Mayor Leigh Dollar is working with City officials to pass an ordinance that would give police the power to "disarm individuals" during a disaster.

The new rule would allow authorities to confiscate guns of "unruly" people during an extreme weather event, such as the April 2011 tornadoes.

Police already have the power to arrest "unruly" individuals. There is no need to trample the 2nd Amendment.

This type of action was undertaken by the New Orleans Police Dept. following Katrina, and was later ruled unconstitutional by the Supreme Court. Many of the New Orleans citizens still havent gotten their weapons back.

Call Mayor Dollar and tell her what you think.

This Mayor needs to go. Don't surrender your second amendment. Ask the honest folks from Katrina. Mayor Dollar should not be in politics. Vote this mayor out next election.

Better yet, contact businesses like FLW and there supporters let them know your dollars will not go to supporting mayors and cities that trample our God given Gun rights.
I do not believe a city such as Guntersville will allow this anti second admendment mayor another term.

My wife & children rode out Katrina in our Mississippi home. Here are the facts of the situation post-Katrina:

Louisiana - cesspool wracked by crime, violence, and mayhem. Gun confiscation in effect.

Mississippi - cordial and friendly citizens quietly recovering from the storm. No gun confiscation.

After Katrina we were out of power & water for weeks. Criminals did not dare molesting the good citizens of Mississippi because they knew homes were well armed.

What problem is Guntersville trying to solve? My wife and I were in Arab for the tornadoes. I do not remember there being a problem with armed law-abiding citizens.

The liberal Mayor is trying to solve one of the Democrat Party's oldest problems. Law abiding citizens with guns.

she's just another liberial who don't like the average person having the right to own guns. she needs to be recalled for attempting to violate the citizens of your cities rights and abuse of power. if you give people like this an inch they will take every right you have.

Mrs. Dollar is more a puppet than a Mayor. Her father George Barnett is a local attorney and a former Mayor himself. Mrs. Dollar is wholly unqualified to be Mayor. When you factor in the good ole boy network and the laws that her father broke when building his development above the chamber of commerce I was stunned that she won the election. I guess the good ole boys had the candidate they wanted didnt they?
