City should ban alcohol as well

I find it rather hypocritical that the city is considering banning the Glendale Gun Show and at the same time expanding the use of alcohol on public property (“Councilman aiming for ban of city's gun show,” Dec. 20).

If one of these persons who legally consumes alcohol at a city facility drives off and crashes into a school bus, killing several children, who would be morally responsible?

I personally have no use for alcohol and having worked with a fellow Glendale city employee who killed two mothers and two daughters in Glendale as a result of drunk driving, this only strengthens my position against alcohol. So, if the City Council votes to ban the gun show I hope that it is paired with banning all alcohol on city property including the Civic Auditorium. If it just saves one life, it's worth it.
