Denver, CO. – Over the weekend, the National Association for Gun Rights announced the winner of their first annual Traitor of the Year award at the Western Conservative Summit in Denver. Tennessee Governor Bill Lee was named the winner, earning the award following his calling of a special legislative session to try and pass “Red Flag” Gun Confiscation laws.
Governor Bill Lee has been a vocal supporter of “Red Flag” Gun Confiscation in 2023. “Red Flag” bills call for legally owned firearms to be forcibly confiscated from law-abiding Americans without due process, based on unsubstantiated accusations from disgruntled family members, neighbors, co-workers, and/or current or ex-romantic partners, or roommates.
“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,” said 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.”
The National Association for Gun Rights is mobilizing to be ready to fight any and all gun control attempts filed in Tennessee during the Special Legislative Session, called to start August 21st.
The National Association for Gun Rights expects all pro-gun members of the Tennessee House and Senate to join us in opposing this type of gun confiscation.
The National Association for Gun Rights is the nation’s largest “no compromise” pro-gun organization.
