If I was a City Council Challenger, I’d be busting my tale to work with this group and press the Manager, Council and Supt. of Police for a response to these Law Abiding citizens. To keep ignoring them is wrong and only encourages them to carry illegal because this Council who supposedly is for Public Safety is handcuffing Law Abiding Citizens simply because they live in Lowell. Are they trying to drive them out in favor of those who carry illegally? Here is a copy of the latest newsletter to those law abiding citizens who want the legal right to carry.
Thank you to all the Lowell residents who recently signed up for updates on this important issue. Here is a quick note to get you all up to speed:
It is now 7 months since we first brought this issue to the City Council. So far, we have heard no response from Chief Taylor, nor has anything changed in the city.
We need to make sure that our local officials know we are watching them. In order to make sure our officials know we are, many of residents on this list have been calling City Hall asking for updates.
I ask you to join them and inquire to anyone at City Hall why your rights are still being ignored.
All you need to do is call the offices listed below and ask whoever picks up the phone for an update on the change in the City’s policy. Ask about:
Tell them it has been 7 months since we first brought this before the City Council
How long it’s going to take
Most importantly: Make sure to ask that we see the policy changes before anything goes to the Council floor.
