Tennessee Red Flag Bill Submitted, How Far Will TN Go To Infringe On Our 2nd Amendment?

A Tennessee bill would allow law enforcement officers and courts to remove firearms or force the sale of firearms from persons deemed an extreme risk.

HB1049/SB0943, also known as the “Families Know First Act,” would allow for an “Extreme Risk Protection Order” to be presented by police then issued by a court for those deemed a risk to themselves or others if in possession of a firearm(s).

Under the bill, a law enforcement officer or agency could seek an extreme risk protection order if based on an investigation police find the individual poses an “immediate and present danger of causing personal injury to the subject or to another by having in the subject’s custody or control, owning, purchasing, possessing, or receiving a firearm.”
