The City of Champaign is holding an emergency meeting this morning to consider Council Bill No. 2020-022 granting extraordinary powers to the mayor following a declaration of an emergency. Among them is the power to ban transferring firearms and ammunition. This proposal will not only ban sales, but will also prohibit citizens from giving firearms or ammunition to family members, friends, and others in need of self-defense during times of emergency.
Please call City Council members and ask them not to grant the mayor the power to suspend your Second Amendment rights when they’re needed most during an emergency.
