Ed: We could not be happier about this outcome!  Remember kids, we’re a Representative Democracy, not a Democracy.  (as we have heard it defined: “Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote. “)

It was standing room only Monday night at the Jackson County Board of Commissioners meeting with more than 200 people crowding into the meeting room to oppose a proposed gun ordinance.The BOC quickly voted at the start of the meeting to reject any ordinance that would stop the firing of guns in residential areas of the county. Commissioners Tom Crow, Chas Hardy, Dwain Smith and Bruce Yates all voted in opposition to the proposal. BOC chairman Hunter Bicknell was not present at the meeting.After the vote was taken, comments were taken from those present at the meeting. Eight people spoke in opposition to a gun ordinance and no one spoke in favor of it. Most of those in the audience were wearing “no gun control” stickers.
