We all need to show up at the WVC city council meeting tomorrow evening and back up our boy TJ!!! He is in the process of preparing a statement (which he is humble enough to allow to help out on) calling for the mayor and city council to do something about the WVCPD habitual harrassment of law-abiding citizens.

Be there early, dress nice, sit on the front row with us!

Can we CC/OC to the meeting?
As far as I know it isn't in the secure area of the building, but I'll call and check. If not, there shouldn't be any problems with either CC/OC. The reason to OC would be to show our support without saying anything.

Edit: I just got off the phone with the city recorder, and she said the city council chambers are not in any secure part of the building.

I can't help but imagine the conversation...

jaredbelch: I was just wondering if where you have the city council meetings is in a secure part of the building?

city recorder: What do you mean?

jaredbelch: Do they have a metal detector or check for weapons and stuff?

city recorder: No. Why??

jaredbelch: Oh, me and a bunch of my buddies from a gun forum want to make a public statement, so we're all bringing our guns. OK. Bye.

city recorder: ??????????

I'm just teasin' ya, but I sure hope ya'll aren't met by the SWAT team when you show up. :D

Actually you aren't too far off...

Me: Hi my name is Jared how are you today?
recorder: (no response)
Me: Um, I have a question... Are the city council chambers located in a secure area?
recorder: (no response but I can tell she is still on the line)
Me: Will I have to go through a metal detector to get in?
recorder: No (concerned voice) Why do you ask?
Me: I didn't want to be surprised when I show up and have to turn around and put my gun back in the car, since you can't carry in secure areas...
recorder: Oh
Me: Thanks, Bye.

I don't know if I was just at the wrong West Valley City Council meeting, but people talked about grafitti and loud car stereos, but nobody said a word about open carry. What happened?

It got canceled. Sorry! It wasn't on the agenda from my understanding. It was suppose to be during the half-hour comment period near the beginning. Sorry, caldweller.
