APPEARS IN Legal & Legislation

Attention Columbus, Ohio! Your Help is Needed!

Tuesday, July 12, 2005

Despite overwhelming opposition from NRA members, Peoples Rights Organization members, and other law-abiding gun owners in Columbus, the ban on so-called "assault weapons" passed unanimously 6-0 during Monday night's Columbus City Council meeting. This legislation far exceeds the recently expired federal semi-automatic ban, making it the worst of its kind. Safety Committee Chair Mr. Mentel and other council members have taken it upon themselves to dismantle the rights of law-abiding citizens in Columbus by passing this vehemently anti-gun ordinance.

Below you will find the contact information for Mayor Michael Coleman and your city council members. Please contact the Mayor's office and urge him to veto this unnecessary legislation. In addition, call your council members and voice your frustration regarding this blatant attack on your Second Amendment rights. Please keep apprised of any updates concerning this gun control legislation.
