SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — The Sacramento City Council voted to remove a decades-old city ordinance that requires people to stand at attention during the national anthem Tuesday.

The decision comes after an attorney filed a lawsuit against the city demanding for it to be removed.

”The city basically said that it is required to stand at attention during the national anthem. This is a 1928 ordinance,” Mayor Darrell Steinberg said.

It’s one of several old laws that remain on the city books. Others include a ban on selling violent comic books to kids and requiring licenses for astrologers.

    I’ve suddenly had that feeling of remembering when I landed at Travis AFB from Viet Nam and all these people calling me a baby killer and other names, there was no patriotism then either. I fear for our country. .
