    Suprised at a local park

    So anyone that lives in the triangle area near Raleigh, NC has probably heard of Pullen Park. It was recently renovated and this past weekend we took my daughter to see it for the first time since it re-opened to the public.

    Right at the entrance to the park is a sign with the park rules. I was pleasantly suprised to see they posted the usual no weapons allowed with the caveat that anyone carrying under NCGS 14-415 was permitted.

    Finally our state is allowing us to carry in public parks as of 12/1/2011.

    My wife and I of course both took full advantage of our right :)

    Here in FL. They passed a new state law that bans all local government from having ordnances that bans firearms in places, that the state says you can carry them. Like parks for example. They can even punish the official who passes such an ordnance trying to supersede state law.

    I remember visiting Pullen Park when I lived up in Raleigh for a little while. I'm glad they have revised the law, that park was a hot bed for shadiness.

    Glad to hear it especially since I hear that some other NC cities are trying to subvert the intent of the law. I am pleasantly surprised Raleigh did the right thing

    It is definately NOT a shady area now. It is extremely nice and a family oriented place. It reminds me now of a mini amusement park.
