Iowa: Knoxville Gun Ban Proposal to be Heard Monday!

Friday, November 18, 2011

On Monday, November 21, the Knoxville City Council intends to consider a gun-ban that would deny law-abiding Iowans the ability to lawfully carry firearms in any city-owned building.

This proposed ordinance is a direct violation of Iowa’s firearm preemption statute. State law prohibits any county, town, or municipality from imposing local firearm laws that do not conform with the statewide standard. Since current state law does not forbid possession of a handgun in these areas by a person with a valid permit to carry weapons, Knoxville may not legally do so either.

Plan to attend the Knoxville City Council meeting - which will be held this Monday, November 21 at 6:15 p.m. at the City Hall - and voice your opposition to this anti-gun measure.

In addition, please contact members of the Knoxville City Council and urge them to oppose this gun ban.
To e-mail city council members, please visit the following page on the Knoxville City Council’s website: www.discoverknoxville.com/?page&id=11&dir1=cityofknoxville 

Also, please contact Mayor Donald Zoutte at 641-891-0510 and respectfully ask him to veto this anti-gun proposal, should is reach his desk.
