Revolutionary War reenactment canceled due to city firearm ordinances (VIDEO)

Gun Laws, Politics & 2nd Amendment, Second Amendment

A historical society in northern California was told that a planned mock battle with historical significance could not be staged unless the re-enactors used sticks rather than muskets.

CBS13 reported the Elk Grove Historical Society planned a two-day event in April, near the anniversary of the battles of Lexington and Concord, and hoped to draw 3,000 visitors.

“We would have encampments and all kinds of entertainment for the kids to see,” said Jim Entrican, who participates with the group.

But the city and parks district refused to grant the non-profit a permit, explaining local ordinances were in place against discharging any firearm.

“They actually asked us if we can use wooden sticks, and can you see 12 men in full regalia and another 12 charging with wooden sticks saying ‘Bang bang!’ It just doesn’t have the same effect,” Entrican said.

Entrican said the group is working with the city to try and stage a future event, but for now, this year’s is off the table.
