    If only I had unlimited money to fight such stupid things.

    I would love to walk into the library while open carrying and try to check out a copy of the Constitution.

    It would make a great article. I think even the anti's could see the connection.
    There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.

    Gun ban signs at library removed

    Notices of a gun ban have been removed at the Jackson-Madison County Library's north branch, said Richard Salmons, library director.


    Salmons said the signs were taken down over the weekend, though he did not know specifically why. But firearms are still banned under library policy, he said.

    Arlene Griffin, who manages the north branch, declined comment Tuesday.

    There will still be a review of the gun policy at today's Library Board meeting, said Sharon Younger, the board's chairwoman.

    But, "It's certainly not the focus of the meeting," she said.

    Michael Stone, the board member who called for the discussion, said he got what he wanted when the signs came down.

    "It's pretty much a given you don't take a gun in the library to begin with, and you don't need that kind of gaudy signage," Stone said. "I don't think anybody's going to come in with one to begin with."

    Griffin posted the signs after a regular visitor asked if he could bring a gun into the small branch in the Kroger shopping center off North Highland Avenue.

    The man told library staff that he had left his gun, which he has a permit to carry, in his car and that he did not know if the library was among the places where he was not allowed to carry the weapon.

    The signs upset gun permit holders, including City Councilman Randy Wallace. Wallace told The Jackson Sun this month that he thought the notices would attract criminals to the library by advertising the fact that no one is armed there.

    The board meets at 3:30 p.m. today at the library's main branch on East Lafayette Street in Jackson.

    Only his constituents can do that, of course, and I don't know if they are sufficiently mobilized to do so or not.... Here's to hoping they "un-elect" him, though.
