The Smith County Commission has changed their original meeting date, and will now consider Resolution No. 07-2009-06 on Monday, August 24. Resolution 07-2009-06 which would, if passed, prohibit law-abiding permit holders from carrying a firearm for self-defense in county parks.

This meeting is open to the public, so we encourage you to attend in support of our Second Amendment rights. This is not a hearing, so those in attendance will be unable to speak directly to the commission, but may be afforded the opportunity to talk to members before the start of the meeting. Because attendees will be unable to address the County Commission, it is important that you get your opinion through to your local officials by contacting them immediately, so county commissioners will be able to best represent you.
