Kozachik: No more gun shows at Tucson Convention Center

Source: Arizona Daily Star (Tucson)

Gun shows could be a thing of the past at the Tucson Convention Center if
Councilman Steve Kozachik gets his way.

Kozachik wants to prohibit gun shows on city-owned property until either
the state legislature or the U.S. Congress passes a bill requiring
background checks on all gun sales.

“Continuing to allow person-to-person gun sales without the requirement
of any background checks is a clear threat to the health and safety of
the community. If any place has a right to be sensitive about that,
Tucson does,” Kozachik said.

“It’s my belief, and I’m hearing it daily now, that we should take a leadership
position in saying “no” to gun shows on public property until the state or the
feds fix the clear gap in the law that allows people to buy weapons without
the seller having any knowledge of who they are or what their background is.”

1. I love this idea. But Arizonans presently love guns too much.

 

Shame them. They love what they think is liberty. But they are misguided fools. Wake up Arizonans!

3. I'm an Arizonan and I don't love guns, neither does my husband,

nor any friends, unless they're keeping it secret.

4. eBless you! I'm counting on you being counted every time!

 

Is your husband on the rolls? Have you done anything meaningful to erase (and I mean any influence of) his influence?

6. Thank you, Ptah, for this great news!!!

... Dayam, I have to start a list of all the progress that is being made on all fronts in the U.S. these days. The Chief of Police up in Waterbury, CT did the same thing... at least he's not signing any event permits from gun shows until further notice. But this is Tucson, AZ! Yeah and double back flips!

8. I find the news events bearing more and more good news ... noticed a distinct increase after the

impressive and politically powerful re-election of President Obama. It's almost like whole same-old-same-old wave was ready to swing back to the right, but lo and behold ... to quote Gomer Pyle ... surprise, surprise surprise.

I first noticed it (not counting Rove's public meltdown) when Orly Taitz gave up her witch hunt...the birthers almost disappeared...the gun conversation actually came up for real...gay rights...lots of "small" things", but in our voter way we said definitively, Please proceed, Mr. President. Glad we stayed the course.

9. We laugh when a lone repuke says he will file for impeachment

but think a lone city council member is a major sea change?

11. Not a sea change...

...but a ripple that gets noticed. Demands respect. Demands that attention must be paid.

10. This is my Councilmember

Hi everyone - I'm a DU progressive & I work in Councilman Kozachik's district. He just announced this week that he has officially put in his paperwork to become a Dem. from a Rep. He's the real deal folks - he has been lambasted by Frank Antenori locally (a Rep. who just lost his legislative seat) for working with Dems. Mr. K is embraced by local Progressives (I know that AZ has a bad rep BUT Raul Grijalva, is MY Congressman from Tucson!!). Councilman K is one of the good guys - for real.
