Montgomery Co. OKs Guns in Parks

Clarksville, TN – After the first of September, people will legally be allowed to carry guns with valid permits in Montgomery County parks. The Clarksville Leaf-Chronicle reports that inaction by the county's Conservation Board last night, effectively stopped a resolution to continue the ban on guns in parks. Montgomery County voted in June to keep guns out of their four parks in the wake of Tennessee's newly passed state law. Other dangerous weapons like crossbows, knives, and boomerangs are still on the ban list.
