Under the recently passed House Bill 650
loaded, hidden guns are now allowed in more public places. However, cities and counties have the right to prohibit guns in recreational facilities.
The Winston-Salem City Council is considering an ordinance that will keep guns out of city recreational facilities, including greenways, athletic fields, and playgrounds.
Sign the petition below to show your support for this ordinance. Send the message "there’s no room for a gun on a playground."
We will be delivering your signatures to the Winston-Salem City Council before the council vote on November 21st. Make sure your voice is heard before this critical vote -- sign today.
I urge you to keep loaded, hidden guns out of Winston-Salem's recreational facilities.
Just like most of the other residents of Winston-Salem, I'll feel less safe if loaded guns are allowed in athletic fields and playgrounds.
Please pass the ordinance prohibiting guns from our city's recreational areas.
