In an article today Governor Haslam tells the People of Tennessee that he doesn't think teachers or college professors should have the right to keep and bear arms, and that Connecticut's gun control laws didn't have anything to do with the recent Connecticut massacre.

In light of the recent school massacre in Connecticut Governor Haslam still maintains that educators in Tennessee, at all levels, should not have the ability to defend themselves against similar attacks.
From the article:
Haslam said he still believes schools and universities should be able to bar their employees from bringing their gun to work, a position that has put him at odds with some Republicans in the state legislature. Haslam said his focus would be on reviewing the state’s mental health services.
“I don’t know a lot of legislation that I’ve seen would have stopped what happened there, [CT school massacre]” Haslam told reporters Monday.
