Tennessee Highway Patrol announces Traffic Enforcement Plan, Safety Message for Christmas Holiday
Nashville, TN – The Tennessee Highway Patrol (THP) will conduct an aggressive traffic safety enforcement campaign during the Christmas holiday. Some plan to travel, while others will experience the holidays virtually. THP’s mission is to keep drivers safe when traveling.
This campaign is aimed at deterring impaired driving and reducing fatal crashes on Tennessee roadways. THP will focus our attention on distracted, reckless, speeding and unrestrained motorists. State troopers will perform saturation patrols, as well as seat belt, sobriety and driver license checkpoints. All of Tennessee’s 95 counties will have troopers working to ensure a safe holiday. Please help us make this a joyful Christmas.

Washington, D.C. – On Tuesday, December 21st, 2020, U.S. Representative Mark Green sent a letter to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) expressing grave concerns over a new notice in the Federal Register declaring the Bureau’s intention to impose regulations on stabilizing braces for firearms:
Representative Green said: “ATF’s guidance on this action infringes on the 2nd Amendment rights of all Americans. This notice is a reckless example of bureaucratic overreach at the expense of law-abiding American gun owners, and could be the first step in a significant assault on our freedoms. I am demanding answers, and I urge ATF to rescind this notice immediately.”
