In Tennessee, the Republican-dominated Legislature adjourned Thursday after a hectic special session this week on guns and public safety. This comes amid mounting anger in the wake of the Covenant School shooting in Nashville earlier this year, which killed three children and three adults. Hundreds of protesters have rallied on Capitol grounds this week to demand lawmakers take action against gun violence. On Tuesday, a Republican leader ordered state troopers to remove people waiting to testify from a legislative hearing, provoking chaos and intense emotions. On Monday, Republicans imposed new penalties on lawmakers believed to be too disruptive, and banned visitors from carrying signs. Members of the public circumvented the new rule by displaying words on their cellphones instead. A judge on Wednesday paused the ban on signs. Tennessee Democrat Justin Jones, a member of the “Tennessee 3,” was cut off at a House session after accusing the Republican House speaker of racism over the new rules. Justin Jones, alongside Justin Pearson, was expelled earlier this year, then reelected by voters, for protesting gun violence at the Capitol. We’ll be joined by Representative Jones later in the broadcast.
