LIES: Tucson council backs down on gun control, says hands tied by Legislature
This is nonsense. They can’t do it because they know that the people would revolt and would not have a job next time an election comes around.
Tucsonans should probably not expect their City Council to pass another restriction on guns or related accessories, such as rifle “bump stocks.”
A new legal analysis by City Attorney Mike Rankin makes it clear that Arizona cities and towns lack the statutory authority to enact such laws. Additionally, he noted, the state has several legal mechanisms in place to tie the hands of local authorities and even punish them for trying in the first place.
