Gun on playground sparks 2nd Amendment debate

By Steve Chamraz. CREATED May 5, 2014 - UPDATED: May 6, 2014

OCONOMOWOC - A photo on Facebook has sparked a social media scrum over the right to carry a gun in a public park.

Heather Karenz posted a photo of her son on a slide at the Imagination Station park, while a man stands several feet away with a holstered gun on his hip.
 
"There's a lot of debate," Karenz said of the discussion prompted by her photo. "There are people saying that's his right, and I agree, 100 percent. But when it's illegal for it to be on city property, everybody needs to obey that."
 
Oconomowoc does not allow firearms on city property, which means Karenz was right to be concerned.
 
While the sign in the park does not explicitly state a ban on firearms, a spokesperson for the city said local law banning guns applies.
