Pierce County, WA Members! Please Attend The County Hearing This Tuesday!
Monday, March 8, 2004
NRA members who reside in Pierce County must contact their County Council Members. An existing ordinance (Chapter 9.32.020) has been discovered on the books that makes it unlawful to possess or dispose of firearms. Although such a law is both unconstitutional and contrary to state statutes, the County Council needs to address this issue by repealing the existing ordinance. Proposal 2003-135, an ordinance to repeal Chapter 9.32.020, is scheduled for a hearing on March 9, at 3:00 p.m., at the County City building, 930 Tacoma Ave., South, Room 1046, Tacoma. It is imperative that NRA members attend the hearing to support removing this gun ban from the books. If you are unable to attend, please contact members of the County Council and urge them to REPEAL Chapter 9.32.020, the ban on firearm possession.
