Ramsey: ‘Nomadic Bands’ of Protestors Don’t Scare Us

Statement from Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey, R-Blountville, March 15, 2011:

The right of all citizens to protest and assemble peacefully is sacred in the State of Tennessee. However, this General Assembly will not be intimidated by nomadic bands of professional agitators on spring break bent on disruption. We talk through our differences here. Tennessee is not Wisconsin.
