"We don't want them here," the Mayor said. "Should you choose to bring a firearm with you on vacation, you'll have to leave it with Woody Shackles and the Mooseville Police Department for the length of your stay."
When asked about the backlash from Moosevillians who believe in the right to bear arms, the Mayor stood firm on her decision to ban guns.
"You want to bear arms or arm bears, I don't care, but you're going to have do it someplace else," the Mayor said.
Several members of the community have expressed concern about the radical legislation.
"I've got two shotguns I use for hunting," said Eli Survivor. "They also make me feel a bit safer having them in the house. I need to protect my family."
The Mayor assures residents that the measures, though seemingly extreme, have been taken to ensure public safety.
"I won't overlook public safety as a whole for the few who think they need shotguns to hunt in Mooseville Park," the Mayor explained.
As far as protection goes the Mayor says banning firearms won't eliminate crime, but it will help detour senseless acts of violence.
"Violence can still happen in Mooseville," the Mayor said. "Any idiot can pull a trigger, but if you want to kill someone in Mooseville, you've got to do it old school with a knife, or a shank, a bow and arrow, blunt object, or your bare hands. I'm giving our residents a fighting chance with this legislation."
Residents who own firearms are asked to stop by the Mooseville Police Department to check in their weapons.
Those who refuse to relinquish their firearms will be asked to leave city limits.
"I've crunched the numbers, and I'm prepared to take a hit on our economy," the Mayor said. "But I can't sleep at night knowing that a standard Glock holds 17 rounds of ammunition in one magazine. It would only take seven Glocks, with three rounds to spare, to wipe out Mooseville's entire population, and those are numbers I'm not willing to gamble on."
