View Full Version : Fayette Co. ALERT!

Fayette County is considering adopting a preempted ordinance on possession or use of firearms in its parks. Please see this GCO post (http://www.georgiacarry.org/cms/2007/05/08/fayette-county-considering-adopting-a-preempted-ordinance/) immediately!

Board of Commissioners meeting is this Thursday evening!

GCO's John Monroe was interviewed by the local newspaper, so hopefully the fact that this ordinance is preempted will make it into print before the meeting.

While we have been successful in repealing two of these ordinances, they are trying to sneak in a new one!

Please make plans to attend if possible. Even if you are not speaking, it helps for the Fayette County Board of Commissioners to see a crowd supporting those who will be speaking.

After the meeting, the group will meet to socialize at a local restaurant (looking for one without alcohol).

Victory for GCO!!!


Proposed Ordinance Removed from Fayette Agenda

GCO recieved the following email from Fayette County Commissioner Maxwell, and I provide it here after obtaining his permission:

Subject: Fayette County Weapons Ordinance

Ed & John,

The County Administrator has emailed me and indicated that the “weapons” ordinance has been taken off the Agenda for tomorrow. I believe that the Chairman will simply state that, “The item has been removed from the Agenda.” I do not anticipate any discussion (but you never know). I have personally spoken with two other Commissioners that are against the proposed ordinance (I am opposed as well) so I see no way that the ordinance would pass. The Commission probably does need to address vandalism and fireworks. If this thing heats up I will get you involved, hopefully before it makes the papers this time. I do want to say thank you for your diligent monitoring of our Second Amendment.


Thanks to those who contacted their Fayette County Commissioners in opposition to the proposed gun ban ordinance.
