Youngstown council unanimously opposes Ohio's proposed stand-your-ground law



Published: Wed, September 18, 2013 @ 7:52 p.m.

YOUNGSTOWN — City council unanimously voted today in support of a resolution to oppose a Stand Your Ground law in Ohio and to a federal proposal for national reciprocity for concealed-carry handgun permits.

Youngstown is the latest in the state to pass similar resolutions against this resolution joining Cincinnati, Toledo, Dayton and South Euclid.

Also, council failed today to approve legislation to authorize the administration to seek proposals from firms to redistrict the city’s seven wards.

The vote was 5-2 in favor of the proposal. But for legislation to be approved by an emergency vote, at least six members of council must support that.

The two no votes came from council members who were satisfied with the redistricting maps provided by Youngstown State University’s Center for Urban and Regional Studies.

Council will need to take three votes at three separate meetings to approve the legislation.

This little piece provides more than enough substantive evidence to prove that Youngstown City Council is worthless, ineffective and self serving.

Agreed. Do I need a special law to protect myself? Let's wait for Youngstown to clean everything up and make my world safe.

Guns on the streets are the problem and not the answer!

LET'S GET ALL OF THE GUNS OFF THE STREETS.

What is wrong with you people? Stand your ground is a way for law abiding citizens to protect themselves in dangerous situations. Yes, G.Z. used it to kill a teenager, but that doesn't mean it needs to be abolished. Take a weekend and go to a gun safety course and learn more about firearms. Hopefully you can overcome your media-driven fear.

And Excel, smh...
