Council chambers were standing room only as five citizens took turns at the podium for and against the resolution. The city manager said this resolution will affirm the second amendment rights of citizens in the city.

“We just thought that it was probably something that we needed to take a look at, but also doing it as we’re permitted to under the code of Virginia and as a Dillon rule locality," said City Manager Keith Barker.
