As the old saying goes, laughter is the best medicine, and it seems that Republicans are getting their dose of it after a Nashville florist denied them service and called for strict gun control measures. While the florist may have been trying to make a political statement, its decision was laughed at by Republicans, who support a free market economy where businesses can deny services to anyone.

Following the Republican National Committee’s request for floral arrangements for an upcoming event, a Nashville flower shop publicly blasted the RNC.

An Instagram post by FLWR Shop in Nashville stated that it wouldn’t do business with the RNC due to its pro-Second Amendment stance.

The post read: “Last week, we received a request to provide floral design services for an RNC fundraising event planned to take place in our city in mid-April, featuring Donald Trump and other members of the Republican Party. We immediately declined this ‘opportunity.’”

The post continued: “We would like to challenge others in the Nashville event industry to say no to taking money or jobs from the Republican party until they begin to make changes to gun laws that most Americans are calling for.”

In response, Tennessee House Republican Caucus Chairman Jeremy Faison fired back at the florist on Twitter, writing, “Then [the RNC] will find another florist, easily. Who cares? That’s the beauty of the free market. Only the Left would punish someone for not agreeing with their moral positions. Conservatives shrug, find an alternative, & move on. Let them lose their money.”

This news as the National Rifle Association (NRA) just wrapped up their annual meeting in Indianapolis, where a number of announced and expected 2024 GOP presidential candidates — including Trump, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, and former U.S. ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley — spoke in support of gun rights.

Since last month’s Nashville school shooting, the conversation about gun reform has intensified in Tennessee, with two state lawmakers expelled for participating in demonstrations on the state House floor in support of gun control. In the wake of their expulsions, both Justin Pearson (D-Memphis) and Justin Jones (D-Nashville) were reinstated to the state House. Additionally, Tennessee Governor Bill Lee also announced this week that he will strengthen background checks for buying firearms in the state.

At the end of the day, the Republican Party will continue to stand up for free speech, individual rights, and traditional values, and we will not be silenced or bullied by those on the other side of the aisle. Our commitment to freedom and liberty will always prevail, and we will continue to fight for what we believe in, regardless of the obstacles placed in our path.
