Tennessee: Clarksville City Council to Consider Repealing Ban on Firearms in Parks on February 3

Tuesday, February 1, 2011

Please contact the Mayor and Members of the City Council Today!

 This Thursday, February 3, the Clarksville City Council will meet to consider Resolution 37-2010-11, a repeal of the 2009 ban on firearms in locally owned or operated parks.  The meeting will be held at 7:00 p.m. in the Council Chambers located at 106 Public Square. 

 The repeal, offered by Councilman Wallace Redd (Ward 4) and supported by Councilman Nick Steward (Ward 1), would enable residents and visitors with a handgun carry permit to legally carry a firearm for self-defense in Clarksville’s parks. 

A public comment period will start at 6:30 p.m., where each person will be allowed a maximum of five minutes to speak.  Any supporters of the repeal wishing to address the city council need to first make a request to the City Clerk by noon tomorrow, Wednesday, February 2.  When submitting your request, please include your name and Resolution 37-2010-11.  To contact the City Clerk, please call (931) 645-7497 or send an e-mail to sylvia.skinner@cityofclarksville.com.

If you are unable to attend, please contact the members of the Clarksville City Council and respectfully urge them to support Resolution 37-2010-11 and our right to self-defense in Clarksville.  Contact information for city council members can be found at http://www.cityofclarksville.com/citycouncil/index.php.  Please contact Mayor Kim McMillan in support of the repeal at (931) 645-7444 or by e-mail at kim.mcmillan@cityofclarksville.com.
