Beavers' Nullification Bill fails - sanity prevails

A bill seeking to make it a crime to enforce federal firearms laws in Tennessee has failed in the Senate Judiciary Committee. The measure sponsored by Republican Sen. Mae Beavers of Mt. Juliet received a 4-4 vote in the judiciary committee today. Bills must earn a majority to advance.

Here is how they voted:   
               Senators voting aye were: Campfield, Bell, Gardenhire, Green -- 4.
               Senators voting no were: Kelsey, Overbey, Finney L, Stevens -- 4.
