It was a coincidence that didn’t mean anything. But the fact is that both the Second Amendment and the subject of potential election-related violence came up at the tail end of the Albany City Council’s meeting Monday night.
On Feb. 12, way before everything ground to a halt because of COVID-19, the Albany City Council asked its lawyer to look into protecting townspeople from infringements of their gun rights. Whatever happened to that idea?
Not that it’s a big surprise, but the three Linn County commissioners have gone on record supporting the right of law-abiding people to keep and bear arms as the Second Amendment guarantees. Commissioners Roger Nyquist, John Lindsey and Will Tucker signed a resolution to that effect on Tuesday.
