Tennessee House leader Maggert loses to pro-gun challenger

Thursday, in a hotly contested Republican primary race, Debra Maggert lost to challenger Courtney Rogers. The back story is that the current Republican leadership made big promises to gun advocates, but after taking the majority of seats in the House, forgot who brung them to the dance.

The NRA and Tennessee Firearms Association (TFA) both jumped into this race, and aided Rogers. Here is  TFA's Executive Director, John Harris, in a post-election interview(a little over three minutes):

Here's the deal, gun rights advocates will continue to replace politicians who make big promises, then turn their backs on us when they get into office.

The Speaker and her cronies should take a lesson from this.


A prudent person foresees danger and takes precautions.
The simpleton goes blindly on and suffers the consequences. Proverbs 22:3 (NLT)
