    Accoding to MuniCode;

    Who thinks GCO should persue a change to this ordinance to add language exempting self defense?

    I don't think this needs to be a priority for GCO right now. Maybe once all the cities and counties that do not allow carry of a firearm in their parks are corrected first.

    I dont think the intent of the law is to keep one from defending ones self with a firearm in a life threatening situation ......but rather to keep some fool from popping a few caps off on the forth of July or midnight at New Years......but yes the specific language would be nice.

    State Law already provides for that doesn't it? State Law states that you can shoot to defend yourself, a 3rd party or to stop a forceable-felony...That already provides the necessary wording , right?

    I think you are right, it should. Specifically:

    "Part 2 or 3 of Article 4 of Chapter 11 of this title"
    means
    16-11-120 thru 16-11-134 (with a fireams license, that is limited to 16-11-127 Public Gatherings)

    16-3-21 declares this null and void in the case of self defense.
