Alabama Mayor Wants Emergency Gun Grab Measure

Alabama Mayor Wants Emergency Gun Grab Measure
Mayor Leigh Dollar of Guntersville, Ala., has proposed an ordinance that would give police the authority to confiscate weapons in the event of a major disaster.

The mayor of an Alabama city has proposed a disaster emergency ordinance that would give police the authority to confiscate weapons in the event of a major disaster.

Guntersville Mayor Leigh Dollar says the ordinance would ensure a quick response in the event of a major disaster.

“By no means is it our intent to disarm or seize anyone’s firearms,” she told WAAY TV. “This is in there to protect public workers and any volunteers helping should someone become unruly–and it can happen because emotions are high–that it would give an officer that authority. And it’s only to protect people. We are not trying to infringe on anyone’s Constitutional authority.”

And there is the code word phrase I told you about Monday.  “It’s only to protect people.” All liberty-stealing laws are couched so as to keep people safe.

No word on how those people who have their guns taken away are going to protect themselves from looters.
