    It will be interesting to see how this plays out in court considering the state's preemption law. That being said I hope my fellow Mississippians in the Jackson area rise up and tell their respective council members that a yes vote will necessitate a no vote on Election Day.

    I can see where Jackson is looking to be sued. Too many court cases overriding what they want to implement. Some people just never learn (especially elected officials).

    A check of the demographics of this liberal; sinking city, is all that is necessary to explain the push for such siiliness.

    If the state has a preemption law this is a non-starter. They are specifically written to keep Buford T. Justice and Boss Hogg from creating their own little kingdom.

    Limited Preemption like most states allow.

    Preemption
    ~
    Complete state preemption of firearms laws except localities may regulate the carrying of firearms
    ~
    ◾In public parks
    ◾At public meetings of a county, municipality or other governmental body
    ◾At a political rally, parade or official political meeting
    ◾At a nonfirearm-related school, college or professional athletic event

    With that in mind some of the ordinance will stand and some will not pass the test. Go figure. The town council wants you to be safe in some places and not safe in other places. So it comes back to the citizens taking the stand that if they vote for the ordinance they (citizens) will vote against the council members and will be very vocal about it.
    I'd rather be a Conservative Nutjob. Than a Liberal with NO Nuts & NO Job

    So they don't have a true preemption, mor like a preemption-lite. Gotta love those loopholes... I wonder how broad the definition of "official political meeting" can be.
