Senate candidate Marsha Blackburn talks guns in Harrison event

HARRISON, Tennessee (WDEF) – U.S. Senate candidate Marsha Blackburn makes a campaign stop in Harrison.

Blackburn teamed up with the NRA for an event at Carter’s Shooting Supplies.

Representative Chuck Fleischman also attended.

Blackburn says she supports seating Supreme Court Justices who will protect the second amendment..

The event drew folks from both sides of the political spectrum.

Jim explained why he was waiving a sign supporting Blackburn.

“Marsha is pro second amendment shes a good conservative candidate and we need her in the senate. We need strong representation in the senate we need to get some more good conservative supreme court justices.”

But counter-demonstrator Hayden told us “I’m curious about the congresswoman taking money from the opioid industry and how she de-fanged the FDA and who that was supposed to benefit.”

Blackburn’s opponent Phil Bredesen responded to the event in a statement.

He says he was given an “A” rating and endorsement from the NRA during his run for governor in 2002.
