Conway revamps its gun ordinance in city parks
News

CONWAY, Ark. (KTHV) - Gun control is once again becoming a hot-button topic in the news lately. One town is taking the discussion a step further.

Parks are places for play and family time, but a small change in Conway's gun ordinance has some people worried it will become a dangerous place.

An afternoon in Laural Park is a perfect way for Beverly McChristian to spend a summer day in Conway with her kids, but says now she's concerned about what else might be in the park.

"It's a park and the kids are here and I think guns maybe shouldn't be in the park with the kids. I don't see a reason for it really."

A recent vote by the Conway City Council is causing a bit of confusion regarding carrying concealed weapons in city parks.  Conway Alderman Mark Vaught explains the vote amends a 1971 ordinance.

"We realized our ordinance was banning all firearms in the parks.  State law already forbids any firearm from being carried into city parks except for concealed carry owners."

So the council decided on the amendment, so it doesn't conflict with state law.

Still, McChristian says it doesn't bring her much comfort as her children play in the park.

"I think there's certain places where their just not necessary and it just adds a little element of danger that maybe shouldn't be around the kids."
