City Council Candidates Slow to Respond to Glendale Gun Show Survey

Paula Devine remains the only candidate for Glendale City Council to respond to a Coalition for a Better Glendale survey aimed at gauging support for a 2013 council move that effectively spelled the end of the Glendale Gun Show at the city-owned Glendale Civic Auditorium.

As of Thursday, the Coalition was still awaiting formal responses from Rick Barnes, Vartan Gharpetian, Chahe Keuroghelian and Mike Mohill.

In an interview with the News-Press, Keuroghelian said his survey was in the mail.

Keuroghelian told the paper he supports the ordinance that bars gun and ammo sales on city property. He expressed a similar position to the Coalition last year during his 2013 council run.

In her survey, Devine likewise expressed support for the gun show-related ordinance.

Gharpetian told the News-Press “he would not oppose the gun-show ban in the future.” Mohill, per the newspaper, was too busy to address the issue.

Barnes, who came out against the gun show-related moves during his 2013 council candidacy, said last weekend’s mass shooting at the University of California, Santa Barbara, had given him pause, and that he needed to think further about the issue, the News-Press reported.

The Coalition for a Better Glendale is a grassroots group of neighbors, homeowners, voters, parents and more who helped lead the fight to end the city’s formal affiliation with the gun show.
