We have heard of this in California having seen images of Governor Newsome attending a dinner while banning such for little people. We have seen New York Governor Cuomo going about unmasked while requiring masking for the little people.
When I got in line in the hallway, everyone in line was masked.
......But, when I got to the door of the office I was to do business with, having maintained 'proper' social distancing along the way, I saw that the employees in that office were unmasked. One lady had her mask on, but it was under her chin.
* EFFECTIVE JULY 7, 2020
A MASK IS REQUIRED INSIDE ALL COUNTY OFFICES

From my friend David Cole:
With the election less than a week away, I think it is time for a final reminder of the importance of this decision regarding gun freedom. No matter how you personally feel about Donald Trump, there is no other choice if preserving the 2nd Amendment is important to you. There is no third way.
If you vote third party, or simply stay home (kind of the same thing), you are saying that there are other things more important to you than the 2nd Amendment.

This race is between incumbent Ryan Williams and political newcomer Dennis Bynum. Today, I voted for Bynum. In a separate post, I will give Bynum's answers to a firearms survey.
Mr. Williams has been unresponsive to the same survey. Draw your own conclusions as to where he stands. My sense is that he is a gun butter.
Below are some email exchanges that went between Mr. Williams and me, going back over a year. Also, when I spoke to him at the Tennessee Firearms Association Constitutional Carry Lobby Day on Tuesday, March 10, 2020, he did not seem to be interested in passing Constitutional Carry.

1. Do you believe that the Constitution is the "supreme law of the land" and that the Bill of Rights acknowledges our birthrights?
We learned the Constitution and the associated Bill of Rights is the supreme law of the land when we were children and I still believe that today. It may be changed – using Article 5 is federal– but it should NOT be interpreted away. A constitutional amendment would be the only way to take it away.
2. If so, should these rights be proactively protected from infringement by all levels of government, including city, county and state?
All levels of governmental servants swear an oath to uphold the US Constitution as well as the constitution of their state (if they are at state level or below). Yes, all levels should guard against infringement on our rights.
3. Please give some examples of gun laws you consider constitutional.
