Carroll County Commissioners: ‘Firearms’ to come off ordinance’

This is from an article in the Times-Georgian.com by Winston Jones 02/01/13

The Carroll County Board of Commissioners plans to amend its current disaster ordinance to avoid conflicting with Second Amendment issues raised by a Georgia gun rights organization.

The proposed ordinance eliminates the word “firearms” from a list of items whose sales could be suspended in case of a local disaster declared by the county commission chairman. The wording was questioned in a Jan. 18 letter hand delivered to commission Chairman Marty Smith by James Camp, of Temple, representing GeorgiaCarry.org.

The proposed ordinance was presented to the BOC at its Wednesday work session. It will likely be brought up for vote at Tuesday’s 6 p.m. regular monthly meeting.
