    I use to loveriding outto Tannehill State Park, but stopped going once I figured out they were "no carry."

    I have read the "OC/CC now legal at National Parks thread" before, but I just re-read it and only now figured out that halfway down the thread you guys were talking about STATE PARKS being legal.

    Confirmed this via Alabama State Parks website.

    WOW. Awesome.

    Just thought it deserved it's own thread. OC Tannehill Trade Days, anyone?Or maybe they'll have another Civil War Battle re-enactment soon. YES.

    Huh? AFAIK state parks still have a prohibition on carrying firearms.

    Does ANYONE know when/how this happened?

    Did I somehow use brainpower/sheer will to change this magically?

    Awesomeness.

    Look out Public Demonstration Law. You're next.

    I don't know when it changed. I know on handgunlaw.us it was changed from illegal to legal on the 15th of this month.

    Dude, if you can get this done thru sheer will power I have a long list of things I need done...can you help out? haha

    BTW - I am trying to get together a Starbucks OC crew down here in the tri-County area. We can't let you B-ham boys have all the fun!!

    I think we're stuck with that one. The government doesn't want a bunch of people demonstrating against something it did while they are strapped-on. I think they are afraid of those of us who know and exercise our rights.

    From the "Alabama Administrative Monthly"

    C. CONSERVATION AND NATURAL RESOURCES, DEPARTMENT OF

    Amended Rule:

    220X5.08 Prohibited Devices



    Date Filed: January 5, 2010

    Public Notice appeared in Volume XXVIII, Issue No. 1 AAM, Dated October

    30, 2009.



    The proposed changed was mentioned briefly by a member of the Conservation Advisory Board in one of their meetings early last year, but it was never discussed openly at any length. I figure they left it to the commissioner to propose the rulehimself in orderto bypass public discussion in their meetings that would have drawn more attention.

    One good example of why we should check the "Administrative Monthly" from time to time. That's where the agencybureaucratspost notices that their proposed rules and rule changes are open for public comment before they go into effect.

    OC'ed Tannehill State Parks Trade Days today for about 2 hours with at least 1000 people there.

    Not one word. Nor a peep. I'm starting to think it's the aviators. Haha.

    Only got a few looks.



    State park waters = tested.

    Awesome...I'll have to do it at Gulf State Park. I know a couple of the gals in the front office. Hopefully I won't run into any trouble.

    For what it is worth Tannehill State park is covered under a different section of the administrative code ( 885-1-3)than the rest of the state park system and it has not been changed. So is Red Mountain Greenway (797-X-4) and BEAR CREEK (160-X-8-.01)



    These areas are still questionable but I think the powers that be are beginning to realize that these regulations are not consistent with the Alabama constitution.
