VERONA, Miss. (WTVA) - No decision was made this evening in Verona on whether or not to have a city gun ordinance.

A public hearing was held this evening at the Verona City Hall.

Citizens voiced their opinions on the recent gun violence in the city and if a gun ordinance is needed. Currently the city doesn't have a gun ordinance.

City leaders could vote on the ordinance next Tuesday.

UPDATE:

VERONA,Miss(WTVA)--Tupelol Attorney Jim Waide says that a proposed gun ordinance in the Ctiy of Verona would probably stand up in court even if challeneged by gun tenthusiasts.

Waide says the ordinance would  stand up against a challenged because it adrresses gun restrictions in certain places.

He also believes city leaders will likely approve the ordinance in light of recent events and for political reasons.
