    Specifically, in what PUBLICLY OWNED zoos in your state can one carry?

    I'm currently engaged in a lawsuit against the St. Louis Zoo: http://forum.opencarry.org/forums/sh...al-help-needed

    It would be helpful for me to provide a specific list to my attorney ASAP - of publicly-owned zoos where carry is legal.

    Would knowledgeable people please list the publicly-owned zoos where carry is legal in your state, and if possible, provide a link to the Zoo's website?

    THANK YOU.

    I have combed through the prior, non-specific thread, and will pick up what I can from there, but PLEASE LIST zoos here that may not have been listed there.

    Thank you.

    I'm told the Denver Zoo allows it, but they won't publish their policy very visibly. I'm of the understanding that they will fax it to somebody upon request. But that information is a few years old. I can say that I've found nothing on their site about firearms at all, and I don't recall any signs from my last visit (about two years ago).

    The above is the link to a zoo in the State of Utah, it is a part of the Salt Lake County Parks system and is supported in part by the ZAP tax (for Zoo, Arts, and Parks). As a subunit of the Government they are prohibited by state law from having or enforcing ANY rule, law, regulation, or policy inhibiting the carry, possession, or ownership of firearms.

    Several years ago I have personally OPEN CARRIED without objection or harassment from any zoo employee or patron!

    Is the Denver Zoo public, and what are the laws in CO regarding CC or OC in public buildings?

    Thank you, and thanks to JoeSparky also.

    BB62, the Denver zoo is located in the county and city of Denver proper which is, as discussed on this forum till the pigs came home and were made into bacon, a NO OC county & city.

    decided judicially in 2003: just one part presented.
    DRMC §39-9 prohibiting firearms in parks:A. Remains valid and enforceable by the City in regard to all firearms other than concealed handguns carried with a permit, and is not preempted by C.R.S. §29-11.7-103 (2003);

    As you may, or may not know, the reason I've asked for help on threads such as these is that I need it. Many hands make light work.

    Yes, thank you, it works for me. It would have worked even better without the "whew...what a pain to find current information" comment.

    If you're of a mind to help further, I could really use specific information such as all the publicly-owned zoos in FL, and specifically elsewhere (iow, other specific zoos in other states) where state preemption means that one can carry in government owned buildings.

    Thank you.

    Specifically, in what PUBLICLY OWNED zoos in your state can one carry?
    For Georgia, any and all Publicly Owned zoos per OCGA 16-11-173 which gives the state preemption and 16-11-127 which lists the unauthorized locations.

    Thank you, but again, I simply can't do all the research required in the allotted time - which is why I've asked those with such knowledge to specifically identify publicly owned zoos where carry is legal.
