    Wisconsin: Green Bay Strikes Down Ordinance Against Open Carry in Parks!

    Wednesday, September 02, 2009

    Please Thank the Green Bay City Council Members!


    On Tuesday, September 1, the Green Bay City Council successfully defeated an anti-gun ordinance (8-3) that would have prohibited law-abiding gun owners from openly carrying firearms in parks.

    The ordinance (#32-09) was previously passed by the Parks Committee with only one dissenting vote (Alderman Dan Piton). Ordinance #32-09 would have violated Wisconsin’s firearms preemption law which prohibits localities from enacting laws more stringent than state law.

    Please contact the Green Bay City Council members listed below and thank them for blocking this anti-gun ordinance and protecting your Second Amendment Rights. You can find their contact information listed below.

    Cool! I think this is the first time I have seen the NRA actually use the term "Open Carry" and "Second Amendment Rights" in the same release, tying them together.

    Good question. That topic has not been addressed. Maybe you could request that information from the NRA?

    Mr. Deney's email address is the following

    Gays are prominent members of firearm rights, we do more via the courts, don't like it? Leave.
    Religious bigots against same sex marriage are not different than white supremacists.
    I expel anti-gay people off my teams. Tolerance is key to team cohesion and team building.

    Doesn't look like they are claiming they did anything; just asking NRA members to thank the city council members for their vote.
