Knoxville Guns In Parks Vote Tonight!

Knoxville Guns In Parks Vote Tonight!


The Knoxville City Council will be holding the first of two proposed votes tonight on whether to repeal the decades old ban on firearms in City parks. The proposed repeal will fail tonight if there is not enough support for the new motion to allow Tennessee Handgun Permit holders to carry in the City parks, following the new State law allowing for Permit holders to carry in local and State parks.

According to the Knoxville News Sentinel

Rob Frost

Barbara Pelot

Chris Woodhull

Vice Mayor Bob Becker

Are all against the measure. Let these people know where we stand!

Ask Mayor Haslam to take a stand!

Mayor Haslam once joined Mayor Bloomberg's anti-2nd amendement group. Now that he is running for Governor, he says that he has seen the light and now supports the 2nd Amendment. Mayor Haslam has enough influence over City Council to see that the ordinance allowing permit holders to carry in the parks and on the greenways passes if he will make a stand. Call Mayor Haslam today and let him know that gun owners will not trust him as Governor if he does not stand up for us as Mayor.

Mayor Bill Haslam - 215-2040 (office) 215-2978 (fax)
