City of Ferndale (COF) staff today posted on the COF website and on social media about a City Council’s resolution passed at the recent City Council meeting declaring Saturday, June 2, 2018 to be Wear Orange for Gun Safety Day. According to the resolution, “We encourage all citizens to support local efforts to prevent the tragic effects of misusing a firearm, and to honor and value human lives.”
In an email received from City staff it was noted,
Guns can be a contentious issue but the City understands that there are opportunities for residents of all viewpoints to work together to help keep people safe. Whether it is working to reduce gun violence by tackling the root causes, ensuring the safe storage and ownership of firearms or working with loved ones in times of need to reduce suicide, there is plenty of common ground.
The City has created an information page on the COF website with related information and resources.
