LD578: An Act To Allow Municipalities To Restrict the Possession of Firearms in Certain Circumstances
Senator Katz (R-Augusta) has written An Act To Allow Municipalities To Restrict the Possession of Firearms in Certain Circumstances. The bill summary states:
This bill provides a municipal legislative body with the authority to adopt an ordinance that restricts the carrying of firearms in the municipality's essential municipal offices and places of legislative assembly just as the State imposes those restrictions in its capitol area.
So, in effect, is he opening the door for municipalities to enact stronger anti-gun laws than enacted by the Legislature.
Couple this with the "gang of 8" letter, and I'm starting to become convinced that it's time for Katz to go, and I don't give a rat's behind how many years he and his father have served.
