PROSPER, Texas – On May 14, the town council voted unanimously in favor of a resolution to “recognize and affirm the constitutional right to keep and bear arms,” joining other Texas communities standing up for the Second Amendment.
The council took up the measure after Ann Lieber and another member of the Prosper Tea Party shared a similar resolution passed by the Rockwall city council with Mayor Ray Smith.
“We did have a lot of residents that were very interested in having the council support this amendment,” he said. “The council obviously supports the Constitution, but it was important to the community that we support this amendment.”
Resolution 13-29 grew out of a discussion item at an April meeting. When several citizens showed up to speak favorably, it became a department item. Now Mayor Smith is working with town manager Harlan Jefferson to spread the word to all Texas lawmakers.
“Let’s get it out to everybody since we are Americans and we are Texans,” he said.Details
