Your Attendance Is Needed!
In 2006, then-Mayor Rafi Manoukian unsuccessfully tried to ban gun shows in Glendale. Now Councilman Rafi Manoukian is trying to exploit the Connecticut shooting and is once again trying to ban gun shows in Glendale. Your help is needed to help stop this proposed anti-gun ordinance which will do nothing to stop criminals or lunatics from committing acts of violence. Gun shows in California are already heavily regulated. All firearms sales, including private and gun show sales, transfers or loans, must go through a California licensed firearms dealer with a ten-day waiting period before delivery of any firearm. This proposed ordinance will only prevent law-abiding gun owners from exercising their Second Amendment rights.On Tuesday, January 15, the Glendale City Council will be meeting to hear and possibly vote on this egregious proposal that would result in banning gun shows in Glendale, which have been taking place for over two decades. Please plan to attend and respectfully urge the Council Members to OPPOSE any ordinance that would result in the closure of gun shows in Glendale.This city council meeting will take place at 6:00 pm in the Council Chambers in City Hall at 613 East Broadway, Second Floor in Glendale.If you are unable to attend, please call AND e-mail the members of the Glendale City Council and urge them to OPPOSE any ordinance that would result in the closure of gun shows in Glendale. The telephone number to reach the City Council is (818) 548-4844.
