Clearly, in order to know what is happening at the Lake, it is necessary to sit through the entire Lake Monticello board meetings in order to get to the proposed policy changes. Whoops, I left early and as a result this proposal has just come to my attention
At the February meeting, the Safety & Security Committee presented changes to the policy manual, LMOA Weapons/Firearms Policy, Chapter 14, Section 14.02 lll (A).
The S & S Committee cites the Constitution and Second Amendment as the basis for its proposed policy changes. I, too, am a vigorous supporter of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, including the Second Amendment, which is very short. “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” What is open for debate is whether this includes citizens able to carry licensed weapons on the streets of Lake Monticello.
