Rep. Karen Camper (D-Memphis) is the newest member of the Tennessee House, replacing the late Rep. Gary Rowe. Not long after being sworn in, she was appointed to the House Judiciary committee and the Criminal Practice subcommittee which heard a bill closing the records of those with gun permit. The Speaker and Rep. Camper gave the subcommittee enough votes to kill the bill.
