On Monday night at 7, the Tennessee Democratic Party sent media outlets a press release that focused on gun laws in the Volunteer State. The release stated, “Today has been horrific for the Nashville community and for the people of Tennessee. We’ve been thrust into the national spotlight as the crime scene of the latest mass shooting in our nation. Our prayers and well wishes will never be able to heal the void that the families of those killed at The Covenant School will carry with them forever.”


The release went on to state that Democrats are calling on Governor Bill Lee and Republican Legislators to, “...halt the passage of dangerous new gun laws during the remainder of the current legislative session.”

Tennessee Democratic Party Chair Hendrell Remus said, “Our hearts mourn for the loss of life, especially those young children whose lives have ended as a result of a mass shooting at the Covenant School in Nashville — I’m infuriated at the amount of pain and anguish that reckless gun violence is continuously causing in our communities. It’s time for Republicans in our state to protect every Tennessean and they can begin by pulling their dangerous new gun legislation. ” Hendrell Remus, TNDP Chair
