Needles, CA: Needles City Council will be discussing on Tuesday declaring the City of Needles a Second Amendment Sanctuary City.
Members of the Needles City Council are planning to discuss declaring the City of Needles a Second Amendment Sanctuary City.
According to the agenda item packet released from the City of Needles, California has strict gun laws in comparison to neighboring states. Gun laws are set by the California Legislature. The federal constitution provides protections for citizens to “keep and bear arms” Arizona Residents will not come here because of gun laws and business opportunities are being missed, Needles City Council Member Timothy Terral.
Councilor Terral’s request is to declare the City of Needles a Second Amendment Sanctuary City and to consider any or all of the following:
- To request that the Sheriff not enforce weapons violations by California, Nevada and Arizona residents.
- To request that the Legislature allow an exemption to California gun laws for the City of Needles and within a 65 miles radius of Needles.
- To request that the Legislature allow reciprocity of concealed weapons permits with Nevada and Arizona.
Fiscal Impact would be for the cost of research and ordinance preparation.
Members of the Needles City Council will be asked to provide direction regarding this matter.
The discussion is schedule for 6:00 p.m. PT on Tuesday, June 11th, 2019 inside the Needles City Council Chambers, located at 1111 Bailey Avenue near J Street, in Needles, California.
