    Eureka Springs City Council Doesn't Want Guns In their City

    Here is a YouTube video of the Eureka Springs Arkansas City Council Meeting last night, discussing ACT 746 and open carry in their community; this sure does make me thankful for the local government and Law Enforcement we have here in Scott County. Eureka Springs is a Tourist Town frequented by thousands of people each year, feel free to email the City Council and let them know you won't be spending a dime in their community if they infringe on the citizens civil rights. Act 746 became law last year and they simply refuse to allow open carry in their town.

    Also here is the link to their local news paper's FaceBook Page; feel free to leave a statement there as well. Please be firm, but civil making public statements.

    ~25 minutes. Basically, they are trying to tie open carry to peaceable journey. <~~~~25 Minutes into the VID.

    Groups like this are one of the reasons we have state preemption here.

    It would be helpful if you would let us know at what time in the video they start talking about the subject of this post in the hour+ long video.

    It seems to me that the fix for this is to get arrested for open carry then sue the city for wrongful arrest.

    746 is not completely without question. The legislatures really confused the general public when they passed this one. In fact, one report stated that one of our wonderful elected officials stated "he thought he was voting for NO open carry" while another thought he was voting "FOR" open carry. My personal opinion, and you know how that goes, we all have one. I'm not in favor of it. Although I am definitely in favor of the CCW laws. Why aggravate the issue?

    Then point this out to the council and politely tell them to stuff it. But be nice!

    If Arkansas has an Atty. General he should immediately step in to correct this. File charges on the city council and the mayor and the chief of police. Perhaps the possibility of a court trial and jail time will change their minds.

    It's about the same distance for us if we travel to Eureka Springs, or Branson. So with this in mind, I guess we'll just make it Branson, and cross Eureka Springs off our list. Win win situation for Branson, Lose, Lose for Eureka Springs.

    Provided one has the wherewithal to pay all the fines and attorney fees involved court costs and don't forget the up your butt fees. That's of course barring the city appealing the judicial decision in the first trial while your adversary waits to see who quits breathing first you the defendant or the plaintiff.

    Yeah there ain't NO WAY I'm going to sit through possibly one hour and fifteen minutes of a bunch of slacker city council NAZI SS trooper wannabe whining or musings to get to the good stuff. No Way Hosea!!

    Be sure to eat at least a dozen deviled eggs and 12 cans of that nasty Budweiser beer first. If the beer and deviled eggs don't make your flatulence reek sufficiently try some genuine Lutefisk from Iceland. An individual I knew 20 years ago drank Bud while snacking on deviled eggs the night before and boy howdy when George let er rip it was as bad or worse than when old Pelligrini took his #2's in our locker room. Both guys had flatulence that compared to the odor of the liquid chicken manure
    farmers out my way spray on their fields in the spring here. It's similar to the stench of Alaskan fish fertilizer only far far worse!!!!!!! Pee You!!!!

    That is another thing North Dakota did right. No city or township may enact any laws more restrictive than state law.
