Gun rights groups threatens Raleigh with lawsuit

Saturday, October 26th, 2013

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) – A gun rights group is threatening to sue the city of Raleigh for not updating signs in city parks telling visitors that firearms aren’t allowed.

The News & Observer of Raleigh reports (http://bit.ly/Hkaju1) Grass Roots North Carolina sent a letter to the Raleigh City Council this week, requesting an update. Legislation passed in 2011 allows concealed-carry permit holders to bring guns to playgrounds, greenways and college campuses.

In an email, Raleigh parks director Diane Sauer told the group it would be too expensive to replace all signs in the city’s 100-plus parks, especially since the rules could change again.

City Attorney Tom McCormick said he’s not familiar with the sign complaint, but he says the city won’t enforce any gun rules that were struck down by the state legislature.
