Justin Jones and Justin Pearson follow their ouster by the Republican-led Legislature for a protest on the House floor urging passage of gun-control measures in the wake of a deadly school shooting in Nashville.

The Nashville metro council is likely to reappoint Jones during a specially called meeting Monday. The Shelby County Commission plans to announce soon when it will meet to fill the vacancy left by Pearson’s expulsion. Likewise, commissioners can reinstall Pearson.
