    City of Green Bay will NOT ban guns

    http://wtaq.com/news/articles/2011/o...ity-buildings/

    GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - Don’t worry about taking your gun off when entering a Green Bay city building.

    That’s after the council decided not to take action on an ordinance that would have banned guns and other weapons.

    The council voted to receive and place on file a draft ordinance that would ban guns open or conceal carry except in city restrooms.

    Alderman Chris Wery has been against banning guns since the beginning.

    "If we ban guns inside city buildings and put up signs to that effect, really what do we accomplish, it lets the bad guys know they can operate in an environment where he know he’s the only armed person.” Wery said at Tuesday night’s council meeting.

    “By passing this ordinance, you are restricting the law abiding citizens from exercising a right given to them under the constitution” said Brad Hopp from Green Bay who spoke against the ban.

    Alderpersons voting against receiving and placing on file were Ned Dorff, Amy Kocha, and Dan Haefs. Haefs was on the committee that drafted the ordinance. Kocha and Dorff wanted to send the proposal back to committee to work through questions raised by other alderman and citizens.

    Alderman Anthony Theisman says “we have people that have gun phobias, that’s all we have here.”

    Wisconsin’s new conceal carry law legalizes carrying into certain city excluding police and county courthouse, but the state allowed individual municipalities to ban guns from their property.

    WOW! That is HUGE! Congratulations to the folks here that drove that victory! You delivered more than a one-city win: I think the fact that you made Green Bay a protected community will influence other local governments.

    That's possible, although from the lack of media attending last nights council meeting ( one reporter from WBAY & the other reporter from>? more than likely WTAQ although I though he was with the Press Gazette. I have been know to be wrong from time to time.

    I don't disagree with you, I was just saying that I had already posted this news in the original City of GB thread. It's all good I think this calls for one of those HUGE burgers @ Doxbee's in Seymour

    Thank you!
    There were 4 of us last night who spoke out against this and no one spoke in support of it. The media coverage has been near zero from the beginning.
    Many communities are discussing bans but few if any are considering blanket bans like the Green Bay P&W committee was originally proposing. I E-mailed all of the TV stations to let them know about this fact well over a week ago before the last committee meeting but they didn't care.
