Vote today by City Council
The Memphis City Council has its third and final vote today on an ordinance to ban guns in all city parks. The ordinance is a response to the Tennessee legistlature lifting the state-wide ban. Councilman Harold Collins is sponsoring the bill, and Kemp Conrad has come out against it. Local governments are allowed to make their own bans, and Germantown and the Shelby County Commission have already done so for their respective parks. Read the CA article here.
