|Via an anonymous message entitled "Mayor Ballard's Position on Gun Rights - FYI" I received a link to the following blog:|
Ogden on Politics
This blog entry says in part:
|I would strongly advise people to not fall for the appearance of support this Mayor shows for gun rights. They are empty words, not backed up by actions.|
Mr. Ogden goes on to address some specific concerns including Ballard's alleged admiration for New York City style gun registration, his defense of Indianapolis's very strict gun return requirements which targets legal gun owners and his opposition to the Second Amendment being understood to apply at state and local levels.
For those of you who haven't been following the story, I have exchanged an email or two with Ballard's administration regarding his appointment of Frank Straub to Public Safety Director. Mr. Ogden's post on the subject further details Ballard's duplicity on the subject.
Thanks for the link.
