Rep. Stacey Campfield, R Knoxville, is questioning if the university is infringing on other athletes' Second Amendment gun rights and has a bill he said will remedy the problem although UT officials say there is not one. "The University of Tennessee athletic director said they were going to suspend any athlete with a gun, legal or illegal," Rep. Campfield said Thursday. "I think they (UT officials) are trying to back away a little bit, but they still have that right. My bill hopefully would stop them from going down the road when they start doing that."
