The Apache Junction City Council will be conducting a public hearing and vote on their proposal to define the city's weapons disposal policy on Tuesday, February 20, at 7:00 p.m., in the Apache Junction (AJ) Municipal Court, 300 E. Superstition Blvd.
NRA brought you the news last year that the AJ Police Chief disposed of thousands of firearms held in the evidence room that could have been sold back to the community or used for trade for much needed equipment. This was allowed because there had been no policy related to the disposal of confiscated firearms. Now that the City Council has worked to form a policy, it is vital that NRA members show up at the hearing to voice their support.
Please either attend the meeting or call your Councilmember as soon as possible. Councilmember contact information can be found at www.ajcity.net/mayor_council/mayorcouncil.htm.
