PARA Removes Signs Prohibiting Guns From Bobby Miller Activity Center After Attorney General Investigation
Signs posted at the entrance to the Bobby Miller Activity Center prohibiting firearms has been removed after an investigation by the Attorney General determined the notice violated state law.
Paul Arnold with Bama Carry filed a complaint with the AG about the signs a couple of months ago. “We abide by the law. We expect them to do also,' he told WBRC. "I had no response from parks and rec. I emailed them two or three times. The only thing they did do was take it out of their online rental agreement."
While the sign prohibiting firearms has been removed, a new notice declaring the center a 'gun-free zone' that says all visitors may be subject to the prohibitions contained in the act.
Paul Arnold plans to challenge that sign as well as another sign prohibiting firearms at Northport city hall. “They can adapt to what state law says but they cannot make or create laws any stricter to what state law says,” Arnold insisted.
PARA did not respond to the news agency's attempts to reach them for a statement.
