Comment: The Austin gun control resolution WAS passed

(See in situ)

The Austin gun control resolution WAS passed

at City Council last week, February 28. This was the day before this man's death.
Entire draft of resolution.

Language from this resolution includes this statement below, along with specific measures aimed at limiting types of guns and ammo, crackdowns on gun shows, background checks and databases even on private sales; basically, the whole nine yards.

"..on December 19, 2012, Austin Mayor Lee Leffingwell, as a member of the Mayors Against Illegal Guns, joined this bipartisan coalition of more than 850 mayors in urging President Obama to take immediate and near- term actions to make it harder for dangerous people to illegally possess guns, and easier for police and prosecutors to crack down on them;"
