Common Sense Prevails (redux)

At its February voting session, the Athens-Clarke County Commission is slated to adopt an amendment to the Unified Government’s prohibition on the possession of otherwise legal firearms in the county’s parks. The section of the ordinance, which is 1-10-4(a), reading “possession of firearms” (subparagraph 3) will be deleted and reserved, while one prohibiting the “discharge of firearms” (subparagraph 17) will be added.

My thanks to them for opting not to defend the local ordinance in the courts, which would have been a futile gesture to be sure.
Those interested can see the background material on the agenda item here.
