Tucson City Council Draws Up New Gun-Control Package

posted on September 11, 2015

Focusing largely on a campus shooting that took place in 2002—more than a dozen years ago—City Council leaders in Tucson, Ariz., unanimously passed a memorial resolution asking firearms retailers to follow a set of procedures corresponding to the Brady Bill code of conduct. The articles in this resolution are generally vague, but the more concrete measures include not making a sale until a federal background check is complete and recording transactions on video for the use of police.

Local NRA spokesman Todd Rathner criticized the resolution in a statement reported by Tucson News Now: “We got a city full of potholes, we’re losing cops, we have a Sun Tran strike—and they’re fiddling around with nonsensical memorial resolutions that do absolutely nothing about crime.”
