COLUMBIA — People For a Taser-Free Columbia plan to present City Clerk Sheela Amin with a 4,000 signature petition to ban Tasers, according to a news release from the organization.

The group will meet at 11 a.m. June 2 outside of City Hall to talk about their reasons for the petition before delivering it. The Taser free ordinance would stop any use of conducted electrical devices, or CEDs, such as Tasers.

If the Columbia City Council rejects this ordinance, voters will decide on CEDs on Nov. 2.
