FICG On Behalf of FOAC Files Letter In Response To Jenks Township’s Proposed Illegal Firearm Ordinance

Today, it was reported by ExploreClarion.com that Jenks Township was considering enacting an ordinance prohibiting the discharge of firearms in the township.

As a result, Firearms Industry Consulting Group® (FICG®), a division of Civil Rights Defense Firm, P.C., on behalf of its client, Firearm Owners Against Crime (FOAC), filed a letter in opposition to the proposal; wherein, Chief Counsel Joshua Prince explains the constitutional and statutory protections and case law precluding such regulation. In the event Jenks Township moves forward with the proposal, FOAC is prepared to file a legal challenge against the Township and request the District Attorney to file criminal charges for violations of Section 6120.

  2. Thank you, to whoever is taking a step to prohibiting the twp from trying to overrule state law because it is doubtful such action would stop with one ordinance. In the event a resident ever has their life threatened inside their home and shoots the intruder in self-defense, hopefully now the victim will not be jailed or fined by Jenks Twp for protecting themselves and/or their family. We do not have a gun problem, we have a people problem.
