Tri-State News, Weather

A man who led a rally in support of open in carry in downtown St. Louis said people have the right to carry guns into the zoo.

Jeffry Smith, who lives in Ohio, said he plans to come to St. Louis Zoo while armed and said under law, he is allowed to so even though the zoo has signs posted saying guns are not allowed. Smith led a rally in support of open carry in downtown St. Louis, in fall, 2014.

“It’s a person’s choice to make whether to carry a gun in there or not. Am I necessarily concerned within the confines of the zoo? Maybe so, maybe not,” Smith said. “Give me the case law or cite statute that says you have the ability to post these signs.”
