Contractors in LA must disclose if they have ties to NRA to get city contracts

by DCG

You’ll never see demorat bureaucrats forcing businesses to disclose any ties to the baby-killers Planned Parenthood.

Mayor Eric Garcetti tweeted the following about this action: “Thoughts and prayers are not enough for L.A. Angelenos deserve to know who their City does business with, and we’ll keep fighting every day to get guns off the street and keep our kids and communities safe. Thank you CM @MitchOFarrell for your leadership.”

From WKRNThe Los Angeles City Council has passed a law requiring companies that want city contracts to disclose whether they have ties to the National Rifle Association. The measure passed Tuesday.

Councilman Mitch O’Farrell sought the ordinance in the wake of recent U.S. mass shootings. He says the NRA has been a “roadblock to gun safety reform” for decades.

NRA attorneys had warned they’d sue if the ordinance passed.

Attorney Chuck Michel calls the move “modern-day McCarthyism” that would force NRA supporters to drop their memberships for fear of losing their livelihoods.

Michel tells the Los Angeles Times he doesn’t know of any other city that has such a policy and the NRA is confident no judge will uphold it.

Maybe city “leaders” should focus on the recidivism rate of convicted criminals in their city instead of boogeyman NRA members.
