Farragut Town Hall workshop

I was unable to attend because of work, but it was reported by a friend that only one person spoke in favor of continuing the ban.

Alderman Bob Markli made a good point as reported in the Knoxville News-Sentinel concerning surveys done by the Parks and Recreation Department, "Surveys are nice but our rights are not subject to a popularity contest."

Alderman Jeff Elliott wants to continue the ban for "safety reasons." Some people just don't get it. They would rather keep you unarmed and helpless. Some of them prefer that . . . and maintain the philosophy, "if I just look straight ahead and whistle a happy tune, nothing will happen to me."
