Friday, February 4, 2011

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 

Thank you to all NRA members who contacted the Clarksville City Council and voiced their support.  This is a step in the right direction.
