South Bend Pols break state law to curtail gun rights
Local politicians in South Bend, Ind., are circumventing state law to limit firearm and ammunition sales.
Without a complaint of a crime being committed, the nine-member South Bend City Council arm twisted a local Walmart store to follow firearm sale regulations declared in an agreement made between the two entities on June 13, 2011. Yet effective July 1, 2011 state law says “a political subdivision may not regulate firearms, ammunition, and firearm accessories”.
According to local news reports the agreement says Walmart must limit sales of firearms to rifles and shotguns used only for hunting or target practice. No “tactical guns” or “assault weapons” with its related ammunition are to be sold and all guns and ammunition, other than shotgun shells, should be kept in locked display cases.
