Wisconsin Police Chief Won’t Enforce Gun Ban
The police chief of Oconomowoc, Wisconsin will not enforce an ordinance banning guns from city property. The controversy arose after a local mother complained about a dad toting a gun while playing with his kids in a public park.
The police chief, David R. Beguhn, reviewed the woman’s complaint and declared the city ordinance invalid, saying the citizens have a right to carry guns.
According to GunsSaveLives.net, the chief said the ordinance is invalid because of Wisconsin’s “preemption laws on firearms.” He has ordered signs banning guns to be taken down and pledged that he will not enforce the ban even while the signs are up.
Wisconsin Carry: receives credit for bringing the Wisconsin “preemption” to everyone’s attention, and Chief Beguhn has followed up by choosing not to enforce an outdated ordinance.
You know those little signs that say “gun-free zone,” which supposedly send armed criminals packing? Oconomowoc residents can ignore those now. The police chief isn’t going to pretend this ordinance effects anyone other than the law-abiding. Second Amendment 1, Million Mom Marchers 0.
