California: Glendale City Council Playing Games with Proposed Ordinance to Ban Gun Shows

Thursday, January 17, 2013

Your Attendance at the City Council Meeting on Tuesday is Critical!

Glendale City Councilman Rafi Manoukian is trying to exploit emotions from the Connecticut tragedy to pass an anti-gun ordinance which would only affect and penalize law-abiding firearms owners, instead of focusing on meaningful measures relating to school safety, mental health issues, marketing of violence as entertainment for our children and the collapse of federal prosecutions of violent criminals.  The Glendale City Council moved its discussion and possible vote of this onerous anti-gun proposal from this week to Tuesday, January 22.  We are sure this move was made in hopes of less pro-gun citizens attending the next city council meeting who would express their opposition to Manoukian's proposed anti-gun ordinance.  It is critical that you attend for this city council meeting to help to stop passage of this egregious proposed anti-gun ordinance.

At its meeting earlier this week, the city council members changed the procedures that were previously announced and would not let citizens speak until the end of the meeting against this proposed ordinance that would ultimately ban the Glendale gun show. City council members would not even listen to ideas from its citizens on child safety or supporting an NRA Eddie Eagle GunSafe® Program which teaches children from pre-K to third grade gun accident prevention.  Your attendance for the city council meeting on Tuesday is crucial.

Gun shows in California are heavily regulated. All firearms sales, including private and gun show sales, transfers or loans, must go through a California licensed firearms dealer with a ten-day waiting period before delivery of any firearm.  This proposed anti-gun ordinance will do nothing to stop criminals or lunatics from committing acts of violence and will only prevent law-abiding gun owners from exercising their Second Amendment rights.

The next city council meeting will be held on Tuesday, January 22 at 6:00 pm in the Council Chambers in City Hall at 613 East Broadway, Second Floor in Glendale.  If you are unable to attend, please call AND e-mail members of the Glendale City Council and urge them to OPPOSE any ordinance that would result in the closure of gun shows in Glendale.  Also, please forward this message to your family, friends and fellow gun owners who reside in Glendale and urge them to attend the city council meeting.  The telephone number to reach the City Council is (818) 548-4844.
