Threats tighten Ward 6 roast rules

TUCSON - No guns. No backpacks. No open microphones.

Those are some of the new rules that are being imposed at a Ward 6 roast event scheduled for Monday night at The Loft.

What was intended to be a civil exchange between politician and constituent changed once a group threatened to disrupt the event, The Arizona Daily Star reported.

The change in tone came about when Kozachik announced he'd like to hear what Tucson's thoughts were on how the city regulates guns.

The group was not satisfied with the political affiliation of elected officials attending, objecting to only two Republicans speaking.

Kozachik was compared to Hitler and was accused of trying to disarm Tucsonans, the Star reported.

In addition to the rules, there will be security.
