UPDATE: Judge Says Festival Can’t Ban Guns

posted on April 20, 2015

As we reported on Friday, organizers of this year’s Norman Music Festival, set for April 23-25 in Norman, Okla., declared guns to be unwelcome, even though the musical event is taking place on public land. The city claimed that the ban was legal because the festival should be “treated as a private business,” but a local judge has disagreed. The Cleveland County court ruled on Friday that the city may not order police to enforce the ban, meaning that festival-goers may freely exercise their right to self-defense.
