Tennessee State Rep. Justin Jones to be Reinstated to Legislature After Protest Against Gun Violence

Tennessee state Rep. Justin Jones (D) and his colleague, Rep. Justin Pearson (D), were expelled from the House of Representatives on Thursday after protesting gun violence in response to a mass shooting. The Nashville Metropolitan Council will hold a special meeting Monday to discuss an interim replacement for Jones' seat and is expected to vote to reinstate him, showing support for his stance on gun control. This decision is a victory for gun control advocates in the state, demonstrating the council's commitment to standing up for its constituents.
