The Council Member and the Gun Guy

I support gun rights and the Second Amendment. But guns don’t belong in the chambers of City Councils and other places of public debate and discussion.

Take the recent situation that faced my friend and Allen City Council member Lauren Doherty. After she voted against a proposed rezoning, which would allow a gun range and shop to open in the city, three citizens spoke to Council to demand her resignation. (The measure passed; Doherty was the only Council member voting against the measure.)
