Well, Mayor Leigh Dollar had noble intentions when she issued a proposed ordinance to allow police to disarm civilians following a disaster.
She’s probably heard the expression that the road to Hell is paved with good intentions.
Well, all Hell broke loose after her proposal. There was an explosion of outrage, not only among local residents, but nationally as news of the proposal quickly spread nationwide. Mayor Leigh Dollar and her city became a laughingstock to Americans across the nation (and a hero to a tiny handful of gun grabbers).
She and her fellow city council held a one-minute long meeting to officially withdraw the proposal and try to make things right.
And then they grovelled for forgiveness for their well-meaning stupidity.
Guntersville Council Withdraws Proposed Emergency Management Ordinance
GUNTERSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) – The city of Guntersville is not passing a law to let them take people’s guns away, and held a one minute long council session to make that clear.
Mayor Leigh Dollar said a proposed ordinance to establish municipal actions as needed in case of disaster of emergencies became misinterpreted and misrepresented.
“It was never the intent of the mayor or city council to take anyone’s guns away,” she said.
