Albuquerque, NM – The City of Albuquerque is pushing a new initiative to keep young people safe from guns.
KRQE reports Mayor Tim Keller signed an administrative instruction banning firearms from all of the city’s community centers, multi-gen centers, and senior centers.
He cited 27 gun offenses reported at these centers in a four-year period and a tragic May 2013 shooting that killed an 8-year-old girl at the Alamosa Community Center.
In a press release the city announced it will have more information at a press conference on how it plans to address domestic terrorism in the mayor’s so-called “Project Guardian” initiative.
Doubtless pressure from pro gun groups will be on him and his administration: that is why One Pulse for America will show him support.

I want to thank you for signing the administrative instruction banning firearms from all of the city’s community centers, which serve over 200,000 children. I know that this is going to save lives.
I understand that 27 gun offenses were reported at these centers in a four-year period and there was a May 2013 shooting that killed an 8-year-old girl at the Alamosa Community Center.
Your “Project Guardian” initiative sounds very promising, and it’s good to see a city take positive action on the country’s gun injury and death epidemic.
