On March 27, 2023, a mass shooting occurred at the Covenant Elementary School in Nashville. The shooter, who was being treated for an emotional disorder, obtained 7 weapons legally from 5 retailers. Although the parents of the shooter were concerned about the weapons, they had no legal way to intervene. Tennessee needs a law that would allow family members to intervene by petitioning for a court order to temporarily remove guns from people who pose a risk to themselves or others.
