    Wisconsin: Green Bay to Consider Banning the Possession of Firearms in City Parks



    Saturday, August 29, 2009




    Please Stand-Up and Make Your Voices Heard!

    On Tuesday, September 1, the Green Bay City Council will consider an ordinance that would ban the possession of firearms in all city parks. Ordinance #32-09 was passed by the Parks Committee with the only dissenting vote being Alderman Dan Piton. Ordinance #32-09 is a blatant violation of Wisconsin’s firearms preemption law that prohibits localities from enacting laws more stringent than state law.



    The City Attorney is incorrectly interpreting state law with regard to limited firearms prohibitions on state parks and thusly feels justified in introducing a city parks ban. The law clearly states that:



    “Chapter 66.0409



    (2) Except as provided in $x=Advanced#0-0-0-103687]subs. (3) and $x=Advanced#0-0-0-103689](4), no political subdivision may enact an ordinance or adopt a resolution that regulates the sale, purchase, purchase delay, transfer, ownership, use, keeping, possession, bearing, transportation, licensing, permitting, registration or taxation of any firearm or part of a firearm, including ammunition and reloader components, unless the ordinance or resolution is the same as or similar to, and no more stringent than, a state statute.”



    State law makes no mention of prohibitions on the possession of firearms in city parks. According to state statute, firearms in city parks are allowed; therefore, a ban on firearms possession would be more stringent than state law.



    Please contact the Green Bay Aldermen and respectfully urge them to vote “NO” on ordinance # 32-09. Also, please thank Alderman Piton for being the lone voice of opposition to this illegal and unjust proposal. Contact information can be found below.

    The NRA should be all over this one. The Green Bay mayor is a homie of the Bloomberg-Dailyanti-constitution gang "Mayors Against Guns."

    Still waiting forWisconsin Guns Ownersto speak up against what is happening in their headquarters city.
    When in danger you can dial 911 and hope for the police to arrive a few minutes later armed with guns.
    Why do police carry guns?

    Hmmm. NRA and WGO have similar business models. Why expect them to be different?

    Who is the customer in this context? To me, the customer is the one to be satisfied as in "the customer is always right."

    NRA members are subscribers, in every sense of the word, even though they have no understanding of 'subscription' or to what they are subscribing.

    John Hancock is a subscriber to the Constitution of the United States, pledging his Life, his Fortune and his Sacred Honor.

    The NRA emperor has no clothes.
