Update: City of Austin goes off the deep endSubmitted by yankee on Wed, 02/27/2013 - 23:50
35 Approve a resolution signifying the City Council's intent to endorse efforts to develop a comprehensive approach to reducing gun crime.
Now the City of Austin can go on the boycott list!
At tomorrow's meeting of Austin's "non-partisan" City Council, members will vote on an assault to our second amendment protected right to self-defense!!
The proposed Resolution calls on "leaders at the state and federal level to enact legislation that limits the size of ammunition magazines, [and] puts reasonable restrictions on public ownership of military-style guns."
Additionally language includes:
"That the City Council strongly supports Mayor Lee Leffingwell's membership in Mayors Against Illegal Guns, endorses the statement and efforts of the organization, and supports President Obama's effort to develop a comprehensive approach to reducing gun crime."
The resolution also entertains a "suggestion that a gun show organizer could provide a central area for attendees to undergo one background check before making any firearm purchase at the show."
What part of
"...the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed" do they not understand?!
