Agreement allows guns in state parks
(AP) – The Nevada attorney general’s office has settled a lawsuit and agreed to allow anyone who can legally possess a firearm to bring a loaded gun into state parks.
Under a stipulation filed Sept. 14 in Reno federal court, a rule that barred most visitors from possessing loaded firearms will not be enforced while regulations are amended.
The Las Vegas Sun reports the agreement was signed by a judge Tuesday.
Park rules had allowed people with concealed weapons permits or hunters in authorized areas to have guns, but required others to lock them in their vehicles.
Colorado-based Mountain States Legal Foundation sued in July on behalf of an Idaho man who claimed he was threatened with jail time if he fired his gun, even in self defense, in a Nevada park.
