Yesterday, February 3, the Clarksville City Council voted 9-3 to pass Resolution 37-2010-11, a repeal of the 2009 ban on firearms in locally owned or operated parks.
Effective immediately, the repeal, offered by Councilman Wallace Redd (Ward 4) and supported by Councilman Nick Steward (Ward 1), enables residents and visitors with a handgun carry permit to legally carry a firearm for self-defense in several Clarksville’s parks, with the following exceptions: 1. Heritage Park 2. Liberty Park 3. All city owned or operated swimming pools, recreation, civic and community buildings, including the Swan Lake Sports Complex 4. All city operated parks or sports fields that are leased by the City and owned by the Montgomery County School System
