Roanoke City Council Considering Gun Ban in Municipal Buildings

 The Roanoke Times has the story here.

The council scheduled a public hearing for 7 p.m. Jan. 19 as it considers an ordinance to prohibit people from carrying guns inside the Noel C. Taylor Municipal Building, a goal of present and past council members for at least four years. Without discussion, the council set the public hearing as part of its consent agenda during Monday’s regular meeting.
If you live in Roanoke City, contact your council member and let them know you oppose this ordinance.  Also plan to speak at the public hearing on the 19th.   Roanoke City Council meetings are held in the City Council Chamber on the fourth floor of the Noel C. Taylor Municipal Building, located at 215 Church Avenue SW, Roanoke, Virginia 24011.  You can sign up to speak by clicking here.
