However, in a separate ordinance, Ashwaubenon forbids people from bringing firearms into parks.
Public Safety Chief Eric Dunning said he hasn't been directed to change that. He referenced an opinion from the League of Wisconsin Municipalities arguing such rules are permissible because they're not more stringent than the state statutes forbidding firearms in state parks
Well it seems ignorance is bliss! ^
This has been argued again and again in south milwaukee, greenbay, and correct me if I'm wrong Greenfield. First off firearms are NOT forbidden in state parks. Secondly it is obviously more stringent due to the range the statute covers and the enforcibilaty by the state. Leave it to a ""Public Safety Chief"" to be so ignorant.
Hopefully we got some activists near Ashwaubenon that can go and challenge this! Maybe I'll have to give them a call too.
