Scottsboro may issue new firearm ordinance

SCOTTSBORO, AL (WBRC) - City councilors in Scottsboro want to make it illegal for people to fire guns in populated areas.
At least one of the city councilors has children and said they are considering the ordinance to make it safer for kids in the area.

Councilor Joe Manning says his children had to come inside once after a neighbor began shooting at some squirrels.

Police say they have had similar complaints, but can do nothing because there is no law against it.
