Northborough, MA -(AmmoLand.com)- Last night was a great first step towards defeating Article 34, Lexington's proposed firearms ban.
Lexington citizens were joined by neighbors from surrounding towns, one after another they spoke out against Article 34 and any attempt at infringing our natural rights. When the last person had given testimony, Lexington's Chief Corr joined with the citizens and spoke out against the article.
Next, the board of selectmen asked Mr. Rotberg what he would like to do, if he would like to continue to submit the article as a bylaw amendment, or as a resolution.
Interestingly enough, Mr. Rotberg chose to put the onus on the selectmen, so they spoke out. One after another they refused to support Article 34 as a bylaw amendment. They followed this by refusing to support Article 34 as a resolution.
Article 34 was handed a resounding defeat last night.
But it's not over.
On April 6th, Lexington residents and town meeting members will gather again at the annual town meeting, where they will vote once and for all.
The work is not over yet, and we must remain vigilant, until the final vote is cast.
Thank you to everyone who took the time to support our Bill Of Rights tonight in Lexington. Captain Parker would be proud. As are we.
