Tennessee House expels two Democrats amid gun reform protests | USA TODAY

House Republicans in Tennessee voted to expel two of three Democratic members of the House for "disorderly behavior" over anti-gun protests.

Ten days after a shooter unloaded 152 rounds at a Nashville school and killed six people, Tennessee House Republicans on Thursday expelled from the General Assembly two Democratic lawmakers for breaking House rules and mounting a gun-reform protest on the chamber's floor.

After hours of fiery debate, the House expelled Reps. Justin Jones, D-Nashville, on a 72-25 vote, and Rep. Justin Pearson, D-Memphis, 69-26, in a move that put the nation's eyes on Tennessee and its politics.
