Oak Ridge Town Council
Good news. The latest proposed ordinance designed to violate the spirit of the new law allowing concealed carry within parks has failed in a 3 to 2 vote. This one was in the town of Oak Ridge. Your voice was heard much to the chagrin of some of the council members who whined about receiving over one hundred emails on the subject. One lamented being “offended” by receiving so many “form” emails. We naturally look forward to offending anti-gun council members across this state – with your help — whenever this issue arises and for as long as it takes.
Congratulate yourself, but don’t rest too easy. This issue may not be totally put to bed in Oak Ridge. Several council members indicated that they had problems with the wording of the current ordinance, so it may well roll back around with different wording. We’ll keep you posted.
