Coeur d’Alene OKs Guns At Parades

Guns are now allowed at public events in Coeur d'Alene after a unanimous vote on the issue by the city council. During Tuesday night's regular meeting of the council, City Attorney Mike Gridley (pictured) presented the proposed amendment, which addresses a city municipal code regarding weapons at public events such as parades. The resolution adopted by the city council amends the code by removing the word "firearm" from a list of weapons not permitted at public events. "I think one of the goals of the original ordinance, as I understand it, was to avoid conflict in the community," Gridley said. "Right now we live in a time where this issue regarding firearms is an issue that may lead to conflict and confrontation if our ordinance stays the way it is"/Keith Cousins, Coeur d'Alene Press.
