Ford Festival Park

Post Number:#1  Postby phil1979 » Sun Feb 15, 2015 1:26 am

Is this park owned by Ford or some other private entity? If it's public property, it should be good to carry at either openly or concealed. Their CountryUSA website states that weapons are prohibited. If it is public property, can a private entity hosting an event there legally trespass you for carrying?

Georgia's HB 60 recently updated this part of our weapons code so that persons in control of "private property" may prohibit weapons on that "private property" - it used to just state "property".

Also, I saw where OCVB has on their website that they are a "private" non-profit, yet receive their funding from hotel tax dollars. If it really is private, that doesn't seem right for tax dollars to flow directly to them.

It is privately owned. The Ford dealership bought the naming rights.

So in Wisconcin, a public park for example could be rented or leased to a private entity for an event at which the public is invited to, and the private entity could legally ban weapons?

Does Ford own the land? Naming rights is not the same as holding the deed of ownership.

The property is privately owned.

Even if it was not, there is a part of the statute as follows;

Organizers of a special event may prohibit the carrying of a firearm or a particular type of firearm at an event that is open to the public, provided it is for a duration of not more than three weeks, and either requires an admission fee or has designated entrances to and from the event that are locked when the event is closed.

Read my post. Ford owns nothing. The local dealership bought the naming rights. For advertizement purposes. This is done at many sports venues and such.
