Twin Falls To Allow Loaded Guns in County Parks

Warren Price – Thinkstock

TWIN FALLS (KTVB) — Twin Falls County officials are working on a new ordinance that will allow loaded guns in county parks.

The Times-News reports that commissioners say the move is needed to bring county laws in line with state law.

Workers have already removed signs prohibiting firearms.

The new ordinance doesn’t allow the firing of guns in county parks except in self-defense.

Commissioners decided to make the move after a group called Idaho Second Amendment Alliance told the county its law conflicted with a 2008 state law giving the state control of gun regulations.

The county is scheduled to hold a public hearing on the planned new ordinance on Friday.
