Oak Harbor City Council debates who can carry guns to its meetings
The Associated Press
OAK HARBOR — A full audience is expected at tonight’s City Council meeting in Oak Harbor and many of the people likely will be armed.
The council is considering a repeal of its ban on guns in city parks, but the issue became more heated at a Jan. 15 hearing when Councilman Rick Almberg tried to ban guns in the council chamber and Mayor Scott Dudley apologized to a military veteran speaker who was carrying a gun with a permit.
Gun-rights groups called on supporters to turn out at Tuesday night’s meeting.
