Prohibiting Open Carry Guns in Wildwood Violates Rights, Claims Residents
TAKE POLL: Some Wildwood residents believe not allowing open carry guns in the municipality is a violation of their Second Amendment rights. They said open carry is allowed in 95 percent of Missouri, and ask why not in Wildwood.
Wildwood residents appealed to Wildwood city council members to consider changing the city's prohibition of open carry guns at the city's most recent council meeting on Feb. 27.
"Wildwood's ordinance that prohibits open carry goes well beyond simply having a hand gun on your hip in a holster," said Marc Perez, a Wildwood resident who said he is working with Jefferson City legislators to remove what he considers an infringement of Second Amendment rights.
