Pa. police chief's profanity-laced gun rights videos draw controversy

(Continued)

GILBERTON, Pa. —

Kessler, who is also on the North Schuylkill school board, has successfully lobbied for gun right protections in his hometown. After the Sandy Hook shooting last year led to renewed pushes for gun control, Kessler urged the borough council to adopt a resolution nullifying any federal or state laws that restricted firearm usage, "past, present or future," Salon reports.

The unedited version of Kessler's apology video is available on YouTube. (WARNING: Graphic language.)

The Iowegian wants readers to think about the solicitation ordinance that will prevent groups or individuals from entering a roadway to solicit money. The Centerville City Council in June by a 5-0 vote passed the first reading of just such an ordinance. Public pressure and during a subsequent special meeting, the council voted 3-2 to table the ordinance. A second special meeting to discuss the solicitation ordinance is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 7 at City Hall. So, the question of the week is, "Do you or do you not support the ordinance to prevent solicitation of funds in city streets?"

A. I support the ordinance
B. I do not support the ordinance
