On Wednesday, June 5, an important public hearing will be held for residents of Belknap County to voice their opposition to the proposed Gun-Free Laconia Bike Week—a proposal that seeks to create a "gun-free" zone in Laconia during Bike Week 2002, which will run from June 8 - 16. It is critical that gun owners and sportsmen attend the public hearing to show opposition to this unneeded and excessive proposal. The hearing will be held at Laconia City Hall, located at 45 Beacon Street East. The meeting will begin at 6:30 p.m. in the 2nd Floor Large Conference Room. Please plan on attending this important meeting which will determine your freedoms during Laconia Bike Week. Your presence will make a difference!
