Yesterday our own Notamobster brought to our attention the fact that the council and Mayor of Guntersville, Alabama was trying to pass an ordinance to allow police to confiscate guns in case of emergency. He wrote a letter to them and, it seems that others noticed it as well. Today they reversed their action.
“Guntersville Council Withdraws Proposed Emergency Management Ordinance
The city of Guntersville is not passing a law to let them take people’s guns away, and held a one minute long council session to make that clear.
Mayor Leigh Dollar said a proposed ordinance to establish municipal actions as needed in case of disaster of emergencies became misinterpreted and misrepresented.
“It was never the intent of the mayor or city council to take anyone’s guns away,” she said.”
