Bucks County (PA) officials overturn gun ban in county parks :: 05/25/2011
Packing for a picnic has taken on added meaning in Bucks County.
The county commissioners last week rescinded a 14-year-old ban on bringing guns into county parks.
But if the ants invade, kindly resist the urge to blow them away. A ban on discharging firearms in the parks remains.
The commissioners acted on the advice of county solicitor Glenn Hains, who said the policy conflicted with state law. The Pennsylvania Uniform Firearms Act of 1995 prohibits counties from regulating "the lawful ownership, possession, transfer, or transportation" of firearms.
