Corrupt City Governments Fail in Their Attempts to Kill Second Amendment
Municipalities violate state laws and their own city charters with anti-gun ordinances
December 2, 2013
Local governments across the country are trying unsuccessfully to enact gun control through city ordinances even though such attempts violate the Bill of Rights, state laws and even their own city charters.
Recently, cities in North Carolina were prevented from enforcing gun bans in conflict with state law and the Town of Bethany Beach, Delaware was stopped from closing down a legally-licensed gun store.
Last year, a Bethany Beach resident wanted the Town Council and the mayor to prohibit Bethany Cycle and Fitness from selling and transferring firearms even though the bike shop had obtained a Federal Firearms License from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms.
“Selling guns in Bethany Beach doesn’t fit with the image we’re trying to project,” the resident said according to the Daily Times. “I don’t see why it’s necessary. It’s a family resort with a lot of retired persons.”
“It’s simply not the venue for selling guns.”
