MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - Tennessee Governor Bill Lee is speaking out about the upcoming special session to begin in just a few weeks.

The session will focus on school safety and the state’s gun laws.

Governor Lee wants lawmakers to take up an “order of protection” law that would allow courts to take guns away from people who are deemed a threat to themselves or others.

Gov. Lee says he’s confident lawmakers will get something passed, and so is Memphis State Rep. and mayoral candidate Karen Camper.

The special session is scheduled to start on Aug. 21.
