City of Cosmopolis Amend Firearm Ordinance
The City of Cosmopolis continued their effort to update city ordinances to work with the Right to Bear Arms within the city.
On Wednesday, the city council amended an ordinance regarding weapons in city parks, removing a prohibition of firearms within the parks to reflect state laws for legal firearm possession. The ordinance states that it is unlawful to possess airguns, bows and arrows, and martial arts weapons including nunchucks and throwing stars.
The amendment comes after the city received a letter from the Second Amendment Foundation stating that the ordinance was outdated. The organization has been reviewing ordinances statewide.
The updated ordinance will go into effect on May 17th.
