20. Ordinance amending City Code Section 3-9-I-1 (Unlawful Use of Weapons) to
amend and clarify the City’s open carry of guns laws.
Description: The ordinance would amend City Code Section 3-9-I-1 to clarify the
City’s firearm carry laws. It allows for the open carry of firearms on public property so
long as the firearm is carried in a holster with the safety on and remains in the
immediate control of the person carrying at all times. It also prohibits concealed and
open carrying of weapons at City-sponsored events where alcohol and/or cereal malt
beverages are served or consumed. Finally, it creates a distinct misdemeanor offense
when an individual carries a loaded firearm during the commission of a list of other
enumerated municipal misdemeanor offenses. None of the provisions in the Section
which apply to concealed carry are applicable to any person who is licensed to carry
concealed under the Personal and Family Protection Act.
