Explaining later why he signed the law, Lee had brushed aside objections from law enforcement, saying, “It shouldn’t be hard for law-abiding Tennesseans to exercise their Second Amendment rights.” Lee also apparently ignored data that had shown a dramatic uptick throughout 2021 in gun-related homicides in the city of Memphis, with many of those deaths occurring
