BHP reader Jane Bennie inquires what’s up with the “huge” new No Guns Allowed signs that have been placed at the entrances to all of Brentwood’s city parks. In particular, she points out the one at River Park, across from the Brentwood Library. She wonders if it needed to be so big.
According to City Attorney Roger Horner, cities like Brentwood that “opted out” of the law allowing registered guns in parks are required to post the No Guns Allowed signs at prominent locations, which include all park entrances and buildings.
The law requires that they be at least six-inches-high-by-14-inches wide.
“Some of ours are larger, so they can be more noticeable,” Horner explained in an email. “The wording is dictated by state law.”
So that’s what’s up with that.
