Transcripts of full meetings of the council.

Good afternoon. Good afternoon, Mr. President and members of Council, ladies and gentlemen. I'm Robert Taylor, President of Transport Workers Union Local 700, a member of the PA Council, and executive Board member of TWU, also a co-host at WPEB 88.1 FM, the Jasper Jones Show.

I'm commenting today on Ordinance 130584, regulation of individual conduct. I oppose this ordinance. Liberty should be the main goal. This ordinance brings into question invasions of privacy as to how it's going to be enforced. Also, the PA Constitution, Section 21, the right to keep and bear arms, is supreme law.

There are already too many laws and regulations for most people to keep up with. Quote, Cody Wilson, the inventor of the 3D printable gun, called his invention "The Liberator" after the World War II clan to drop single-shot pistols by that name over Occupy Europe. The idea back then was to make sure that the Germans feared anyone that they were lording over might be armed, Reason Magazine.

Well, tyrants should fear the people. We should live in rightful liberty. Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within the limits drawn around us by equal rights of others, Thomas Jefferson.

More guns, less crime.

God save Philadelphia, and thank you very much.
