Keep Guns off Winston-Salem Playgrounds

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.

As Mayor Joines stated, “We’re trying to do the best we can to protect the kids. In my opinion there’s no room for a gun on a playground.”

Sign a petition asking the Winston-Salem City Council to pass the ordinance keeping guns out of city recreational facilities including greenways, athletic fields and playgrounds.

    If you worked as hard to keep criminals out of city recreational facilities as you do law abiding citizens I could support you efforts. However, I will never understand why anyone would try so hard to prevent a person from being able to protect themselves from a violent attack
