CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -
Mecklenburg County Commissioners decided Tuesday to delay a vote on guns in local parks for another two weeks.
Originally, commissioners were expected to create specific guidelines for 2011 state law that allows citizens with a concealed carry permit to have a gun in local parks.
"These are people who have gone above and beyond to prove that they are trustworthy. They've been finger printed. They've gone through the background investigation," said Mecklenburg County Commissioner Matthew Ridenhour.
Ridenhour, a Republican from District 5, says permit holders are responsible citizens, and should be allowed to carry guns on all parts of public park property. County staff proposed a recent ordinance that would allow permit holders to carry guns in parks, but mandates the holders stay at least 25 feet away from playgrounds, public sporting fields, park offices, and other park facilities.
"Kids are playing in the park, and kids are curious and it's not good for a kid to see someone walking around with a gun," said Charlotte mother Tyesha Stuckey.
Ridenhour says the guns would be concealed, and the 25 foot rule is a "bad idea." He wants to permit holders to walk freely around public parks, and present no danger to citizens.
"The Constitution of the United States is very clear on the Second Amendment and I am a proponent of that and I will continue to fight that," he said.
County Commissioners are expected to give the debate a final vote on April 2nd.
