Why? MAC Parks and Recreation have signs that directly violate Oregon State Statutes (ORS 166.170 & 166.173) for legally carrying firearms in the public parks. For a few months now many of us have been contacting the parks department via phone, email, and even Facebook. We asked that they either replace the signs or take them down. Neither has happened. In fact they (the city council) responded by UNANIMOUSLY passing a new city ordinance (Ordinance No. 4991) in which "Restricting the carrying of loaded firearms in public places".
