More on Boone and the Second Amendment
From Boone Tea Party...
The Boone Town Council will be voting on whether to ban citizens with concealed carry permits to carry or any town property, including parks such as the Greenway. If you'd like to see what was actually said, you can watch the meeting where this was discussed here (starting at 46 minutes in): http://tob.pegcentral.com/player.php?video=7e8e713375379a99d3a04de5244599c5The town attorney apparently has not yet drafted the legislation.Concealed carry owners are five times less likely to commit crime compared to the general populace, and making it illegal for citizens to defend themselves will not prevent criminals from committing acts of violence. If any of you are against this encroachment on the Second Amendment, make your voices heard. Our first step is to call the Town Council members and let them know that this would not make us safer and we do not support it.
