Castle Rock Voters Decide Future Of Open Carry Law

CASTLE ROCK, Colo. (AP) — Voters in Castle Rock are deciding who gets to say whether people are allowed to openly carry firearms in public spaces.

They are casting mail-in ballots in a special election that ends Tuesday.

In January, the town council voted to allow the open carry of firearms in town buildings and parks but not schools or courts. Residents who opposed the move forced an election on the issue.

Currently, the town manager has the authority over the open carry of firearms in public buildings and parks. Voters are being asked whether to remove that authority and whether future decisions on gun restrictions should be left to voters to decide.
