing bills to confiscate firearms without due process,” remarked Dudley Brown, President of the National Association for Gun Rights. “I cannot think of anyone more deserving to be named Traitor of the Year than Governor Bill Lee after he sold out pro-gun Tennesseans.”
NAGR is already mobilizing its resources to be prepared to fight all gun control schemes being put forward in the Tennessee General Assembly during the Special Legislative Session, which is slated to commence on August 21, 2023.
NAGR is expecting all of the pro-gun members of the Tennessee State House and State Senate to join it to mount fierce opposition against any gun control measures put forward by lawmakers.
Tennessee is currently ranked in 12th place according to Guns & Ammo’s best, a ranking that could take a beating if the state ends up passing gun control measures during this special session of the state legislature.
