NRA targets Wood for defeat. The Roswell Beacon carried a story Sunday about the NRA’s effort to defeat Roswell Mayor Jere Wood, who is a member of the anti-gun organization Mayors Against Illegal Guns. Of course, that name belies the fact that they are against lawful gun ownership and carrying, too. Mayor Wood, on the defensive, claimed that he supports the right to bear arms. GCO Vice President John Monroe begged to differ. We do not have a link to the story (internet viewing is for subscribers only), but here is the relevant excerpt:
WOOD HAS BATTLED GUN GROUPS BEFORE
John Monroe, a Roswell lawyer and Vice President of Georgia Carry, a statewide Pro-Second Amendment organization, makes no apology for wanting the right to carry a gun just about anywhere, whether it be the mall, church, or local park.
Monroe filed a lawsuit against the City of Roswell last year in response to a city ordinance banning the carrying of firearms in Roswell parks.
