    I recieved an email from my district commissioner today:

    Re: Jackson County Parks and Recreation Ordinance

    Action on this matter:

    County counsel has advised on the ordinance language, and has noted that legally carried arms cannot be prohibited. A public hearing will be held at tonight's meeting concerning updated language, which language will delete the prohibition on legally carried arms.

    Your presence welcomed at the public hearing, and your comments welcomed.

    Earl J Poleski

    This is what is changing: (Bold is addition, red is removed)
    Section 5: Weapons

    No person shall, at any time, bring into or upon the property of the Commission, or have in his possession, whether concealed or otherwise, any weapon including, but not limited to, a firearm, revolver, pistol, shotgun, rifle, air rifle, air gun, water gun, bow and arrow, slingshot, cross bow, spear or spear gun, switchblade, knife, dirk, dagger, stiletto, sword, blackjack, bully billy club, bludgeon, whip, ax, or any weapon capable of discharging a projectile, either by air, spirit, gas or explosive, any explosive substance of any other force, or any other dangerous weapon; provided that this Section shall not apply to any duly sworn peace officer while carrying out his duties, nor or to any person properly hunting or target practicing in areas designated by the Director for such activities. This Section does not prohibit the lawful possession and transportation of firearms as defined by State Law.

    Looks like it was approved. I received another email:

    Matter was approved tonight as part of the consent agenda. There was no comment during the public hearing.
