Webber sets sights on constitutional amendment to allow cities, counties to regulate guns

Gun Rights

Mayor Alan Webber has long championed ideas to confront the scourge of gun violence, from designating certain city-owned properties as gun-free zones to mulling a tax on ammunition.

Now Webber is pushing a proposal to repeal a provision of the state constitution that prevents local governments from regulating firearms as they so choose.

As part of a resolution establishing the city’s priorities for the upcoming 30-day legislative session, Webber is calling on the Legislature to place a constitutional referendum on the ballot asking voters statewide to remove a preemption statute that states “no municipality or county shall regulate, in any way, an incident of the right to keep and bear arms.”
