GeorgiaCarry.org President Ed Stone said he is pleased to see Kennesaw take steps to change its ordinance, but said the organization would pursue legal action if the city failed to act.
"We will of course follow up to see if they follow through with the attorney's recommendation," he said. "We will be present at City Council meetings."
GeorgiaCarry.org is presently suing Coweta County over a similar ordinance. The suit is pending appeal in the Georgia Court of Appeals.
Stone said the organization has contacted several other Georgia cities and counties about changes to similar firearms ordinances. He said Gwinnett, Forsyth, and Lee counties have each repealed their ordinances.
"We're not ashamed of anything we're doing," he said. "We think it's important for people to protect themselves while visiting state and local parks. Georgia firearms license holders are notoriously safe."
Stone said GeorgiaCarry.org pursues changing city and county ordinances as organization members bring issues to their attention.
"Every one we pursue is for the benefit of a member who was affected by this," he said.
