In a few days a new state law will take effect allowing people with concealed gun permits to carry guns in public parks. But some towns are moving to keep guns away.

The Havelock Commissioners voted on an ordinance Monday night to keep guns away from playgrounds, swimming pools, athletic fields and athletic facilities.

In a three to two vote the commissioners voted in favor of the ordinance, but because the vote was not the super majority, the ordinance will be voted on again on December 12th. It only needs to pass then on a simple majority.

For now, come December 1st, people with concealed gun permits will be allowed to carry them in Havelock city parks.
