Tennessee House District 42, Ryan Williams, NO



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.

Dear Representative Williams:

The Cookeville - Upper Cumberland chapter of the TFA meets the second Monday evening of each month at the Golden Corral in Cookeville. Our next meeting will be June 10. We meet for a meal/social hour at 6:00 pm, and the formal meeting begins at 7:00 pm.

Would you be available to be our guest speaker for the next meeting on June 10?

Respectfully,

Will you be able to make this meeting, or should I make other plans; and perhaps schedule you at a future date?

Dear Ryan,

I sent you a survey through FB Messenger. I would appreciate your taking the time to complete it.
