August 12, 2009 - The Knoxville City Council has determined that it will not
consider the resolution opting out of the state statute authorizing
permit holders to carry guns in parks.
This decision was based
on a legal opinion that a valid ordinance already exists which
prohibits persons from possessing or using firearms in parks.
As a result, City Council concluded that a workshop on the
proposed resolution is not necessary at this time.
Consequently, No workshop will be held August 20, 2009
regarding Guns in Parks.
