(WEAU) - The Eau Claire County Board passed a new ordinance allowing loaded guns to be carried in parks.
In the past guns were only allowed if there were unloaded and encased. Mike Torud with the Eau Claire County Parks and Forestry Department says people carrying a gun need to have a valid concealed carry permit to do so and cannot shoot guns in the park unless it is in self-defense.
Violators can be fined up to about $263.
Torud says signs should be up in parks in about the next two weeks.
Pretty soon, we’ll all be wearing Colts....just like when I was a kid.

FREEP THIS POLL ***PING!*** FRmail me if you want to be added or removed from the Fearless Poll-Freeping Freepers Ping list. And be sure to ping me to any polls that need Freepin', if I miss them. (looks like a medium volume list) (gordongekko909, founder of the pinglist, stays on the list until his ghost signs up for the list)
I'll be handling the Poll Freeping pings while Dynachrome's gone. Errors and omissions are all mine until the handoff when he returns.
Poll is part way down on the left.
They must not have liked the results...now is a poll on cereal!
“Do you think cereal companies should market their unhealthy cereal to kids? Yes No”
Well, if you want to bypass that loaded poll you can just hit the “Submit” button, and get to the concealed carry one that way. Or try clicking on this link:
Aw, shoot. They must be afraid of cereal killers voting in the gun poll.
Hunton Peck’s last link works.
