Measure allowing guns in city parks proposed

February 2, 2010

City-County Councilor Ed Coleman introduced a measure on Monday to allow legally registered guns in Indianapolis parks. The Libertarian and member of the National Rifle Association pointed out that guns are allowed in every Indiana state park, and that, beginning Feb, 22, firearms also will be allowed in some national parks. The Council’s Parks and Recreation Committee is expected to consider the issue as early as Feb. 25.
