The gun show happened, thankfully without incident. But at what cost? I spent a lot time in that block on Saturday, March 2.
I watched protesters, press conferences, attendees and police. I watched people walking about with guns strapped to their backs. I saw loads of ammunition being carted out of the auditorium. I stood in front of my college and watched people scream and shout that their rights were being dismantled.
And I paid for it. Every one of the citizens in Glendale paid for that gun show in taxes and reputation. I know we are better than a gun show. I know we are proud of our city and what we have to offer.
I thank the city council for committing to make Glendale better by not allowing a gun show on public property.
