Armed audience expected at Oak Harbor council meeting

OAK HARBOR — A full audience is expected at Tuesday night’s city council meeting in Oak Harbor and many of the people will likely be armed.

The council is considering a repeal of its ban on guns in city parks, but the issue became more heated at a Jan. 15 hearing when councilman Rick Almberg tried to ban guns in the council chamber and Mayor Scott Dudley apologized to a military veteran speaker who was carrying a gun with a permit.

KING reports the episode gained national attention when video was posted on YouTube.

Gun rights groups called on supporters to turn out at Tuesday night’s meeting.
