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.
