    Billings parks?

    I would prefer to have a firearm when taking my family to a park here in billings. I'm not sure where to find out if it is prohibited in Billings though. Help?

    Don't think any restriction exists.

    The only local municipal ordinance I see for billings is:

    Sec. 18-204. Prohibiting weapons, firearms and explosives at city council proceedings.

    (d) Signing. Suitable signs giving notice that weapons, firearms and destructive devices are prohibited at city council proceedings will be posted in appropriate areas.
    (e) Penalties. A person convicted of carrying or possessing weapons, firearms or destructive devices at city council proceedings shall be fined not to exceed five hundred dollars ($500.00) or by imprisonment not to exceed six (6) months or both.

    Parks and public buildings where city council proceedings are not occurring should be good, carry on.
