Upcoming projects benefit town, county

Two areas of governance where the town and county intersect were the primary topics of discussion by Tunica officials Tuesday.
Tunica County is poised to deed two fire trucks to the town, Mayor Chuck Cariker told aldermen, to assist in the purchase of a replacement truck for a rescue vehicle that is 16 years old and nearing the end of its useful life.
Cariker said that the state is pushing Tunica officials to use fire rebate funds that have been accumulating for a number of years and now total over $200,000. The funds must be used solely for purchasing new fire vehicles, or the state could reclaim the money, he said.

Sheriff weighs in on gun control

In mid January, President Barack Obama issued over 20 executive orders related to gun control on the federal level. On Thursday, Jan. 24, Sheriff K.C. Hamp, the chief law enforcement officer for Tunica County, discussed the new protocol and its implications on citizens in this community.
“I support the U.S. Constitution and the Second Amendment giving citizens the right to bear arms,” Hamp said. “I echo the ban of law enforcement around the nation of keeping high power assault weapons out of the hands of gangs, terrorists and the mentally challenged.”
Hamp said an assault weapon, also commonly known as a machine gun, belongs in the hands of law enforcement officers and the military. Weapons that have the capacity to fire many rounds and “hurt a lot of people” should not fall into the hands of just anyone, he said.
