NASHVILLE — Tennessee state Rep. Debra Maggart wants to set the record straight.
Despite criticism that she worked behind the scenes to kill key gun bills, the Republican from Hendersonville said she has a “100 percent” voting record on Second Amendment rights legislation.
Maggart, a high-ranking Republican leader who is in the middle of a heated election in Sumner County, took her message to the web in a video Monday, saying the gun lobby has been trying to “bully” her and other lawmakers into passing bills that violate the property rights of business owners.
However, Maggart’s opponent in the primary, retired Air Force Lt. Col. Courtney Rogers, as well as the Tennessee Second Amendment organization that’s been critical of Maggart, quickly shot back.
