Huh... That's not what they are telling the residents of Arkansas! Check out this story:
I contacted the National Park earlier this year to organize an open carry hike on the park trails. Here is a quote in the email:
"If your group would interfere with other visitors enjoyment of the park, then you would need a permitâ€¦The other problem I see is that Buffalo National River is a Wildlife Management Area (WMA) with Arkansas Game and Fish.The Game and Fish regulations prohibit the possession of a weapon on a WMA when there is no open season."
Arkansas Carry, a gun rights group in Arkansas dedicated to passing open carry in Arkansas, currently has an Attorney General opinion request filed by legislators to determine if the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission is able to make "handgun carry laws" in the state of Arkansas.
I also wrote this article and posted it on the Arkansas Tourism facebook page... it kinda made some people mad, but they sat up and took notice! Maybe it helped...
Thanks for the post; I can do something with this!
