Williamson Co. State’s Attorney Will Not Prosecute Under Proposed Assault Weapon Ban

Marion – Williamson Co. state’s attorney Brandon Zanotti says he wouldn’t put otherwise law-abiding gun owners behind bars if lawmakers ban many types of common firearms. Zanotti read the language of Senate Bill 107, a proposed state law that would ban many pistols, shotguns and rifles and charge those who violate the law with a felony. He predicted that the bill could potentially put many people he knows in his county on the wrong side of the law. Because of this, he announced that he wouldn’t prosecute first-time offenders under the proposed gun ban. Zanotti intends to speak to other state’s attorneys about the enforceability of the law.
