Grady County GA Votes to Ban Guns in Parks – GCO Challenges Their Wisdom

On May 8, Grady County Commissioners voted 5-0 to ban guns in parks.

“We just don’t believe that’s necessary, so by a vote of 5 to 0 the commission voted not to allow firearms, at our recreation facility,” said commission chairman T. D. David.

This decision comes after HB60 was signed into law but before the effective date.  The story can be found here.

Upon hearing this news, GCO Founding Board Member, Ed Stone notified the county in writing that this is unacceptable.  The demand letter can be found here.

WALB’s Troy Washington said her station is airing an interview with Ed Stone tonight May 12, at 6:00 PM but other stations have requested the material from the story as well.
The conclusion to the story appears to be that the county is now backtracking on its words.  They were just “talking” and they want to be in compliance with state law.  The vote was just what they wish they could do . . .
