    Ravens Run in Fayette Co.

    In the list of rules on the web site for Ravens Run it list firearms as being prohibited. I know there is a rule (not law, in my opinion) about state nature sanctuaries. Ravens Run is a Fayette Co. park though, so I don't think it would apply. I don't see how they can prohibit firearms in a public park. I see no difference in Ravens Run and any other park except for the nature sactuary thing. Whats your opinion ?

    Not really sure, as I haven't been there in person, but from the site it looks like this is a Nature area exclusive with 2 picnic sites. My guess is that this would be KAR only.

    Ravens Run is not listed on the KSNP site, so the unconstitutional KAR is irrelevant to Ravens Run. Mellio, do you want to take this up with LFUCG or do you want me to?

    Lang, I think you would be better at talking with people than I would. Feel free to take this up with LFUCG if you want. I look forward to hearing their reply.

    Contacted the park supervisor and he forwarded my concern to Jerry Hancock the director of LFUCG Parks & Rec dept. We'll see where we'll go from there.


    Liberty4Ever--is that who you talked to in regards to Jacobson Park?

    I got a response from the parks director:

    "Thanks for your message. Your inquiry prompted us to review our
    website, signage and training of staff and we are in the process of
    getting all of our information updated to reflect the correct and
    current information. The website has already been changed. Our Natural
    Areas staff has been directed to review signage on site to make sure it
    is correct.

    Thanks for pointing this out to us. I appreciate it."
