City gets behind the Second Amendment

-A A +A
By Mark Scohier, Staff writer

The ideals behind the right to bear arms are alive in well in Chiefland. Commissioners voted unanimously in favor of a resolution of support for the Second Amendment at Monday night's meeting.

"This is basically a feel-good measure," said Chiefland Mayor Teal Pomeroy, "But I'm in support of it."

There was no discussion among commissioners about what may have prompted the resolution, other than mention that Marion County had recently adopted something similar and a claim in the resolution that the current federal administration is somehow working to undermine the Second Amendment.

Still, despite the eventual approval of the resolution, there was some concern about its wording.

"I'm in support of the Second Amendment, also ..." said Commissioner Rollin Hudson, though, he said, parts of the resolution seemed to be a bit "negative."
