COLUMBIA—People for a Taser-Free Columbia intends to present a proposed ordinance that would eliminate Tasers as an enforcement tool in Columbia during a Thursday event.
A news conference will be at 10 a.m. Thursday at the old Labor Temple, 611 N. Garth Ave.
"We have five speakers speaking on why they think (Columbia) would be better taser-free," said organizer Mary Hussmann.
The group is also holding a fundraiser art show from 5 to 7 p.m. on April 9 at Cafe Berlin. A $5 admission fee covers snacks and beverages.
