In tunnel hill Ga i stumbled across a park that has a no firearms sign. It is my understanding that this is actually illegal for the city to post this Am i missing something as to how they still have this up ?
It is unlawful for a local government to have an ordnance against lawful carry in parks. It is not unlawful for them to have an unenforced no-guns sign. From what I have found Tunnel Hill does not have an ordinance prohibiting carry. They might have at one time or whoever is in charge of the signs just does not like guns. If you are a frequent visitor or resident of the area you may want to contact them to have them take down or coverup the useless sign(s).
In Accordance with Georgia Code 16-11-173, Tunnel Hill can not have an Ordinance that is more Restrictive than State Law.
Georgia Law 16-11-126(g), Authorizes Firearms in State Parks under the Authority of The Department, and under Georgia Law, as Citied above, Cities and Counties have to Allow Firearms in Local Parks, as well.
I went in on Monday and talked to the City administrator. He told me he knew the law and that he didnt know the sign was there. I drove by today and all the signs were down. That was the easiest 2nd amendment thing that i have ever encountered
