Tennessee State Rep. Justin Jones (D-Nashville) is in the headlines again after another stunt at the Tennessee House where he attempted to walk in with a child size casket Monday.
He was confronted by the Sergeant of Arms and was told he could not enter with the casket.
The rally made it inside the Capitol going through security. Rep. Justin Jones and Bishop Barber are trying to enter the chamber with a casket. The sergeant of arms went to check and tells them they can’t bring the casket inside the House chamber. @NC5 pic.twitter.com/SCa7XRGpRj— Kelsey Gibbs (@kelseymgibbs) April 17, 2023
This all occurred as hundreds of stricter gun legislation protestors gathered outside the Capitol’s steps.
Local ministers also gathered with their own coffins to place on the steps.
Jones was recently reinstated back to the House after being expelled in early April for breaking House decorum rules after the tragic Covenant school shooting.
