Justin Jones from the Legislature for his role in a protest calling for gun control following last week’s shooting at a private Christian school in Nashville that killed six people, including three children. Fox 17 Nashville reports that Jones was sanctioned for using a bullhorn when he joined with protesters, which state House leaders called “disorderly behavior.” NASHVILLE KILLER AUDREY HALE SLEPT WITH JOURNALS ON SCHOOL SHOOTINGS UNDER BED, COURT DOCS REVEAL Thursday’s vote marked an extraordinary move from lawmakers that has been executed only a handful of times since the Civil War.  House lawmakers are also considering ousting Democratic Reps.
