LEE COUNTY, Fla. - Taking a loaded gun into a Lee County park is no longer illegal - if you have a valid permit to carry one.
A state statue already allowed permitted firearms in parks across the state but Lee County banned the practice for public safety reasons.
Tuesday county commissioners voted unanimously to reverse the ban and adhere to the state statute.
Some people argued the ban violated the second amendment right to bear arms.
