Indiana: Gun Ban Voted Down by Council!

Tuesday, June 24, 2008

Please Contact the Council Members Today! 

On Monday, June 23, the South Bend Common Council decided not to consider a proposal that would have banned the possession and carrying of firearms on city-owned property. While the measure is technically still alive, it appears that the Common Council will officially table this misguided proposal at its next regularly scheduled meeting.  

Special thanks to the numerous NRA members from throughout Indiana, the Second Amendment Patriots and the Indiana State Rifle and Pistol Association members for contacting South Bend officials and urging them to set aside the proposed gun ban.   

Please continue contacting the members of the council to ensure that they table this outrageous measure.
