Proposed Omaha, Nebraska City Council Ordinance Calls For Destruction of Firearms

Friday, August 24, 2007

On Tuesday, August 28 the Omaha City Council will consider a proposed ordinance aimed at reducing crime in the city.  Part of the proposal calls for the destruction of any firearm used in a crime.  This proposal will destroy the property of law-abiding gun owners who have already been victimized by having their firearm stolen from them. 

 

Councilman Chuck Sigerson, Jr. is proposing an amendment that would allow a legally-owned firearm that has been stolen and used in a crime to be returned to the rightful owner, as long as it was reported stolen to police. 

 

Please attend the City Council meeting and protect our Second Amendment and private property rights.

 

Tuesday, August 28 

2:00pm

1819 Farnam St.

Suite LC-1

Omaha, NE 68183

 

If you are unable to attend the meeting, please contact the members of the City Council and respectfully urge them to support Councilman Sigerson’s amendment to protect firearms stolen from law-abiding citizens from being destroyed.
