Indiana: South Bend Common Council to Consider Ban on Right-to-Carry!

Friday, June 20, 2008

Please Voice Your Opposition Today!

On Monday, June 23, the South Bend Common Council is scheduled to consider a proposal to ban the possession and carrying of firearms on all city-owned property, even by Right-to-Carry permit holders. While details of the proposal are not currently available, it is clear that from prior committee discussion, the full Council will consider a measure that will restrict the rights of law-abiding gun owners and render them defenseless against criminal attack.

Just last year, Governor Mitch Daniels (R) issued an Executive Order allowing law-abiding gun owners to possess and carry firearms in State Parks. Since enactment of the Executive Order, there hasn't been a single incident involving lawful possession and carrying in State Parks, yet the South Bend Common Council is moving forward with its proposal.

Please make every effort to attend Monday night's meeting and strongly encourage the Common Council to protect your right to defend yourself and your loved ones by rejecting this measure. Regardless of whether or not you can attend, please contact the Common Council members listed below and urge them to oppose this misguided proposal.

Bear in mind, if enacted, this ordinance would apply to all gun owners, not just those living in South Bend!

Monday, June 23, 7:00 p.m.
