Nyssa council takes stand affirming right to bear arms


NYSSA - The Nyssa City Council recently approved a resolution affirming the city’s support for the Second Amendment, and opposing any infringement by state and federal lawmakers upon gun rights.

The resolution came after residents brought up the topic to the City Council, prompting the resolution on Tuesday, Feb. 11.

The resolution cites both the Constitution of the United States of America, and the Oregon Constitution as justification for the right to bear arms, stating, “the Nyssa City Council feels that public recognition of the Constitution of the United States of America and Oregon are the documents that protect and preserve our democracy and liberty.” 

The resolution said the city “vigorously opposes any state or federal law that unfairly and unconstitutionally restricts these rights.”
