Second Amendment Foundation Warns City over Gun Disarmament

It appears some governing officials are revealing their hand on how they're going to bypass the Second Amendment, in of all places - Alabama - where you would think officials like that wouldn't be voted into office.

The Second Amendment Foundation (SAF) warned officials if they use a natural disaster or other emergencies as an excuse to disarm the citizens, they will face a lawsuit if the plans aren't dropped.

Saying it is only to "protect people," Guntersville Mayor Leigh Dollar has brought to the proposal to the city council for consideration on March 4.

SAF Executive Vice President Alan Gottlieb, responded saying this:
We recall what happened after Hurricane Katrina. New Orleans police forcefully disarmed peaceful, law-abiding citizens for no good reason until we stepped in with a federal lawsuit and stopped it. Local public officials occasionally need to be reminded that they were elected to serve the public, not rule over constituents or nullify their constitutional rights. What happened in New Orleans can never be allowed to happen again on American soil.
Gottlieb added the Second Amendment Foundation won't simply sit and watch this happen. He concluded that "The city of Guntersville has no legal authority to adopt or enforce such an ordinance."
