Signs banning guns come down in Raleigh parks

Posted: Updated:

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Officials in Raleigh are removing park signs that ban concealed weapons, but a gun rights group says the effort doesn't go far enough.

The News & Observer of Raleigh reports (http://bit.ly/18zFDKM) Grass Roots North Carolina is still lobbying the city to update its signs to reflect the state law allowing concealed guns in parks.

On Monday, Raleigh parks and recreation director Diane Sauer said the incorrect signs will be removed by Wednesday. But she added that the city won't change signs that include multiple park rules and tell visitors they cannot "possess firearms or other weapons." Those signs don't distinguish between concealed or openly carried guns.

Grass Roots President Paul Valone says his members are preparing to send the mayor rolls of duct tape to cover up the controversial text.
